The NCAA has dropped the hammer on satellite camps as they will no longer be allowed moving forward. These camps were key in recruiting, allowing coaches to evaluate high school players in their home area.

It also allowed potential recruits who couldn’t afford the trip to the school hosting the camp.  This summer Boise State had six satellite camps ready to go. After the Spring game on Saturday Coach Harsin voiced his opinion regarding the satellite camps and what it does for recruiting.

“I’m A little bit mixed on it. If everybody is doing it then what's the advantage but the opportunity to go out there and do it and get out and see these players and bring them where they don't have to travel as far was an advantage.  I also understand the disadvantage of it as well when your looking at the big picture things.  I think 13 of 24 high school players that were signed we had in camps this last year so we gotta figure that out," Said, head coach Bryan Harsin.
