Amongst the talented participants at the DCNFTC camp were two Maryland commits and a handful of high-major targets. Good Counsel's Keandre Jones and DeMatha Catholic's DJ Turner were the two commits who impressed at this past weekend's camp, earning invites to The Opening, Nike's elite recruiting event. Highly touted gunslinger Dwayne Haskins performed admirably at this past weekend's festivities. His performance warranted him a spot at The Opening and an invitation to the Elite 11 finals. The rest of the DMV standouts to earn at spot at The Opening can be found here. With plenty of news on the radar, let's get right to it.
