More than 500 high school football players attended Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh's satellite camp in Pearl on Wednesday.

Yes, Pearl, Mississippi, and Coach Khakis wore an Archie Manning New Orleans Saints jersey at the camp. No Wolverines maize-and-blue jersey. Instead, the black-and-gold in honor of the former Ole Miss quarterback who played for the Saints from 1971 to 1982.



Harbaugh led the players, including top college prospects, through drills on what is his month-long satellite camp tour.

Satellite camps like Harbaugh's are a controversial issue, with one side believing they are a great way to generate opportunities for college prospects and the other side saying they must be better regulated so coaches do not gain an edge in recruiting.

It seems there is no stopping Camp Harbaugh, though. The coach will wind up his  tour in Honolulu and American Samoa at month's end.
