The Opening Preview: Southeast

The biggest recruiting event of the year -- The Opening -- will take place in Oregon next week. Here are the UCLA prospects from the Southwest that will participate...

Many of the top prospects in America will be in Oregon June 30-July 3 for The Opening and almost half of those attending will come from the southeast.

Here are the prospect from the region that are UCLA prospects:


Rashaan Evans | DE | Auburn (Ala.)
The Skinny: Evans is an elite pass rusher off the edge. He has great anticipation, he gets to the quarterback in a hurry, and he is explosive. Auburn University is just down the road from his home and they will be tough to beat in the end, but he recently named Georgia and UCLA as his top two schools.


Corey Holmes | WR | Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas
The Skinny: This speedy, big play wide receiver from STA has offers from across the country. He loves Notre Dame and Michigan but also wants to see UCLA and possibly some others before his decision.


Mattrell McGraw | S | River Ridge (La.) John Curtis Christian
The Skinny: McGraw will enter The Opening with a top eight, but he plans to cut that list in half while in Oregon. Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona State, Florida State, Ohio State, Oregon, UCLA, and USC are his current favorites. McGraw is a safety who could help at nickel back on the next level.


Christian Miller | OLB | Columbia (S.C.) Spring Valley
The Skinny: Miller committed to Florida early in the process, but has since backed off that decision. Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and UCLA look to be the major contenders right now with Tennessee in the mix as well.


Quincy Wilson | S | Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) University School
The Skinny: Wilson is a talented defensive back with three dozen plus offers. He has had a busy summer visiting schools like Ohio State and Notre Dame. He will be seeing USC and UCLA before The Opening and camping with Alabama and LSU next month. Yeah, he's open.
