LSU coach Les Miles said his program will participate in several satellite camps this summer and host its own camps where it'll invite other Louisiana programs to attend -- with one exception.

Miles, appearing on "Culotta and the Prince" on 104.5 FM ESPN in Baton Rouge on Friday morning, said every camp LSU hosts will be open to other in-state schools, such as UL-Monroe and UL-Lafayette, unless a school already has plans to partner with out-of-state schools for camps.

On Thursday, first-year Tulane coach Willie Fritz announced the Green Wave will host camps "featuring Texas A&M coaches" this summer.

"There'll be that school that would not attend if they partner with an outside state school," Miles said, though not specifically mentioning the Wave. "Then we're certainly not going to allow them to attend."

Miles and his coaching staff will take part in an event called the East Houston Elite Football Showcase, June 13-14 at Galena Park ISD Stadium in Galena Park, Texas. LSU’s coaches are scheduled to be on hand June 14. Coaches from Michigan and Baylor are slated to be there June 13. Safety Eric Monroe, a 2016 LSU football signee from Houston North Shore, played his high school games at Galena Park.

"We want to serve this state," Miles said.

LSU will host satellite camps in New Orleans in conjunction with the Saints and in Shreveport, Miles said. The Houston area is one of several out-of-state cities where LSU coaches are expected to participate in camps.

The Tigers will also attend a camp in Dallas, Miles said.

The NCAA banned satellite camps earlier this year but recently reversed that decision. SEC schools will be allowed to participate in them starting May 30.

Miles said the first camp LSU will attend will be June 2 at Freedom Field in Bossier City.
