The debate on satellite camps just received another interesting chapter.

The NCAA has rescinded its ban on them, making the camps legal again. 

Here is a release from the NCAA:

The Division I Board of Directors today rescinded a rule prohibiting Football Bowl Subdivision coaches from holding or working at camps and clinics away from their school, adopted earlier this month by the Division I Council.

Jim Harbaugh has responded to the ruling, in a roundabout way, thanks to Michigan football's Twitter account.

Harbaugh, of course, was in the center of the debate. He went on a satellite camp tour last year, and plans to do so again.

SEC coaches were outspoken against his methods, in an attempt to protect their own territory.

The debate will continue, as the NCAA is directing its council to take a broader look at college football recruiting.

“The Board of Directors is interested in a holistic review of the football recruiting environment, and camps are a piece of that puzzle,” said Board of Directors chair Harris Pastides, who is the President of of South Carolina.
