Day Three: Top 10 Offensive Skilled Performers at The Opening.

Braxton Berrios | WR | 5-10/180 | Leesville Road (NC)

Quick Hit: Berrios was very productive on day three. He got open consistently, he caught everything thrown his way, he showed very good quickness in and out of his breaks. Clemson, Kentucky, South Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia are his favorites.

Justin Brent | WR | 6-2/197 | Speedway (IN)

Quick Hit: Brent is a natural receiver that is fluid and he adjusts to the ball well. He knows how to use his body to shield defenders and he really separates well from coverage. He is a little faster than looks. Brent is committed to Notre Dame.

Malachi Dupre | WR | 6-3/186 | John Curtis Christian (LA)

Quick Hit: Dupre showed the speed, length, and hands that make his one of the top wideouts in the country, but he has more than those strengths. He showed great flexibility despite his long frame - He can scoop the ball from off the ground of go up to get the high one. Arkansas, Florida State, LSU, and UCLA are some schools to watch.

Royce Freeman | RB | 6-1/220 | Imperial (CA)

Quick Hit: Freeman is a big back with deceptive speed. He made plays today that you don't usually see a 227-pound back make. He showed very good hands out of the backfield. Florida, Oregon, and USC are his top three schools.

Will Grier | QB | 6-3/181 | Davidson Day (NC)

Quick Hit: Grier showed great velocity on day three as he did on day two. He showed that he could fit the ball into tight windows when needed and stay patient while surveying the field. He is committed to Florida.

Ermon Lane | WR | 6-2/196 | Homestead (FL)

Quick Hit: Lane played big on day three. He caught the ball in traffic, he showed very strong hands, and he helped his team surprise the top seed in game one. He high-pointed the ball well and flashed that 4.5 speed as well. Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Miami, and a few other schools are involved.

Joe Mixon | RB | 6-1/209 | Freedom (CA)

Quick Hit: Mixon has showed his talents all week. He is a five-star running back on Scout, but he has played a lot of receiver at The Opening. He made a couple of impressive catches on day three and he showed speed and consistent hands. .

Jacob Park | QB | 6-4/206 | Stratford (SC)

Quick Hit: Park showed a lot of velocity today. His ball came out hot and it was always a tight spiral. He really stepped into his throws and drove the ball down the field. He is committed to Georgia.

Derrell Scott | RB | 5-11/184 | Havelock (NC)

Quick Hit: Scott is very quick and elusive and he showed that today. When he got the ball in space, he made guys miss, and made things happen. He caught the ball very well too. South Carolina may be the leader here.

De'Andre Thompkins | WR | 5-11/176 | Swansboro (NC)

Quick Hit: Thompkins is a Penn State commitment and he will be fast in Happy Valley. He was even quicker than expected today. His overall speed was exceptional and when he had to slow down to catch a pass, he then quickly pulled back away.
