Missouri head coach Barry Odom is prepared to span the country if the SEC permits coaches to host their own satellite recruiting camps.
Currently, the SEC and ACC are the lone power five conferences that disallow coaches to host guest coaching camps. This has generated quite a bit of paranoia around the country, as coaches from rival conferences can invade recruiting hot spots in an attempt to poach prized prospects.
But things could change soon. The SEC proposed legislation to the NCAA that would restrict coaches from hosting such camps. That legislation is supposed to be voted on this week and if the SEC’s motion is denied, an amendment to the rule could be coming. The current rule restricting coaches from hosting such camps expires May 29.
Odom said that if the rule changes, many SEC coaches will be ready to migrate.
“If the SEC changes their rule, then we will have to be very proactive on getting as many places as we can get,” Odom said, according to The Columbia Daily Tribune’s David Morrison.
This rule change could be a game-changer on the recruiting trail for the SEC. Some coaches may have started packing their bags already.
