Nike Football Training Camp Orlando: Live NFTC recruiting updates

SB Nation will provide live recruiting updates and analysis in the comments section.

The first of two Nike Football Training Camp tour stops kicks off Saturday morning in Orlando from Austin Tindall Park. 300 of the state's top prospects will be in attendance, trying to earn an invite to Nike's The Opening in Oregon later this summer. The competition portion of the event takes place between 11 and 2 EST.

Unlike the Elite 11 Orlando, which was sorely lacking in elite talent, this appears to be a loaded group.

Orlando (Fla.) Timber Creek running back Jacques Patrick is one of the best in the country and holds almost all of the major offers. I'll be looking to see how he does in agility drills and in catching the football, since he is about 6'2, 210 or so.

Tampa (Fla.) East Lake's George Campbell will be looking to demonstrate improved hands and better jump ball skills from the receiver position. There is no doubt that Campbell is a freakish athlete, but he is not a dominant or natural receiver at this point. Less heralded Deon Cain, of Tampa Bay Tech, will try and prove he is the state's best at receiver.

Offensive tackles Martez Ivey, of Apopka, and Abdul Bello, of Montverde (Fla.) Academy, will look to show they are the state's most athletic offensive tackle. Both have offers from most of the major schools in the Southeast. Christian Pellage, of Brooksville (Fla.) Nature Coast, will be looking to show he belongs in the conversation as well.

CeCe Jefferson, of Baker County (Fla.), will look to show that he is the best defensive end in the state, but Seffner (Fla.) Armwood's Byron Cowart will also have something to say. Both are among the best at their positions nationally.

It's important to remember that camps are good for evaluating skills, but not so much for evaluating the total football player. Football is played in pads and is a collision sport. Camps are done in shorts and cannot replace actually evaluating football played in pads.

More stars will surely emerge Saturday. Below is the expected list of participants provided by Nike.
