The nation's top 2015 prospect Martez Ivey will be on hand to show why he's the best in the country. The five-star offensive lineman of Apopka (Fla.) stands 6-foot-5, 281-pounds, and he's got a full beard. Ivey is dominant on the line and has his pick of colleges. Florida, Alabama, and Auburn are in good position with Ivey early.
Jake Fruhmorgen holds twenty-plus offers and has all the big ones on the list. Fellow four-star Christian Pellage of Brooksville (Fla.) Nature Coast also has more offers than he can keep up with. Bradenton (Fla.) IMG standout Tyree St. Louis will be on hand, as should Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby's Brendan Loftus, and Winter Haven (Fla.) standout Mike Arnold.
Abdul Bello is a guy that's new to football, but he's burst onto the recruiting scene. The Montverde (Fla.) Montverde Academy athlete is originally from Nigeria and he's been picking up the game pretty quickly. Bellos has offers from Alabama, Florida State, Florida, Miami, Georgia, and more.
Wide Receivers / Tight Ends
The list of talented receivers on the roster is long and deep. Five-star receiver George Campbell will be working on earning his second invite to The Opening. The former Michigan commit is now back on the market and plenty of big-time programs are after his skills.

Jacques Patrick is a running back who's recruitment got started in his freshman year. The four-star athlete of Orlando (Fla.)
