This is how the thread will work. During the camp, I will edit this original post with updates as they come in. Expect plenty of action over the next couple of days.

Friday, July 15th is supposed to be for the underclassmen in high school (9th and 10th) grade. Registration for tomorrow begins at 11 a.m. and the camp will run from 1-3 p.m.

Here are a few essentials to get you ready for the weekend.

Let's get to work.

Live Updates


10:46 p.m Thursday: The first interesting tidbit I've heard is that Miami coaches are really pushing to get all the prospects down here for multiple days as possible. For example, a large percentage of the upperclassmen who will compete on Saturday will still be in attendance for Friday's underclassmen camp. The staff has stuff planned for the older guys and really just want them together as a group for as long as possible. Also, don't be surprised to see a handful of 2019 prospects compete on Saturday with the older guys.

7:58 a.m. Friday: Gino Torretta just confirmed to me that he will be a guest coach on Saturday night.

8:28 a.m. - Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson will be in attendance this weekend, according to a source.

Good news: It's not predicted to rain the next two days. Fingers crossed.
Would enjoy some pictures of the savages as they hold up the "U".
Looking like it'll clear up shortly, but the rain is coming down pretty hard right now.

Made a couple updates this morning. Also, it's not raining on campus right now. Forecast shows it should be clear this afternoon
I take back everything i said about paradise camp. This staff is on a whole different level. *bow*
I want to see how Njoku performs in 1on1 against south Florida talent. I hope Shawn Davis gives us a look also. Wilson looks like a lock to UF right now.
Man I hope this camp doesn't have TOO many prospects where someone will whine and say they aren't getting attention. I think it was a camp uga had last year where a rb who came to visit said they didn't even get to talk to the coaches. I think it was fils aime
