Efforts to keep recruiting stars within the Lone Star State continue thanks to satellite camps. In an announcement made via Twitter on Wednesday, University of Houston coach Tom Herman posted that he would be teaming up with Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin for two days of instruction in the Metroplex area, as well as East Texas.
Sumlin and Herman will pair up for a June 9 event at Lancaster High School. On June 10, the morning starts in the North Metroplex at Coppell High School before traveling to east Texas to finish the day with a three-hour camp at Kilgore High School.
“Excited to team up with [coach Sumlin] for our IN-STATE satellite camps” tweeted Herman. “Keeping Texas recruits home. #HTownTakeover”
The former Ohio State offensive coordinator went 13-1 during his first season as coach of the Cougars in 2015. Sumlin and the Aggies finished 8-5 with a 4-4 record in SEC play.
The three camps are part of a busy month for Texas A&M. The two days of off-campus work are sandwiched between multiple days of instruction in College Station that begin on June 5 and run through June 15. The Aggies will also be present for a June 12 satellite camp at Long Beach Poly High School in California, where Arizona and Boise State will also be participating.
Satellite camps were banned by the NCAA on April 8. That decision was rescinded later in the month.
