Da'Shawn Hand has earned his second invite to The Opening. 

Drake Harris has also has an invite this year. I tried to find who else has earned an invite but couldn't find anything.

Hand quote on Peppers after watching his film:
"He's a freak. Oh my goodness, he's a competitor."

Go Blue!

Edit: Ian Bunting has also been invited.

I mean the guy is one of those 'physical marvels'. I have a hard time believing he really had to work too hard to get this invite. (Not to down play how hard he does work, just suggesting that when you're the #1 player in the country, you're going to get an invite)

That he still had to go to SPARQ camps and quallify. His "freak-ness" if you will probably makes it easier for him to succeed, but he wanted to be one of the 1st players to get a second invite. All the time and effort in traveling for a feat he's already accomplished just to prove he's done it better, is part of passion and work ethic to me.

I think there will be fewer, partly because it will be a smaller recruiting class. Adoree' Jackson and Artavis Scott are both going, and they're possible additions to the class. Drake Harris and Ian Bunting have already been invited.  Da'Shawn Hand got an invitation.  That's 5 right there who are committed or may commit.  I wouldn't be surprised if Mason Cole, Michael Ferns, and/or Bryan Mone got invited.

Don't forget Montae Nicholson from Michigan also got an invite - he is a possible future commit. He is being recruited as a safety, went to the Columbus camp, and got an MVP award - as a WR! That shows the athleticism of this kid. I think he is on par with Westphal, Smith, Jackson and would be a great addition to the class.

Also - I agree - I think an invite for Ferns is coming, as he had a big day in c-bus.
