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.

Illinois' Tate rejoins basketball team after case dropped

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Illinois athletic director Josh Whitman says Jaylon Tate has been reinstated to the basketball team after a misdemeanor battery charge against him was dropped.

He was accused of striking a woman in March, but the charge was dropped Tuesday for lack of evidence. Whitman said Tate had "shown exceptional character during this unfortunate situation" and hoped fans will welcome him back.
