The Opening

The Opening released its rosters for the finals at the end of the month, and as usual, one team is particularly Buckeye-heavy.

Team Backpack (the six teams are named after different emojis) features four Ohio State commits: four-star Jack Miller, five-star receiver Julian Fleming, four-star receiver Gee Scott Jr. and four-star safety Lejond Cavazos.

The roster also features a pair of Buckeye targets at running back: the nation's top running back Zachary Evans and four-star all-purpose back Jaylan Knighton.

Team Backpack is the most Buckeye-heavy team, but there are Ohio State commits and targets throughout the other rosters as well.

Ohio State's newest commitment, four-star cornerback Clark Phillips, joins Buckeye targets five-star running back Kendall Milton, four-star linebacker Cody Simon, four-star receiver KeAndre Lambert and recent Michigan commit and Ohio State four-star safety target Jordan Morant on Team Wave.

Team Battery features Buckeye targets in four-star safety target Lathan Ransom, four-star athlete Sam Adams II, four-star cornerback Henry Gray and 2021wideout Dekel Crowdus.

Team Money Bag includes four-star linebacker target Kourt Williams as well as four-star athlete DeaMonte Trayanum out of Akron.

In addition to the four seven-on-seven teams, five-star offensive line commit Paris Johnson Jr. and four-star 2021 offensive tackle target Donovan Jackson will be Frisco as well, on the Pancake team for all the offensive linemen.

Ohio State has a few big defensive line targets participating, in four-star defensive tackle Vernon Broughton, four-star defensive tackle Jacolbe Cowan and 2021 five-star defensive end Korey Freeman on Team Skull, for the defensive linemen.

Festivities kick off on Saturday with the Elite 11 quarterback competition, which will feature Ohio State commit Jack Miller. The Opening Finals will begin on Monday and go through Wednesday.
