It appears the camps such as Penn State is holding at Georgia State may not be disappearing anytime soon. Penn State is holding a second camp in Florida.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Notre Dame is in discussions to hold a camp at Georgia State in 2015. Link
This is a Yahoo Sports link, but according to the story, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have been holding satellite camps for years in Texas. Boise State has held camps in Houston, LA, Seattle and other areas.
The Yahoo story claims this is coming to light because the SEC has a rule against this which is basically there to protect their turf. It was never an issue until the big schools from outside the prime recruiting territory started the practice.
It sounds to me like this won't change quickly unless the SEC has an awful lot of clout in the changing landscape of college sports. This is a way to help kids that can't afford cross country trips to see the coaching staff in action.
Lots of highly ranked talent to coach, influence and impress. Dantonio and Franklin will be there too. Surely some under-the-radar types to discover. Just some of the '15 talent.

Probably good news for ND
The twitterverse (TVH, Trieu and Helmholdt) confirm...That's how the commitment crumbles.
(verballed to Franklin March 30)
135 years ago today in Chicago. That is when and where Michigan played their first Football game against Racine. They won 1-0 with Irving K. Pond scoring the first "touch down".
The heat was oppressive, but despite the heat, 500 students students of Racine and citizens of Chicago witnessed, what we may call, the finest game of Rugby foot-ball ever played this side of the Alleghanies.
I really wish I was making this up.
The Gator Bowl was the 6th oldest bowl game going back to 1945.
Disappointed that the logo isn't a sword going through a Tax Dragon or something.
