Michigan's Summer Swarm tour of satellite camps kicks off next week. Regardless of SEC uproar, the show will go on and Jim Harbaugh and staff will travel across the nation to coach and meet with some of the top prospects out there.

One of the last stops on the tour before returning back to the Metro Detroit area is the DB Guru Football Camp in Fresno, California, which also happens to be the hometown of one of Michigan's top 2016 targets.

Five-star linebacker Caleb Kelly will be in attendance when the Wolverine staff heads to California and it seems like he is extremely excited for it. He spoke to Tim Sullivan of Rivals in the Detroit Free Press earlier this week. (FREE)

"They're having one of their satellite camps in Fresno (June 11), I feel like it's basically just for me," Kelly said with a laugh. "They're coming down, and I'll be out there hanging out with all the coaches. It was cool how it came about. It is special to have all those coaches come."


"All the coaches out there, they're NFL-level, but they're college coaches," Kelly said. "They handle business. They practiced four hours, they have their meetings as long as they can, and it's just football, football, football.

"It's cool going out there having the coaches that have been in the league, because they have connections to the league," he said. "It's cool just going and meeting all those dudes. You just know that they have those connections, so it's a good thing for the future if you go there."

Khalid Kareem will be in Ann Arbor this weekend

Class of 2016 defensive end Khalid Kareem (Farmington Hills, Michigan) will visit the University of Michigan this weekend, according to 247's Clint Brewster.

The entire nation has been checking on him, so it will be interesting to see if he decides to stay home or move out of state to go to school and play football. Many still believe that he will ultimately end up choosing Michigan State.

Kareem is a four-star prospect and the 13th-ranked defensive end in the 2016 class, per the 247 Composite.

Tony Butler visiting in mid-June

Three-star 2016 cornerback Tony Butler (Lakewood, Ohio). who is currently committed to Pittsburgh, will make another visit to Michigan on June 20, per Steve Lorenz of Wolverine247.

Butler is a potential flip candidate. This is a recruitment to keep an eye on.

Pair of targets trim lists of schools

Wide receiver Grant Holloway (Chesapeake, Virginia) has trimmed his list of schools to 10, according to Scout's Michael Clark.

Holloway is a three-star prospect and the 132nd-ranked wide receiver in the 2016 class, per the 247 Composite.

Class of 2016 offensive tackle Jean Delance (Mesquite, Texas) released his top nine schools on Thursday night via his Twitter account, which included Michigan.

Delance is a four-star prospect and the 11th-ranked offensive tackle in the 2016 class, per the 247 Composite.
