It depends on what you are selling. Clemson sells family and overall development as a student, an athlete and person. Ohio State and Alabama sell their ability to put you in the NFL. So, in keeping with that emphasis, it is reasonable for them to do that during "camp."

Are they promising these recruits that they will help them improve on these combine drills by such and such percent before leaving OhioSt, or is this the weed out process because they offer too many recruits each year?

I don’t get it. Do they actually practice football techniques? It seems like the players wouldn’t be too enthused by this “camp” if it’s just measurables, but they go along with it because they desire to get that Buckeye offer.

Yes, which is sad because there are some kids that will never play college football that could benefit from the instruction Clemson offers from college football coaches that will help them be better high school players.

People forget these camps are not all about the recruits. There are more regular campers than prospects.

I disagree. There might be a lot of campers that go to these camps, but these camps are all about the prospects. My daughter attended a volleyball camp at Clemson and she was very disappointed. It was obvious the camp was being used as a way to recruit prospects rather than to teach all of the girls how to play volleyball. Other parents have had the same experience at other universities. Overall, Clemson might do it better than other universities, but most universities use camps as a way to recruit prospects.
