Summertime is full of months where recruits have busy schedules. Visits, camps and workouts are hard to balance as players approach the next season in high school football or their new destination in the collegiate ranks.

The Opening, one of the summer's biggest camps, is set to be held July 7-10. In preparation for The Opening, regionals are being conducted nationwide through June 14.

This past weekend one of those regionals was held in Charlotte, North Carolina where some of the regions premier athletes were able to showcase their abilities.

2016 4-star South Caldwell High guard Landon Dickerson (Hudson, N.C.) was in Charlotte for the event and spoke with CUTigers after his performance earned him and invitation to The Opening in a couple of months.

"It really means a lot to me to get the invite to The Opening - just to know all the hard work I have put in is paying off," said Dickerson. "I went into it just wanting to do my best and show my abilities."

Dickerson saw some good competition at the regional but knows he'll see a whole new kind of talent when he heads to Beaverton, Oregon for The Opening Finals in July.

"Getting invited to the final was the big part for me," explained Dickerson. "Seeing the competition that I will be playing with at the next level I think is going to open my eyes."

Dickerson has yet to name an official list of top schools, but he sure is hearing from a number of top schools around the southeast. Dickerson holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Georgia Tech, NC State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia Tech and more.

"Recruiting is going strong. I'm hearing a lot from numerous schools, and my list is still open. I will probably narrow it down over the summer," explained Dickerson.

With regards to Clemson, Dickerson spoke of the Clemson coaching staff saying, "I still stay in contact with them. I talk to Coach [Robbie] Caldwell and Coach [Dan] Brooks. They like my attitude and aggressiveness in the football field."

Dickerson measures in at 6-foot-4, 305 pounds. He is rated as the No. 7 guard in the nation and as the No. 1 guard in North Carolina according to Scout.
