The Opening, which now in its fourth year has grown into one of the country's top high school football events, is set to take place July 5-10 at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. It will be an intense week, and the pool of 162 players is filled with elite prospects and several sleeper recruits.
The stars will come into the event commanding all of the attention, but a few unknown commodities have a chance to steal the show. Some 3-star quarterbacks will have a platform to outshine several stud passers, while a 3-star offensive lineman could show he deserves to be ranked higher after a good performance.
Plus, an undersized defensive back is capable of holding his own versus some of the nation's top receivers.
