Emmert says NCAA will put satellite camps on top of list for oversight committee
The calls to address the supposed loopholes with satellite camps have been heard, and will be given a high priority status from the NCAA to the football rules oversight committee.
NCAA president Mark Emmert said the football rules oversight committee will have the issue “on top of their list” when they get together later this year and said “I think they have to address it nationally.”
Given the attention given to satellite camps over the past couple of years it is not all too surprising the topic will be discussed by the football rules oversight committee. The committee will not be able to make any formal rules changes that would go into effect this season as far as camps go, and it is more likely the discussion will end without any real resolution on the topic.
The committee features just one football coach as a voting member, Georgia’s Mark Richt. Other voting members on the committee include Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, Miami Hurricanes AD Blake James, Arizona State AD Ray Anderson, MAC commissioner Jon Steinbrecher, UCF AD Michael Stansbury, Conference USA associate commissioner Alfred White, Nebraska AD Shawn Eichorst, Big South commissioner Kyle Kallander, Colgate AD Vicky Chun, Northern Arizona AD Lisa Campos and one student-athlete to be determined.
