No issue has been more polarizing in college football recruiting over the past decade than satellite camps.Satellite camps have been a hot-button issue in the recruiting world for years. Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 teams have conducted them all over the country, but they reached national awareness after Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh conducted an eight-day Summer Swarm tour in 2015 that took the Wolverines deep into SEC recruiting territory. In early April, the NCAA Division I Council outlawed satellite camps after numerous ACC and SEC coaches pushed to get the recruiting rules changed. However, the NCAA rescinded the ban just weeks later, and virtually every major program in the country held some sort of satellite camp in June and July.While the debate over satellite camps was raging this spring and summer, a separate NCAA subcommittee was well into its second year of a holistic review of the entire recruiting model. When the NCAA reversed course with the satellite camp ban, it asked this subcommittee to look at potential modifications to camps and clinics participation. The subcommittee was initially asked to have these recommendations by Sept. 1, but the NCAAs Board of Directors told the group recently that it has until Nov. 1 to present its findings. Either way, were not far from some preliminary guidance on what satellite camps will look like in the future.Over a two-month period, ESPN.com interviewed more than 50 people who were directly impacted by satellite camps. This included everyone from recruits to high school coaches to head coaches to assistants from each of the Power 5 conferences.What became clear is that prospects believe satellite camps are a vital part of todays recruiting process, high school coaches are concerned the camps allow outsiders to interject themselves into prospects lives,and college coaches are torn on whats best for both the prospective student-athletes and their programs. Yet almost everybody involved believes a positive solution can be found, and there are plenty of solid ideas to go around.You have to go to satellite camps to get noticedOn a 100-degree, late June afternoon in Kansas City, more than 400 players crowded onto a single turf field at Blue Springs South High School for the Midwest Elite Camp. They were there with hopes of impressing Harbaugh.By the end of the satellite camp, one player, defensive end Anthony Payne out of Raymore-Peculiar (Missouri) High School, had caught the attention of the Wolverines coaches, and he earned a scholarship days later. Payne is one of summers best examples of a satellite camp success story. Because of his one-day performance at the camp in Kansas City, Payne became one of the most heavily recruited players in Missouri before he committed to Kansas State in late July.Yet there are many others who attended satellite camps this summer to earn Power 5 offers. Those success stories reinforce recruits belief that attending satellite camps has become a vital part of the recruiting process.I dont know where I would have gone had it not been for satellite camps, Payne said. They were a very positive experience for me, and it helped me get the type of attention I knew I deserved. I really didnt think it was that big of a deal to go to all of the camps. You have to go to satellite camps to get noticed. Thats what I figured. Thats why I went to all of those camps, and it turned out to be true.Even elite recruits, prospects ranked in the ESPN 300, are fans of satellite camps because of the opportunities they create to work with the schools that are recruiting them. ESPN 300 cornerback Ambry Thomas, out of Martin Luther King High School in Detroit, wanted to interact more with the Florida coaches who were after him, so he attended one of the Gators satellite camps. Cam Akers, the nations second-ranked running back and the 26th-ranked player overall, attended a Michigan satellite camp because he knew he wouldnt be able to get from his home in Clinton, Mississippi, to the Wolverines campus anytime soon.With me being from down in South Mississippi, its not easy to get to places like Michigan, Akers said. Its not easy for recruits to get to far places like that. So for me, going to that Michigan satellite camp was a big deal.A number of recruits pointed out that attending local satellite camps in their region helps prospects save money instead of flying all over the country to visit college team camps held on campuses. Prospect Leonard Warner, from Brookwood High School in Snelville, Georgia, the second-ranked inside linebacker, was able to work out for Ohio State at a satellite camp less than 10 minutes from his house. Fifth-ranked receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones of Cass Tech in Detroit attended the Sound Mind Sound Body Academy in Detroit and showcased his skills in front of coaches from programs in each of the Power 5 conferences.Satellite camps are how recruiting is done today, Peoples-Jones said. Its all about offers, exposure and experience, and you can get that by going to great satellite camps.Third-party problemsYou wont find many high school coaches who disagree with recruits when it comes to the opportunities satellite camps create. For example, Midwest City (Oklahoma) High School assistant coach Jason Sexton said he takes a van load of kids all over Texas and Oklahoma each summer to hit satellite camps, and that allows his players to be seen by five or six schools at one time because their parents dont have the means to get out and see those schools.There are, however, a number of issues that concern the high school coaching community, namely the risk of injury a prospect faces in attending multiple events just weeks before he opens high school practice or the fact that many college coaches dont instruct at their own camps. The largest concern is the way satellite camps have allowed third parties to become involved with a prospects recruitment.Some third-party organizations -- personal coaches, private trainers or advisors -- latch on to players by running non-institutional camps for which they advertise that college coaches will be in attendance. However, many high school coaches call these events money grabs because they often fail to deliver on promises of exposure for the recruits, and they are poorly executed. Potomac (Maryland) Bullis School coach Pat Cilento estimates that a third-party organization that ran a satellite camp in Baltimore earlier this summer made roughly $30,000 off the 600 players in attendance, and there were probably only a dozen legitimate FBS recruits there.High school coaches, including Marcus High School (Flower Mound, Texas) coach Gerry Stanford, call these third parties street agents that make recruits and their families promises they can never keep, often bilk them for thousands of dollars and leave the local coach to pick up the pieces when major scholarships never materialize.These trainers give the implication, Well, youre not getting looked at, so lets take you to this Michigan satellite camp or this Oklahoma State or OU satellite camp, and Im going to get you recruited by all the big-time schools, Sexton said.This trainer is going to tell them Hey, youre good enough to play at Michigan or OU, so he can continue to put his hand in their pocket. Players are going to come up with that money any which way they can because this guy is telling them the things they want to hear. I had a trainer tell one of my kids, We need to go to this Michigan camp because its going to get you the looks you need. Ive already got his parents coming back to us asking, This guy got our foot in the door at this Michigan, so why didnt an offer materialize?College coaches know the system isnt perfectCollege coaches admit theyre in a tough situation with satellite camps. Even those coaches who are against satellite camps but held camps anyway are concerned theyve turned into something they were never intended to be.In some cases, coaches say theyve conducted satellite camps at certain locations to do a favor for a high school coach in hopes he returns the favor someday or to catch the attention of a high-value prospect theyre targeting. A Pac-12 assistant admitted to bending the rules by openly recruiting a player at one of these camps, but he wasnt the only one who admitted to that.A Big 12 assistant said, Weve come a long way from the days of trying to find under-recruited players, and now satellite camps are hardly an evaluation tool and are mostly about getting your brand out on Twitter. Georgia coach Kirby Smart said he went to four or five satellite camps and didnt get a whole lot out of them, but he wasnt the only one.By this stage, we usually know whether or not were recruiting them, Cal coach Sonny Dykes said. I dont think were going to learn that much about them by going out and doing a satellite camp. Recruiting is all about relationships, and its about trust, and I think thats a lot more important than testing some kid.Just like the high school coaches, college coaches are concerned about outsiders becoming involved with recruits because of satellite camps.What weve done now in college football is weve opened the door for third parties to be involved, like AAU basketball, South Carolina coach Will Muschamp said. Theres a lot of people making a bunch of money off these satellite camps and trying to influence recruits to go to a bunch of different schools. If thats what we want, lets have at it, but I dont know if thats really what we want. It needs some regulation.A lot of good ideas out thereRegulation is what many involved with college football recruiting are expecting once the football recruiting subcommittee sends its findings to the Board of Directors on Nov. 1. Although the committee is also expected to suggest changes to key elements of recruiting, such as an early signing period or modifications to the official visit schedule, no issue will be more closely monitored for adjustment than that of satellite camps.The good news is that there are a lot of really good ideas out there on ways they can be improved, Hutchinson (Kansas) High School coach Ryan Cornelsen said. If the folks at NCAA are willing to listen, then everybody would feel better about them.TCU head coach Gary Patterson suggested a return of the days when recruiters could travel to established regional camps, such as the Nike Opening Regionals, during the spring evaluation process to watch the events. The NCAA banned that in 2008, but Patterson said allowing coaches to be at these events would reduce the value of satellite camps and solve a lot of the problems theyve created.Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze floated another interesting idea: banning team-sponsored satellite camps and having FBS conferences take over and conduct them in April and May, when recruiters are on the road.Have the SEC run the satellite camp [in its region], or have three of them, Freeze said. Or have the Big 12 satellite camp in Dallas. Youre already out on the road, so this Saturday is the Big 12 satellite camp in Dallas and Houston. A joint venture, the SEC and ACC in Florida or wherever it may be, Atlanta, and its run by the league offices.I think you could accomplish everything you need as coaches, and that way you know theres no third party running the camp. And if we need to extend the evaluation period to eight weeks, extend it. But leave that summertime for the kids to get to your campus, so they get to know you, and then they can make a quality decision based on the environment they see there.One of the most feasible ideas floating around emerged in mid-June, when the Virginian-Pilot obtained documents from the NCAA suggesting the organization was considering eliminating team-sponsored satellite camps and instead sponsoring camps hosted at NFL training facilities or high schools that any coach could attend.The idea of the NCAA taking over satellite camps is a definite hit with many high school and college coaches. Most interviewed agreed that a nationalized camp plan would alleviate their concerns about unregulated camps and still help kids get more opportunities to compete for scholarships. Prospects would be on board with the idea too.Recruits would love them, most definitely, ESPN 300 offensive guard and Auburn pledge Nick Brahms said. They could get a chance to play on bigger fields that they might not ever play on again. As long as the college coaches are still there, itd still be smooth. If theyre not, then they probably wouldnt be worth the time. But if the NCAA steps in and runs it and coaches are there, recruits will love them. I think that would eliminate all of the controversy weve seen with these camps this summer. Raiders Jerseys Sale . -- The St. Johns IceCaps weathered a wild first period with the help of goaltender Jussi Olkinuora, before finding offensive inroads in the second. Raiders Jerseys Hoodies .Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play. http://www.cheapoaklandraidersjerseys.com/ . It was hard for Luck to pull off another comeback, or even get into the end zone, while standing on the sideline. Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to rookie Keenan Allen and Nick Novak kicked four field goals to give the Chargers a 19-9 victory against the Colts on Monday night. Wholesale Raiders Jerseys .Y. - New Orleans forward Anthony Davis was chosen Friday to replace the injured Kobe Bryant in the NBA All-Star game that will be played in his home city. Raiders Jerseys Shop . Its the second straight game Bell has scored in extra time for Kelowna, which beat the Brandon Wheat Kings 6-5 on Friday, and he now has four game-winning goals on the season. LONDON -- Manchester United hoped Jose Mourinho would provide a quick-fix.Hire the manager renowned as a serial winner and the stupor of the fleeting David Moyes and Louis van Gaal eras would vanish.Theres little sign of that.If anything, results and performances suggest the record 20-time English champions are regressing. Even Mourinho calls his team fragile.With five losses in his opening 16 games, Mourinho has made a worse start than Alex Fergusons two immediate successors who never came close to winning the Premier League or Champions League.Under Mourinho, United is even a diminished force in the second-tier Europa League. A 2-1 loss to Fenerbahce on Thursday left United third in its group with only six points out of a possible 12.Although Mourinho has previously expressed his disdain for UEFAs Thursday night competition, the Portuguese coach doesnt expect his team to slacken. Theres pride on the line, if little prestige.Our problem started in our global attitude, Mourinho said, berating his team for treating for the game like a friendly.The only encouraging moment in Turkey for United was Wayne Rooney ending a goal drought of almost three months -- a moment of personal satisfaction, certainly for the 31-year-old captain. But there is little evidence Rooney, so ineffective for Mourinho, will provide any potency on Sunday at Swansea.Rooneys only goals this season have come against the Turkish leagues fifth-place team and Bournemouth. No team of any might has felt threatened by the presence of the fading Rooney.While Rooney symbolizes some of Uniteds shortcomings, the burden of the blame shouldnt rest on the striker.There are clearly deeper flaws when the team goes through October without winning a single Premier League game, drawing three times and losing once on Mourinhos humiliating return to Chelsea.And in those four games, United has scored only once -- failing even to find a way past promoted Burnley last weekend to drop to eighth in the league.Sometimes teams dont score goals because of their philosophy, because the team isnt aggressive enough and doesnt risk enough, Mourinho said.Zlatan Ibrahimovic hit the ground running with four goals in four games after signing amid great fanfare in July, but since then the 35-year-old forward has looked his age by netting only once in 11.Some players in our attacking arreas lack confidence, Mourinho said.dddddddddddd Theyre not sharp and getting the chances that they can.And the treatment room is getting crowded, too.Center backs Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling were joined on the injury list on Thursday by Paul Pogba, who limped off with a thigh injury.Not that Pogba, the worlds most expensive player, has been looking like a 105 million euro ($117 million) midfielder since rejoining the club in August.Then theres another of Mourinhos signings: Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The Armenian played the last 30 minutes of the loss in Turkey after two months out of the team. But the attacking midfielder is a shadow of the player who scored 23 goals and set up another 32 last season for Borussia Dortmund.He has to do more, it is as simple as that, Mourinho said. We have big expectations in the club. We have lots of players for these positions and he has to play better than (Juan) Mata, he has to play better than (Jesse) Lingard, he has to play better than (Anthony) Martial.(Mkhitaryan) has to play better than them. It is as simple as that. Every manager in the world wants to win matches ... I am no different.But something has changed with the two-time Champions League-winning coach, who is exhibiting the sullen and downbeat demeanor only seen later in his reigns at Chelsea, Inter Milan or Real Madrid.United should have read the warning signs.Maybe last season at Chelsea -- when a title-winning team tumbled into the lower-reaches of the Premier League -- was not a blip.Can the 53-year-old Mourinho still find a way to innovate and rejuvenate United in the way Juergen Klopp has turned Liverpool into a title contender again or Mauricio Pochettino has refreshed Tottenham?Sundays trip to south Wales offers the perfect platform to halt Uniteds four-match run without a win in the legaue against a Swansea side winless in nine and second-from-last.Mourinho will certainly have a good seat to evaluate his team in Swansea, after being banned from the touchline for two separate offenses toward referees. But the view from the directors box might not be pretty, based on recent displays.---AP Global Soccer Writer Rob Harris is at www.twitter.com/RobHarris and www.facebook.com/RobHarrisReports Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
