Ten invitations to Nike's The Opening Finals were extended following Sunday's regional camp in Los Angeles, matching the number of invites that went out at last year's camp. A record five linebackers from one camp were selected, as USC commits Raymond Scott --also the linebacker MVP -- and Palaie Gaoteote were joined by Solomon Tuliaupupu, Merlin Robertson and Jack Lamb. Defensive backs Bryan Addison and Olaijah Griffin, wide receivers Amon-Ra St. Brown and Chase Cota and offensive linemen Justin Dedich round out the group. Quarterbacks Dorian Thompson-Robinson and Utah come Jack Tuttle were selected to the Elite 11 Finals.
Our Pac-12 writers highlight some things to watch this spring.
Garett Bolles followed up his lone season with the Utes with an impressive performance in Indianapolis.
It's not hard to understand why some Pac-12 teams start with soft schedules. And it's easy to grasp why the league is seen as rich in quarterbacks.
Utes running back Joe Williams is one. But off-field aspects upcoming in Indianapolis figure to be more important for him.
Coaches have their own way of unwinding in the offseason. For Utah coach Kyle Whittingham, it's skiing down the mountain at speeds of over 70 mph.
Utah is hoping that new offensive coordinator Troy Taylor can be the person to take the Utes' passing game from middling to explosive.
Nobody's perfect, so we consider which weaknesses could come back to haunt the teams of the Pac-12 South.
Utah is the only team in the Pac-12 South never to advance to the conference title game. If this is the year that changes, these games may matter most.
Colorado brings back Devin Ross and a deep receiving corps, but will that unit be enough to help the Buffs repeat as champs of a talented South?
With most of the Pac-12's coaching vacancies filled, here's a look at the arrivals and departures around the league.
Three coaches in the Pac-12 South have had remarkably parallel career ups and downs of late. Will their fortunes continue to shadow each other's?
Of the 27 high school QBs signed in the Pac-12 in 2013 and 2014, only four will (or are projected to) end their careers as the school's starter.

With eight players invited to the NFL combine, Utah is tied with USC for the most from the Pac-12. Here are the Utes that will be going: DB Brian Allen, OG Isaac Asiata, OT Garett Bolles, C J.J. Dielman, DL Pita Taumoepenu, OT Sam Tevi, RB Joe Williams and S Marcus Williams.
We revisit each current Pac-12 coach's best squad at any point in his head-coaching career, including Kyle Whittingham's undefeated 2008 Bama-beater.
Don't fret over teams that take in graduate transfer QBs because they're a good option; Utah has yet another offensive coordinator, so we'll see.
For the second year in a row, the Huskies have one of the easiest nonconference schedules. But no one in the Pac-12 has an easier slate than Colorado.
With signing day in the books, here's an updated look at how the Pac-12 Power Rankings will shake out in 2017. Did USC stay on top?
With three years of hindsight, we take a look at how the recruiting classes of 2014 in the Pac-12 measured up.
USC, Stanford, UCLA, Washington and Oregon hauled in top-25 recruiting classes. Colorado finished not too far behind.
USC stole the spotlight, but it wasn't the only Pac-12 power to ace national signing day. With six teams in the top 30, the Pac-12 made its presence felt on the recruiting trail.

One of the marquee names in Utah's incoming 2017 crop is 6-foot-7 offensive tackle Jordan Agasiva, a JC transfer who should help the Utes immediately replenish an offensive line that's losing four starters. The trenches have long been a strength of this program, and Utah hopes it's netted immediate-impact players to keep them strong.

Utah had a few spots to fill heading into signing day and picked up a terrific wide receiver in Bryan Thompson. The three-star receiver was previously committed to Boise State and also looked at Nebraska and Oregon.
