Beav commits draw praise at The Opening

ONCE A RECRUIT makes his decision, he can tend to move towards being out of sight, out of mind for many. That's not the case for Isaac Seumalo, the Oregon State offensive line commit who came back strong to tear up the scene at The Opening in Beaverton this past week.

With the Nike 7ON Championship becoming wildly popular the past few years, Nike introduced the first-ever "The Opening presented by NIKE Football," this year.

Nearly 150 of the top prospects in the 2012 class converged on the Nike Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, for a five-day summer football event this past week.

Corvallis (Ore.) guard Isaac Seumalo made excellent use of his time there.

He had such a good week that some were calling him the best offensive line prospect in attendance, according to's Jake Worthen.

Seumalo did struggle at the start, tasting defeat in his first three contests. But those were the only loses he had suffered this spring. And Seumalo recovered in his last faceoff and the Beaver commit is still one of the best in the west.

Wide receiver Malik Gilmore, another commit to Oregon State, had a solid outing in the event. But said that while he's solid to the Beavers, he still may take a trip or two this fall, though he's not sure where. Not exactly what Beaver fans hoped to hear.

On the fourth day, the defensive standouts on the day included Oregon State commit Cleveland Wallace, said's Brandon Huffman.

Wallace, a corner, showed excellent closing speed and the ability to break up passes.
