In a widely-speculated change of direction, the NCAA has removed its potential ban of so-called satellite football camps for high school football players today.
See the official announcement on the NCAA’s site here.
The proposal to implant a ban was suggested roughly a month ago to the chagrin of players, parents and some college coaches across the country. Last year, the GPA Maximum Exposure Camp at the University of Hawaii was the first locally to permit on-field contact between college coaches and prep players in nearly a decade.
The ban proposal was met almost immediately by petitioners and critics who argued that this would only empower the nation’s elite programs and undercut the efforts of every other school.
Three days ago, the U.S. Department of Justice began an informal inquiry into the proposed ban.
