The soap opera that is recruiting tends to hit its peak around National Signing Day, but the groundwork for the fireworks is set during the dog days of summer.

Prospect camps are ingrained in the fabric of recruiting, often setting the stage for dramatic arrivals, breakout performers and major developments that define a recruitment. This has been the case for more than a decade now, which is where On The Bench’s Camp Memories series begins.

The first episode in the series features Newberg along with two veterans of the scouting world and FSU recruiting camps: Charles Fishbein of Elite Scouting Services and Dwyer High head coach McKinley Rolle. The three discuss the origins of the Seminoles Showtime camps and how they helped create buzz at FSU, and how Jimbo Fisher changed the camp tactics after he took over as head coach. This is a must-listen for fans of FSU recruiting.
