July 1, 2017 David McKinney, Corey Bodden, Recruiting Reporters

Friday was the second open practice of the 2017 edition of Nike Football's The Opening Finals.

BGI was on the scene to watch the quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends practice, and posted several content items following practice, all of which are linked below.

Following practice, BGI released some thoughts and impressions from the session, which can be read HERE.

Coconut Creek (Fla.) North Broward Prep wide receiver Kevin Austin has impressed early on at the event, and BGI filmed nearly every rep he took on Friday, which can bee seen in the video below.

Following practice, BGI caught up with four-star receiver Tommy Bush, who is contemplating taking an official visit to Notre Dame during the 2017 season.

A full interview with Bush can be seen in the video below.

Austin and Bush are both top targets at wide receiver for Notre Dame, and BGI was able to collect some nuggets on both regarding their Irish recruitments. You can read Friday's Shamrock Secrets HERE.

Lindenhurst (N.Y) Senior four-star tight end Jeremy Ruckert also spoke with BGI following Friday's practice.

Ruckert, the No. 8 tight end in the class of 2018 and No. 209 overall player in the country, has the Irish in his top group and has a strong relationship with tight ends coach Chip Long.

Check out the full interview with Ruckert in the video below.
