Alabama, Tennessee commits highlight WR vs. DB battles at The Opening 2014

Of course Alabama has a standout commit on each side of the ball here.

Every year Nike's "The Opening" brings out almost all of the top high school seniors in the nation, in addition to a few elite juniors. Tuesday, top wide receivers and defensive backs took center stage in one-on-one drills.

Some of the most impressive performers on the offensive side of the ball were WR Pompano Beach (FL) Monarch Calvin Ridley (Alabama commit), Hampton (GA) Lovejoy WR Preston Williams (Tennessee commit), and Townson (MD Calvert Hall WR Lawrence Cager. On the defensive side of the football, Long Beach (CA) Poly CB Iman Marshall and Jersey City (NJ) St. Peters Prep CB Minkah Fitzpatrick (Alabama commit) stood out in the drills.

Ridley in particular has been a standout all week:
