With the backing of Nike, one of the premier recruiting camps each year is The Opening, which takes place in Beaverton, Oregon, at company headquarters. In 2014, the spotlight is brighter than ever, and several Pac-12 recruits will have a chance to raise their profile even higher as they move closer to becoming college athletes.
The lion's share of attention belongs to the quarterbacks, who will take part in their own competition called the "Elite 11" due to the naming of the top 11 signal-callers following the event.
This is the best chance for fans to get a look at the top high school quarterbacks participating in the same drills at the same time with the cameras rolling. There is no other time during the year where as much young talent gathers in the same place to test its skills.
But let's not forget about the other positions, because while the quarterbacks serve as the main course, everyone else will be putting their abilities up against the best of the best as well.
Here are five Pac-12 recruits we'll be watching closely at Nike's The Opening.
