Michigan football announces Summer Swarm Tour 2015
News of the satellite camps that the Michigan coaching staff will be a part of this summer has been out for a few weeks now, but the program officially announced the dates and locations on Thursday.
The nine day tour will reach the following places:
June 4 - Bishop Chatard Football Camp, Indianapolis, Indiana
June 5 - Prattville Elite Football Camp, Prattville, Alabama
June 6 - USF One Day Camp, Tampa, Florida
June 7 - Lauren's First & Goal Camp, Easton, Pennsylvania
June 8 - Aldine "Elite" College Football Camp, Houston, Texas
June 9 - Dallas Showtyme Elite Football Camp, Grand Prairie, Texas
June 10 - Mission Viejo Football Camp, Mission Viejo, California
June 11 - DB Guru Football Camp, Fresno, California
June 12 - Sound Mind Sound Body Camp, Detroit, Michigan
This will be a good chance for the staff to get an up-close and personal look at some of the players that they are recruiting that may not necessarily be able to make it up to Ann Arbor until official visit season. Time will tell if their efforts will pay off in this regard.
- 2016 kicker Quinn Nordin (Rockford, Michigan) visited U-M on Wednesday. He is considered the top kicker in the class.
- The offers continue to roll out from the staff. The 2017 class has been a priority as of late, with offers going out to defensive back Ambry Thomas, athlete Jordan Anthony and linebacker Drew Singleton in recent days.
