Valdosta State University, a Division II program, will be the home of Michigan’s satellite camp on June 4th.
The school in Georgia announced the camp as the “Night of Champions Elite Prospect Camp” for players entering ninth through 12th grade. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, along with other members of the Wolverines staff, will be at the event.

Last year, Michigan stopped at almost 40 different venues for satellite camps, including two in Georgia. However, both camps were at high schools. The NCAA Division I Council passed a decree on April 14th that schools could only work 10 days in June or July. The other important precedent is that the camps must take place on a college campus.
Michigan has seven players committed to its 2018 class, including four-star offensive guard Emil Ekiyor, four-star cornerback Myles Sims, four-star linebacker/safety Otis Reese, four-star defensive end Aidan Hutchinson, three-star cornerback Gemon Green, three-star running back Christian Turner, and three-star cornerback German Green.
Of the seven athletes committed to player for the Wolverines, Sims, Reese, and Turner are from the state of Georgia.
