By all accounts, the turnout of those participating and their performance during the drills and workouts has never been better.
"It's the best attendance I've seen in the five years I've been here," said offensive guard Roman Fry, who earned second-team All-ACC honors last year. "We've kind of established the attitude of, ‘No Excuses. Be There.'
"Guys are getting bigger, stronger and faster every day. We're setting records in the weight room every day."
Fry, a senior is one of 54 college offensive and defensive linemen to be named to the Outland Trophy Preseason Watch List, said the exercises outside the weight room consist of seven-on-seven workouts and drills to help improve footwork and agility.
Coaches couldn't be much happier with the workouts.
Both sides of the ball have taken it upon themselves to make tremendous strides physically, especially those on defense and on the offensive line.
"We've got a chance to do a lot of great things," he said. "But it all starts with the workouts. The guys are taking it more seriously because we've got a lot of great senior leadership."
PROCTOR GOES TO CAMP: Clemson quarterback Will Proctor is headed this week to Louisiana, where he'll take part in the Manning Passing Academy, which is obviously put on by the most famous quarterbacking family in the history of college and pro football.
Proctor will take instructions from all of the Mannings, as well as various college and professional coaches, on how to be the best quarterback possible on and off the field.
This is on top of his workouts with other pro and college athletes in Orlando under the guidance of Tom Shaw, the speed and conditioning coach for the New England Patriots.
FRESHMEN REPORTING THIS WEEK: Most of the incoming freshmen, including 5-star running back C.J. Spiller are expected to be on campus this week to begin preparing for the start of the second summer session.
Orientation begins today while classes start on Friday.
