Some of the best football prospects in the Midwest flocked to Canton, Ohio, and Chicago for this region's Under Armour All-America Camp and Nike's The Opening. College coaches couldn't attend these events in person, but they will certainly pay attention to who did what.

Many Iowa and Iowa State recruits and targets took the field. Here are some that especially stood out:

The Opening

Hawkeye tight end recruit Logan Lee (Orion, Illinois) was one of 247Sports' best players on offense at The Opening regional in Canton. National analyst Steve Wiltfong said Lee dominated 1-on-1 blocking drills and had success despite receiving the "Gronk treatment" from defensive backs in 1-on-1 battles. The 247Sports Composite gives Lee three stars and ranks him the No. 18 tight end in 2019.

A 2020 offensive guard target for both schools, Justin Rogers (Oak Park, Michigan) was another of 247Sports' best offensive players in Canton. He became a standout prospect as soon as he handled 247Sports' No. 1 recruit, Zach Harrison, in a 1-on-1 drill, Wiltfong wrote. The 247Sports Composite gives him four stars. Ohio State and Georgia are thought to be the early favorites.

Also, this guy doesn't hold any offers currently ...  but Cedar Rapids Prairie 2020 wide receiver Jace Andregg scored an eye-popping 125.19 football rating at The Opening regional in Canton. That was the best rating of the regional. For comparison, former Iowa City West star and current Michigan receiver Oliver Martin scored a 133.02 — after his junior year. Andregg stands 6-2 and checks in at 185 pounds. He'll be an in-state prospect to watch.

Under Armour All-America Camp

Iowa State receiver target Cameron Coleman (St. Louis) was one of our good friend Allen Trieu's offensive standouts at the Under Armour All-America Camp in Chicago. Trieu wrote that Coleman was particularly impressive with his route-running and strength. The 247Sports Composite gives Coleman four stars and ranks him the No. 34 receiver in 2019.

Iowa State receiver target Marcus Washington (St. Louis) was another offensive star from Chicago. This guy is pretty much going to be a star wherever he goes. The 247Sports Composite gives Washington four stars and ranks him the No. 9 receiver in 2019. Iowa State made his top 10, along with Alabama, Florida State, Missouri, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Texas and USC. Illinois is thought to be a contender, too. He told 247Sports he's ready to trim his list in half next week.

Iowa defensive end target Marcus Hicks (Wichita, Kansas) was one of Trieu's defensive standouts in Chicago. Trieu pointed out that Hicks has added weight while maintaining great speed. The 247Sports Composite gives Hicks four stars and ranks him the No. 20 weak-side defensive end.

Iowa State 2020 defensive back target Andre Seldon (Belleville, Michigan) also made the cut for Chicago's top defensive prospects. Trieu wrote that he doesn't recall Seldon allowing one completion. With the kind of competition he played against, especially as a sophomore, that's quite impressive. 247Sports gives Seldon three stars and ranks him the No. 23 cornerback in 2020.

An earlier version of this story also listed Iowa quarterback target Sam Johnson III. Since the story was initially published, Johnson committed to Boston College.
