There might be only two PSU commits at The Opening, which kicks off 7 p.m. ET on July 1 (ESPNU), but that doesn't mean there are only two reasons for PSU fans to follow the events.

Here are four storylines to keep an eye on:

1. De'Andre Thompkins and Troy Vincent Jr. representing Penn State on the same team. The two commits will flash their skills on Team Vapor Carbon. Both are listed as athletes by ESPN, but both will play at the positions PSU recruited them for -- Thompkins at wideout and Vincent Jr. at cornerback. This will be the first time most PSU fans will get a glimpse of the four-star commits, and it'll be especially interesting to see what Thompkins can do against elite competition. He's ranked as the 54th-best high school player in the country, and he's the highest-ranked B1G commit at The Opening.
