TCU partners with Alabama, USC and Ohio State for satellite camps

When the floodgates open, the unburdened water isn’t just not going to drown everything in its path. Now that satellite camps are back in the rule books, programs are partnering to make them bigger than any of us imagined they could be.

Case in point: TCU.

The Frogs announced Friday they have added Alabama, Ohio State and USC to their Gary Patterson Football Camps, a regularly scheduled tour around the state of Texas that will now feature much more star power.

The tour begins with an East Texas mini-camp on June 2. Ohio State will join the Frogs for a Friday Night Lights event June 3 in Fort Worth. Alabama and USC will accompany the Frogs to Houston for camps on June 9-10, and the Trojans will tag along for a camp in the north Dallas suburb of Plano on June 12. (One point of note: Alabama and USC open their seasons against each other Sept. 3 at AT&T Stadium in North Texas.)

For as long as these camps remain legal -- and now that this summer’s events are on the books, look for them to remain legal moving forward, at least in some capacity -- this is college football’s new reality.
