Get ready to write about jaden hunter. He might do lb and d end drills with freshmen and sophomores but I bet he gets pulled to the big boys. Will muschamp and there d line coach loved him coach Grantham offered him at the Louisville camp and Indiana offered during spring practice. The d end coach at Florida who coached clwoney at south Carolina loved him. They almost offered him andprobably will soon. Brother plays at FSU dad and mom played at uga. Pruitt knows his family BC he recruited Tyler to FSU to play safety. Tyler wanted a uga offer but they did not give him one even though he was a four star safety out of lowndes and his parents were alumni.

I'd pay 40 bucks to go to a UGA football camp. I don't think my body would like it, though.

@Vampire_Bill  If you do your research, just about every SEC school charges $40 for participants in different camps.  For example, Auburn is hosting a rising junior camp next weekend.  The cost- $40.  Just like the other camps they have hosted this summer.

@Vampire_Bill  Funny, I was about to comment on how cheap that was for a two-day camp. They're summer volleyball camps are $90.

@Vampire_Bill That's very disappointing, if true. Maybe the NCAA made them raise the price? I've asked for a comment from UGA

MC....just ask for the expense breakdown.

Costs are rising...lawsuits are heading towards paying players. The end of college football is near. Lol

Seriously though, when it comes to other camps for non - revenue sports, costs are sometimes higher as a way to supplement coaches incomes. Most of the times, I believe, it is in their contracts. They don't all get paid like football and basketball coaches. Certainly not the assistants of the other sports.

Baseball camps far more. 40 is a good price. If you want to bring the "millions' number then all camps free? Other schools camps free?
