If you’re wondering what Kirby Smart thinks the answer to these questions is…
Smart recently discussed the sheer number of requests he received for satellite camps.
“Everybody wants one now,” Smart said. “Every high school wants you to come to their place. So how do you keep everybody happy and go to all of them? It’s impossible. So they’re popping up everywhere and it’s a little bit out of control as far as how many of them there are.”
“Then you’ve got to decide as a coach, ‘Where do I send my coaches. Where do I send my support staff? Where is it a priority to send them?.’” he said.
… apparently it’s all of ’em.
On Monday, Cartersville head coach Joey King released news of a camp on June 15 at the LakePoint sporting venue in Emerson, Ga. Georgia is one of the schools expected to be in attendance, along with Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern, Kennesaw State, and Chattanooga…
… This is the eighth known satellite camp that has promoted Georgia as being in attendance:
- June 2 – Maynard Jackson HS (Ran by Cedar Grove HS)
- June 3-4 – Mercer
- June 5 – Lassiter HS
- June 7 – West Georgia
- June 9-10 Woodland-Stockbridge HS
- June 11 – Samford
- June 15 – LakePoint Sporting Community (Ran by Cartersville HS)
- June 16th Buford HS
The interesting thing is that all but one of them are in state. I guess it’s Kirby’s way of keeping an eye on those border fences.
