NCAA scraps ban on satellite camps; recruiting under study

The NCAA Division I Board of Directors scrapped a proposed ban on satellite camps Thursday, rebuffing a request from powerhouse conferences in the South and clearing the way for coaches to hold and work at clinics far from their campuses this summer.

The decision won't end the debate that centered on whether the camps are just another recruiting tool: The board also asked the Division I Council to conduct a broad assessment of the entire college football recruiting model in coming months, and that could bring modifications to how the camps are run and who can take part.

Confident Allen settling in as starting QB for Arkansas

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Austin Allen has been in this situation before, taking over at quarterback following the graduation of his older brother, Brandon.

The last time the younger Allen did so, he led Fayetteville High School to back-to-back state championships.

It's a scenario Arkansas' coaches would love nothing more than to see repeat itself on the collegiate level over the next two seasons, particularly after naming Austin Allen the Razorbacks starting quarterback this spring.
