I guess I'm not really knowledgeable when it comes to what these camps consist of, such as who puts them on, whether they're more showcase vs instructional, etc.

reading reports of how this and that prospect performed at such and such a camp is that you are both correct.
it is prospects who be they seeking offers and or checking out the feel and instruction/coaching of the assistant coaches running the camp, going head up with other top and wanna be top recruites. They are both showcasing what they have, learning from the instruction and competion and showcasing to staff how they match up and how well they take and act on instruction. Seems both sides walk away better acquinted with the other and both have a better feel for how the prospects development, coachability ect. match up with other prospects present.
Seems a generally wise risk on the prospects part. he could be the one that demonstrates he doesn't match up as well but even that may come with a "yet" demonstrating his upside and how well he worked with the coaches and teammates. JMHO WVP

Saw an article on 247 about us possibly having a chance at flipping Tyrek Cole (CB currently committed to FSU). It's a VIP article so I don't have access, anyone care to summarize?

Chances are he won't end up at FSU, and he has a good relationship with Grady. Miami is most likely right now, but his OV here is going to be huge.

We took the gamble on Vic Hampton and it worked out. This kid is a higher upside version of Vic so I'd love to have him flip to us. If it weren't for us having already landed Fields, Cole flipping to us would have made him the crown jewel of our DB class. If he is the #2 DB in your class that is a special DB class.

Golden doesn't recruit thugs......maybe this kid just made a couple of mistakes.
We all have. I doubt he would be a negative....we've got way too many good kids to let one guy screw it up. Plus, if he did get him, we would absolutely have the best duo freshman CB in the country, bar none.

With the news on Wideman and Smalls this week....if you include them and Sawyer, that gives us 30. Adding Caban, Jones (maybe) and DB (maybe Cole) thats the absolute max at 33. The EE are now Lewis, Palmer Durant, Abernathy, Clark, Wideman, and Smalls...that's 7....if we get Jones that's 8 EE and gets us to 33. Without Jones, that's 32.

Golden is under a lot of pressure to win. What few fans they have are getting impatient. He could be slipping in his typical ways.

R any of our current committs, not amounst the above list, EE "maybes". Some one who either likely could EE should he choose but simply indicates he is choosing not too ( not missing on particular classes of import etc.) or someone who should he do this or that or should SC enrollment accept this or that on his transcript maybe could EE?

I haven't heard anyone else that is a likely EE candidate. But from my post above....since we already have 7 EE, that gets us to 32 which allows us to take Caban and a DB. If Jones comes, he is an EE so that makes the numbers work.
