Clemson is hoping for a commitment next week from Tarpon Springs, Fla. wide receiver Artavis Scott, a four-star prospect who'll announce his college choice during The Opening at the Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.

The Opening, which features top 2014 and 2015 prospects, begins on Monday and runs through Wednesday.

Clemson commitments Deshaun Watson and Chris Register are participating in the camp, which will be featured in a series of telecasts by ESPNU. Watson is also competing the Elite 11 finals, which are being held this weekend in conjunction with The Opening.

Scott, who most recently visited Clemson for Dabo Swinney's high school camp, is also considering Michigan, Florida, Florida State, Ohio State and Central Florida.

One of his teammates, offensive lineman Mason Cole, is committed to Michigan, and another, quarterback Pete DiNovo, was a 2013 UCF signee. Another teammate at East Lake High, wide receiver George Campbell, is being recruited by Clemson for its 2015 class.

In a story published today, the Orlando Sentinel speculates that Central Florida is Clemson's most serious competition for Scott, describing his decision as a 50-50 coin toss.

Despite missing much of his junior season with an ankle injury, Scott racked up 995 receiving yards and 10 touchdown receptions. He returned two kicks for touchdowns in East Lake's recent spring game.

Clemson currently has a dozen commitments for its 2014 recruiting class, including four-star wide receiver Demarre Kitt.
