Auburn has agreed to join several other SEC teams at a satellite camp southeast of the Atlanta metropolitan area.
The Tigers’ coaching staff will serve as guest coaches at the event scheduled for June 9 and 10 at Woodland High in Stockbridge, Georgia.
The Georgia Minority Coaches Association is conducting the camp and will include dozens of schools’ coaches. SEC teams scheduled to send coaches include Auburn, Georgia, Mississippi State, Missouri and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
Auburn coach Gus Malzahn has not yet decided which coaches on his staff will attend the camp, according to the Georgia Minority Coaches Association.
Auburn’s agreement to participate falls in line with SEC Country’s report Thursday morning concerning the potential for three camps: one in Atlanta others in Tampa, Florida and Miami.
The Tampa camp could be hosted by Tampa Catholic, the home of incoming four-star receiver Nate Craig-Myers, according to sources familiar with discussions.
The NCAA rescinded the ban on satellite camps Thursday, sending SEC coaches scrambling for potential sites.
Auburn coaches have often been involved as speakers at the Georgia Minority Coaches Association’s annual coaching clinic, but this will be the first time they will be capable of coaching and evaluating prospects (2017 through 2021) in person at a satellite camp 50 miles outside of campus.
