It would appear that LSU and in-state politicians have successfully kept Texas out of Louisiana for satellite camp participation -- for now, anyway. But there's collateral damage in LSU's motives, and it involves the recruits themselves.

Pete Thamel of Sports Illustrated took a deep dive into a satellite camp tug-of-war that put LSU and Louisiana politicians on one end, Texas on the other, and Belhaven University and coach Hal Mumme firmly in the middle.

According to Thamel's report, an initial satellite camp hosted by Belhaven at BREC Memorial Stadium in Baton Rouge was moved to Saint Thomas Aquinas High School in Hammond, Louisiana, as a result of political pressure.

However, that event was later cancelled -- again, with the help of in-state influence -- with Belhaven taking a $5,000 financial hit as a result.

"This marks the third announced camp in Louisiana that Texas was scheduled to take part in. And it's the third camp that LSU has worked hard behind the scenes to prevent from happening," Thamel reported.
