Parents rave about why Clemson's camp one of the best

Dabo Swinney’s annual summer football camps are in full swing at Clemson University and with the camp attracting rising stars like coveted 2023 quarterback recruit Arch Manning amongst many other 4 and 5-star recruits across the country, many wonder what makes Clemson’s camp so special.

For parent and Clemson Alumni Robert McCardle, whose son, Trey, is a 2022 QB recruit from AC Flora High School, the difference is in the training-style sessions that Clemson focuses on rather than the usual combine-style camps put on by other universities.

“The facilities of course are phenomenal, but you go to lots of these camps, and they do 40 [meter] times, height, and weight and all the different stuff and it takes up half the time of the camp,” McCardle told TCI.
