Campers picking up Ohio State Offers

It helps in weighing talent and potential but more importantly I think it helps the school decide if the young man would fit in to the program. You might be an incredible talent but if you don't fit the schools style of football the staff won't offer you a scholarship.

Writer’s Q&A: How important are summer camps in evaluating high school talent for college scholarship offers?

Bill Smith: 0 value. Many colleges make the same mistake that the NFL does. It looks at measurables as more important than what you see on tape. The only way that measurables should be considered is to break a tie between two equally proficient candidates.

Pete Quint: It helps in weighing talent and potential but more importantly I think it helps the school decide if the young man would fit in to the program. You might be an incredible talent but if you don't fit the schools style of football the staff won't offer you a scholarship.

Eric Geier: I think they are very important. It is the first chance coaches have to see which players they will watch and which players they won't. Regardless, the kids in the camps are giving it everything they have to get noticed.

Ryan Leonardo: I would say very important.  It shows if the player is committed to make it through rigorous training in sweltering heat.  That says a lot about your character and motivation to get better.

Steve Patterson: Ohio State puts a lot of weight on camp performance. I think if you combine an athlete’s film, his ability to make grades, his physical ability, his level of maturity and his camp performance you get a really good ideal of how well they’ll do at a major program like Ohio State. Two players have already picked up offers and accepted this summer at camp including Dominic Clarke and Adam Bellamy.
