ANN ARBOR – Michigan’s revamped summer satellite camp tour continues to take shape.

Michigan will hold camps at Blue Springs South High School in Missouri and Pittsburg State University in Kansas on June 15, according to a report Tuesday night from the Kansas City Star. They are just the latest camps rescheduled by Michigan since the NCAA on Thursday rescinded its ban on the controversial practice. Earlier Tuesday, 247 Sports reported Michigan will host a June camp at Antioch High School in California – home to Najee Harris, a five-star running back.

Prior to the initial ban, which came on April 8, Michigan had camps scheduled for Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Virginia, Florida and Texas. Now Jim Harbaugh’s summer plans are coming into clearer focus.

• 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. Prattville coach Chad Anderson told MLive last week that he was unsure if the camp will be rescheduled, but he would be willing to host again after drawing more than 500 participants last summer.

• 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.

According to the Kansas City Star, Harbaugh’s wife, Sarah, is the sister of Amy Cain, who is married to Blue Springs South boys basketball coach Jimmy Cain.
