ANN ARBOR – With the NCAA ban on satellite camps rescinded, Michigan continues to reshape its summer schedule across the country.

Jim Harbaugh’s tour of satellite camps now includes a visit to the home of the nation’s No. 1 2017 overall recruit, Najee Harris, who is verbally committed to Alabama. Michigan will have a satellite camp in June at Antioch High School in California, according to a report Tuesday from 247 Sports. Harris is a five-star running back and rated the top player in the nation, according to 247 Sports.

Prior to the NCAA ban on satellite camps, Michigan had camps scheduled this summer in Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Virginia, Florida and Texas. The camp at Antioch is the latest to be added to Michigan’s revamped summer scheduled after the ban was rescinded on Thursday.

According to 247 Sports, Michigan and Georgia will be featured in a June 2 camp at Maynard H. Jackson High School in Atlanta, hosted by Cedar Grove High School. Michigan will host a camp at the University of South Alabama, according to AL.com, on June 7 – the same day a camp was originally scheduled at Prattville High School in Alabama. Michigan, Ole Miss and Mississippi State will team up for a June 8 camp at Pearl High School in Mississippi, according to The Clarion-Ledger.
