The Times to follow USC, UCLA commits and local talent at The Opening

The Times will be there to track The Opening, a showcase for 166 elite high school prospects invited to participate this week at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.

The five-day event includes a quarterback competition, combine, seven-on-seven tournament and lineman challenge. Players were invited based on performances at Nike Football regional camps.

Five of the players participating have committed to USC’s 2016 recruiting class and two have committed to UCLA. Nearly 20 of the participants are from Southland high schools.

The Times will follow the experience of La Puente Bishop Amat receiver Trevon Sidney throughout the event. Sidney is scheduled to announce his college commitment Friday and UCLA and USC are among his options.

Video highlights, interviews and recruiting updates on USC and UCLA prospects will also be published on the USC and UCLA Now blogs.

See you next time from The Opening.
