What to watch during session one

The Dabo Swinney Football Camp kicks off on Monday afternoon and there will be plenty of storylines to follow throughout the week.

Session one begins on Monday afternoon at 2:30 with the second workout of the day set to start at 6:45 that evening. Here are a few that will be keeping up with at CUTigers.comover the first three days of camp.

Which stars show up?


Four-star guard Zack Bailey is confirmed as a session one visitor, so are the first three offensive line commitments, Jake Fruhmorgen, Noah Green and Mitch Hyatt, are scheduled to be there during Bailey's visit.

Odds are the Clemson coaching staff will count on that trio to be in Bailey's ear on Monday and Tuesday.

Wide receiver commitment Deon Cain will be in town along with his good buddy Ray Ray McCloud and the rest of the prospects with the Unsigned Preps group will be in town by Tuesday. McCloud visited Clemson last summer on the Unsigned Preps bus tour and picked up his offer shortly after a strong workout at defensive back.

McCloud and Bailey are among the top 2015 targets that are scheduled to visit during the first session. Roquan Smith, the four-star middle linebacker from Georgia's Macon County High School, is considering a return to Tigertown after visiting Clemson for the spring game. His teammate, 2016 defensive tackle Malik Walker, who also has a Clemson offer, will arrive on Tuesday.

Smith and Walker are coached by former Clemson defensive back Roy Walker, who's an assistant at Macon County.

From the 2016 class, there's a chance that four-star cornerback John Broussard [Central High School in Phenix City, Alabama] makes an appearance. His classmate, defensive end/outside linebacker Walter Pritchett, will arrive on Monday night and workout on Tuesday.

And, of course, there's always the chance of a surprise guest or two. But, as it stands right now, the second session looks to be the stronger of the two.

Looking for the Clemson offer


From this perspective, keeping up with the new Clemson offers is always among the most exciting storylines to track.


Could Moore be the first commitment for Clemson's 2016 class?
Ballou High School [Washington, D.C.] 2016 wide receiver Delontae Moore received his Clemson offer after a strong showing last year. He'll be back again on Monday with several of his teammates, including Marquis Hamilton, a 2016 running back/defensive back who's nicknamed ‘Boobie Miles'. A strong showing from Hamilton could net him an offer from Clemson. He certainly looks good on film.

Mike Williams' former high school teammate at Lake Marion, 2016 cornerback James Valdez, will make his Clemson camp return. South Carolina, UNC and N.C. State have offered. He's more than ready to go and pick one up from Clemson, too.

Hanahan wide receiver Samuel Denmark was the second-fastest man in the AAA 100-meter state championship race during the spring. A few days later, Notre Dame said an offer could be on the way. The Clemson coaches might feel obligated to pull the trigger once his three-day visit concludes on Wednesday.

Who competes?


Offered prospects tend to sit out the workouts during their camp visits. The guys who arrive to camp as Clemson commitments usually participate in a workout or two before taking some time off to relax and enjoy the royal treatment.

It's always nice to see the committed prospects workout, it provides more opportunities to analyze and predict what to expect out of those guys when they get to Clemson for good. In addition to the Tiger pledges mentioned above, Kaleb Chalmers is also expected to be around.

Wouldn't it be nice to see him and Cain compete against one another during 1-on-1s and pass skele drills?

And there are probably even a few people who would get a kick out of watching Fruhmorgen, Green and Hyatt working side-by-side individual position periods.

This is only the beginning of what should be yet another long week at the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
