There are a handful of big questions heading into The Opening. It begins next Tuesday in Beavertown, Oregon.
The state of Florida leads the way with 27 selections. There are 162 participants in all. Here are ten story lines from the Sunshine state leading into the event.
10. Just how explosive is Ray Ray McCloud
I have said quite often this spring and summer that Ray Ray McCloud is the most explosive player in the state of Florida. This Tampa Sickles standout is so fast and so electric with the ball in his hands. McCloud has breakaway home run speed but he can also break your ankles in the open field with his moves in space.
How will his game translate to The Opening?
I think he will have a chance to knock it out of the park. This is an ideal setting where he can showcase not just his speed but all his athletic and football skills. McCloud is a running back who likely projects highest as a slot receiver or even cornerback. He's listed as an athlete and could line up at all three positions at some point next week.
I will be real curious to see how he performs and I wonder where he will stack up against some of the country's most explosive talents.
