News & Notes: Eastside Catholic’s Gee Scott Jr., Sam Adams II take center stage at The Opening

The end of high school football team camps marks the beginning of July, which for many future college football hopefuls, is the biggest recruiting month of the year.

For some of the top recruits in the state, it’s a chance to show up on the national stage. Eastside Catholic’s Gee Scott Jr. and Sam Adams II spent the week at Dallas’ AT&T Stadium competing at The Opening, a recruiting showcase featuring the top recruits in the country.

Scott Jr, a wide receiver committed to Ohio State, and Adams II, an uncommitted running back, are the second and third-ranked recruits in the state of Washington’s 2020 class, according to recruiting site 247 Sports.

Both received publicity and praise on social media, particularly Scott Jr., who was a part of the winning 7-on-7 team. He also had an impressive one-handed catch.

But for recruits, The Opening is more than just a place to show off their individual skills. A story by Joe Hoyt of The Dallas Morning News details how it’s the best place for players to recruit fellow prospects.

The story highlights this week’s News & Notes, which features news tidbits from around the state of Washington, and items relating to high school sports around the country.
