Charlie Strong heading to Dallas and Houston for his first satellite camps

Posted May 13th, 2016


Charlie Strong, who said he is ready to “jump in the middle” of the satellite camp rush, will make his first splash on consecutive days next month in Houston and the Dallas area.

On June 16, Strong and his Texas coaching staff will hit the road to headline a camp at Houston Baptist. The following day, they’ll be at Greenhill School in Addison for a camp put on by Dallas Showtyme.

The Greenhill visit comes three days after another Showtyme camp at the school featuring Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh and Iowa State’s Matt Campbell.


These are the first confirmed camp stops for Strong and his crew, who by returning to Houston and Dallas are milking areas that together filled out roughly half of the team’s 24-player recruiting class this year.

At this point, few details have been made public on the Houston Baptist camp.

The Showtyme camp is open to rising 11th and 12th graders and is capped at 300 campers. Cost is $40 for two hours, which is $10 less than the three-hour Harbaugh/Campbell camp.

Earlier this week, a UT spokesman said “we may have coaches” at the South Mind Sound Body camp from June 6-7 in Missouri City. Regardless, Strong will not be part of any UT traveling party.
