Ohio State football coaches will be deep in the heart of Texas later this spring to get an up-close look at recruits from the Lone Star State.
Texas Southern — an FCS program in Houston — will partner with the Buckeyes and Arizona for a satellite camp on June 8. Texas Southern defensive coordinator Tom Anthony provided some details about the camp on Twitter.

Satellite camps have been a hot-button issue across college football for the last few years. They provide an opportunity for schools to see lots of recruits in one day at a place typically not on their recruiting turf. And it falls under NCAA guidelines — for now.
Ohio State was part of multiple satellite camps last year.
“You have to do what you have to do to stay up in the world of recruiting,” Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said last year about satellite camps. “But there’s also an element of freshness with our staff, too. Those are all things we’re going to evaluate, because this is really the first year we’ve done it in earnest.”
