Report: Michigan to host satellite camp in Australia
You can’t make this stuff up.
Apparently the geographical boundaries of the United States weren’t big enough to contain Michigan’s satellite camp tour.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Michigan’s satellite camp tour will hit Australia this summer:

That’s, of course, another way of Jim Harbaugh capitalizing on the overturned satellite camp ban. Michigan would be the first known team to travel to another continent for a satellite camp.
Why would Michigan hold a satellite camp in Australia? That is where graduate punter Blake O’Neill was from. Michigan could be in the market for more specialists, as well as continuing to globalize the Michigan brand.
For what it’s worth, Michigan has three camps on the same day in Florida. It remains to be seen if Harbaugh would even be making the trip to Australia.
That’s Michigan’s 28th announced satellite camp for June. Will it prompt another rule change?
So that's 28 camps for Michigan. You only get 25 scholarships. I'd be stunned if this volume is allowed next summer.
