ADDISON, Ill. -- Seven 2014 prospects earned invitations to The Opening on Sunday at the Chicago Nike Football Training Camp, but there were plenty of 2015 and 2016 players who also played at a high level.

1. 2015 DE Jashon Cornell
6-foot-4, 230 pounds
St. Paul (Minn.) Cretin-Durham Hall

Notable offers: Notre Dame, Florida, Cal, Ohio State, USC, Wisconsin

What we learned: Cornell is a long, lanky player with a lot of speed and quickness. For a 6-foot-4 kid, he has really good hips and agility, but he needs to add weight. However, he looked solid in the one-on-ones and showed why he has a big offer list already and why schools such as Michigan, Michigan State and Arkansas are also showing heavy interest.

"I'm looking for a college that has a great business program," Cornell said of what he wants in a school.
