Update: Early news and notes on a few of the Lions top targets at the event.
Florham Park, N.J. – Hello from the New York Jets’ training facilities, where some of the Mid-Penn’s top players, like Harrisburg High end Micah Parsons and receiver Shaquon Anderson-Butts, Penn State commits Justin Shorter, Zack Kuntz, and Pat Freiermuth, and more than a few of the Lions’ biggest 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 targets are today.
They’re here to try and earn an invitation to The Opening, an elite summer high school football showcase held annually in Oregon, as the event’s group of coaches and evaluators continues its national tour to find the best players for the event.
Penn State already has one commit, five-star Woodbridge, Va., back Ricky Slade, set to attend it, and the names above plus some others will be vying to join him. Generally speaking, four to eight players are picked from each camp once it wraps up, and then more could be chosen once all the nationwide events are complete to fill out the rosters.
PennLive will be on hand along with reporters from across the region and nation, and their analysis will be flowing into the comment section of this post throughout the morning ad afternoon once the action begins. Then, check back later for photos, videos, features, and more from all of the assembled talent.
