Good news for SEC teams at Opening
By Chris Low
ESPN's Recruiting Nation ranked the top 10 performers following Tuesday's festivities at The Opening, and there were several players either committed to SEC schools or strongly considering SEC schools who made that list.
The No. 3 performer was ESPN's top-ranked offensive tackle in the country -- Cameron Robinson of West Monroe, La. The 6-6, 325-pound Robinson has Alabama and LSU at the top of his list.
Georgia quarterback commitment Jacob Park was No. 4. Park, who's from Goose Creek, S.C., has been extremely accurate all week.
One of the fastest rising prospects at The Opening has been quarterback Sean White of Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He has visits upcoming to both Auburn and South Carolina.
Florida fans will be stoked about top receiver prospect Ermon Lane of Homestead, Fla., doing the Gator chomp after making a leaping touchdown catch. Lane is ranked by ESPN as the No. 1 receiver in the country and also has Alabama, Florida State and Miami on his list.
Alabama offensive guard commitment Viane Talamaivao of Corona, Calif., showed his muscle in the trenches and checked in at No. 9.
Alabama and Florida are trying to beat out Michigan for defensive end Da'Shawn Hand of Woodbridge, Va., and Hand didn't disappoint in the one-on-one drills. He was No. 8 on the list.
