Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel defended the philosophy behind Jim Harbaugh's satellite camp blitz, saying it's not all about recruiting but about advocating for football at a time the game is facing challenges. "We know 95, 98 percent of the prospects that we're going to recruit in the country before he goes to one camp," Manuel said. "So to say this is about recruiting and to put it in that light, it's not the perspective he has and not the perspective that we should have. The top programs know who they're recruiting."

Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel disputed that Jim Harbaugh's many satellite camps are just about recruiting. Manuel said Harbaugh, like most coaches at major programs "knows 95-98 percent of the players he's going to recruit before he goes to one camp." Manuel insists Harbaugh truly wants to spread football and its benefits to different areas, including Australia.
