The overwhelming feedback from Group of 5 coaches after the NCAA's decision to bring back satellite camps is jubilation. "This is a great day for football campers all across the nation," Ball State director of player personnel Tilman Clark said. "Their abilities and aspirations can now be proven to college coaches this summer. Coaching staffs in the Group of 5 can now accommodate campers who have travel restrictions by attending other institutions camps to find Division 1 talent.
