Harbaugh Adds Another Southern Camp

The “Summer Swarm II” may not be spread out all over the country and include fever stops, but we know another destination was added this week, and it’s in the hotbed of the south for talent. This summer camp tour is looking to be focused on the south with three stops already, which include Pearl High in Mississippi on June 8, Bob Jones High School on June 10 in Alabama, and the Showtyme Elite camp in Dallas on June 13.

The newest and first stop this summer will now be Cedar Grove High School near Atlanta, Georgia for the Next Level camp on June 2. Jimmy Smith is the head coach there and has never hosted a summer camp, so he was very excited about this opportunity. When asked Thursday by the Detroit News he said, “I’m so happy about it. Smith likes this opportunity will give local players a chance at to see another program outside of their area with one of the most experienced coaching staffs in college football. Elyse Mbem-Bosse played under Smith at Cedar Creek so he had a chance to spend time with Jim Harbaugh. When asked about Harbaugh he said, “I like how straightforward he is, and I like his honesty. He wants what’s best for the kids.”

They are expecting between 300 to 500 participants.

Jim Harbaugh raised a lot questions and controversy last June when he visited Indianapolis, Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida, California Alabama, and ended in Detroit at the Sound Mind and Body. The SEC and ACC permit their football coaches to work camps within 50 miles from their school. The two conferences submitted a proposal to the NCAA that would abolish satellite camps and the vote is set for April.
