Satellite camps, recruiting, hoops hot topics around the SEC

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Southeastern Conference coaches and athletic directors will convene next week with familiar topics on the agenda, including football recruiting in general and satellite camps in particular, along with strengthening men's basketball across the league.

The much-publicized issue of camps clearly isn't dead, though the NCAA Division I Board of Directors in April scrapped a proposal from the SEC and ACC to ban them. The board also gave the Division I Council until Sept. 1 to make initial recommendations on the entire college football recruiting model, satellite camps included.

Peter Jok to return to Iowa for senior season

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Peter Jok will return to Iowa men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.

University officials announced Friday that the shooting guard has decided to stay on the team for his senior year. Coach Fran McCaffery says Jok's senior leadership will play a key role for the team next season.

Jok averaged 16.1 points a game for the Hawkeyes last season and was a second-team All-Big Ten selection.
