If you've followed recruiting over the last few years, you have no doubt heard of The Opening. Held annually at the Nike Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, it combines the Elite 11 quarterback finals with a 7-on-7 tournament for the top players in the country.

While WSU does not have any current commits headed to The Opening, there are plenty of targets who will be in attendance. Here are a few important links and a list of Cougar targets that are currently uncommitted and will be playing. Keep in mind that the ESPN channels will be covering the event on Thursday and Friday.

Here are the recruits by Opening Team. Ratings and offer lists via 247sports.com.
