One of the biggest events of the offseason took place for recruits at The Opening. More extensive coverage can be found at our SB Nation Recruiting page, but the main highlight for the Pac-12 had to be the outstanding look the USC recruits gave this weekend.
The main USC commit is Max Browne, who was considered the best quarterback at the camp by both our SB Nation and 247 Sports analysts. Fellow Trojan verbal Ty Isaac also performed well, although not as a running back. He spent most of his time as an inside receiver and proved he could go over the middle. As did wide receiver Steven Mitchell, who received rave reviews for how he performed in his production after the catch. Sebastian LaRue, Eldridge Massington, Justin Davis and Chris Hawkins all had excellent weekends as well.
In news that is slightly interesting but not really, LB Reuben Foster from Auburn, Alabama was at The Opening and ended up in Washington on an unofficial, but says he remains 100% committed to Alabama. Which I believe. Kids want to make trips. Five stars especially.
OL Nico Falah from Bellflower, CA is down to USC and UCLA.
OL Cameron Hunt from Corona, CA committed to Cal this weekend over schools like Arizona State and Washington. He's Cal's first offensive line commit, and he performed very well at the camp.
OL John Lopez from Orange, CA lists UCLA and Washington as his two favorites.
LB Isaac Savaiinaea from Honolulu, HI remains committed to Stanford, but still wants to visit other schools, including UCLA and Notre Dame.
DL Eddie Vanderdoes from Placer, CA was named defensive MVP of the event. He will visit USC, Oregon and Cal and counts USC as his favorite.
OL Scott Quessenberry from Encinitas, CA had Cal, Washington and UCLA among his top five, with the first two schools definitely in his top three.
