MELBOURNE, Fla. — Any plans Florida had for satellite camps may now be back on.
The NCAA Board of Directors rescinded that decision Thursday, and the SEC’s ban on them ends May 29.
“It’s an opportunity for coaches to go off campus during a quiet period and evaluate personnel,” McElwain said of satellite camps Tuesday at Space Coast Gator Club. “That’s really what it’s all about. Hey look, it’s a rule. I don’t really care. We’ll join in. How’s that?”
McElwain held satellite camps when he coached Colorado State to get exposure to more players in the state of Colorado. He’s looking to do the same at Florida.
“We’re worried about our footprint that we normally recruit in and we’ll continue to do that,” McElwain said. “It’ll be interesting. … We’ll figure it out, and whatever the rules are, that’s what we’ll do.”
