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.

South Carolina forward Raymond Doby leaving the program

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Freshman forward Raymond Doby is leaving South Carolina, the latest roster change for the Gamecocks and coach Frank Martin.

Martin said Wednesday that he and Doby, cited for marijuana possession last month, felt a "change of scenery" was necessary. Two other first-year players in Eric Cobb and Jamill Gregory were dismissed last month after their arrests for property crimes involving firing a BB gun in a neighborhood near campus.
