Don't worry: Michigan's satellite camp in Australia is still happening
When it was reported that ProKick Australia was no longer allowed to host Michigan’s satellite camp because of an NCAA ruling, there was probably a consensus thought.
Oh no, does that mean Michigan won’t get to host a satellite camp Down Under?
No, because as expected, the Wolverines found a new partner.
According to the Detroit Free Press, the event will now take place in Melbourne and be called “The Melbourne Gridiron Development Camp.” The camp — hosted by University of New South Wales Raiders Gridiron Club — will take place on June 3 from 6-9 p.m. and will be open for all males and females 15 and older.
Tickets for the event are available for $53 online.
Unfortunately for the Australian prospects, Jim Harbaugh won’t be in attendance. Tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh and linebackers coach Chris Partridge will lead the camp, according to 247sports.
The University of New South Wales Raiders Gridiron Club will also host Hawaii — Michigan’s first opponent of 2016 — at a separate camp 10 days later.
The event is one of 38 scheduled camps for the Wolverines in June. Michigan will also take its tour to American Samoa twice.
The Wolverines will kick off their busy month next Wednesday in Indianapolis at Bishop Chatard High School.
