Camp film of 2022 prospect Julian Armella came out this week and caused a bit of an uproar on Twitter. People – including the camp organizer – were praising Armella, but as a coach, I think this is almost all terrible technique:

Armella’s a sophomore in high school, so he has time to learn. But somebody told him this is good – and he celebrates afterward – so it seems there’s a shortage of good guidance here. I haven’t talked about camps on this site for a while because I’ve focused less and less of my energy on them as the number of camps has exploded. But in general, I find them to be useless for big guys without pads. I do think 7-on-7 is useful, but it should be taken with a grain of salt.

Remember Isaiah Wilson, who eventually signed with Georgia over Michigan?
