Massington earns invite to The Opening
By Erik McKinney
It has been an exciting few days for wide receiver Eldridge Massington (Mesquite, Tex./West Mesquite). After earning an offer from USC and committing to the Trojans late last week, Massington received an invitation to Nike's The Opening Monday evening.
Massington is the 63rd player added to the event and he joins cornerback Chris Hawkins (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Rancho Cucamonga) as USC commits who will be on hand in Beaverton, Ore. from July 5-8.
Hawkins and Massington will certainly brush up on their recruiting pitches during the event, as at least two dozen players scheduled to attend already hold USC offers.
That list includes linebacker Reuben Foster (Auburn, Ala./Auburn), cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III (Tampa/Wharton), defensive end Carl Lawson (Alpharetta, Ga./Milton), offensive tackle Shamire Devine (East Point, Ga./Tri Cities), defensive end Joe Mathis (Upland, Calif./Upland) and safeties Tahaan Goodman (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif./Rancho Cucamonga), Priest Willis (Tempe, Ariz./Marcos De Niza), Leon McQuay III (Seffner, Fla./Armwood) and Marcell Harris (Orlando/Dr. Phillips).
