The Opening is essentially the all-star event of summer football camps. Per SBNation:
In order to score an invite, recruits must qualify by attending and performing well in one of the numerous regional Nike recruiting camps throughout the spring. The first two days are QB-centric. The best signal-callers in the nation made the cut at the Elite 11 Finals in Los Angeles earlier this month. At The Opening, they receive more unique training. Click here for more.
This is quite an honor for Tuttle, who may end up being the highest touted QB recruit Utah has ever had. He’s been offered from numerous schools across the country, including USC and Alabama, and he’s staying strong with Utah. Stay tuned to Twitter, especially the @SBNRecruiting account, as they’ll be all over the event, since it isn’t going to be televised.
