Two members of Ohio State's 2017 recruiting class will be headed out to Oregon this summer to take part in The Opening, as outside linebacker Isaiah Pryor and cornerback Marcus Williamson both earned their invitations to the prestigious event on Sunday while participating in the regional camp in Orlando, FL.
They are part of the first group of 2017 recruits to have earned invitations to the camp, and are therefore the first members of Ohio State's 2017 recruiting class to have made the cut.
Both Pryor and Williamson are four star players according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Pryor (IMG Academy, Fl.) is currently the third-ranked outside linebacker in the country, while Williamson is the tenth-ranked cornerback. Both are also ranked inside the 247Sports Composite top-100 prospects in the 2017 class.

Isaiah Pryor committed to the Buckeyes last summer, and has since picked up an LSU offer.
Marcus Williamson committed to Ohio State back in April of 2015, but that hasn't stopped other big schools such as Notre Dame and LSU from offering him since. He did a great job on Sunday in Orlando showing off what he can do from the corner position, especially on this play when he was in coverage against four-star receiver, Trey Blount.
Williamson was also named the defensive back MVP of the camp.
