Army recruiting Maryland athlete

There is not any doubt that Athlete DeAndre Scott is a ball player. The only questions that will be pending during the 2011 recruiting season are, how many offers will he receive and which school will pull in the athlete out of Frederick (Md.) Thomas Johnson High School.

With one offer on the table from Central Michigan and surely others to follow, Scott will have a busy spring and summer. Right now he is hearing from Alabama, Army, Duke, Navy, Rutgers, UConn, Michigan, Pitt, Kansas State, North Carolina and NC State.

Army has sent me an email and told me that they are interested in me," shares Scott, who is open to playing in the Northeast and anywhere for that matter. "Distant is not a factor. I want to be a place that I just feel that I am playing at home. I just want to go to school where I will have a chance to play.

Scott plans on making an effort to get to as many camps, combines and 7-on-7 events as possible. "Alabama, they recruited me last year and invited me down last year to their game against LSU, but I could go because we had our last regular season game then," says Scott, who is now measuring in at 6-foot-0, 175 pounds.

"But I am going down there for the Nike Camp (University of Alabama) that I was invited to and I'm going there for the July 4th weekend for the 7-on-7 that we were invited to."

"Michigan has been talking to me and have invited me up to the Night of the Champions on Friday & Saturday."

Scott indicated that academics are priority when it comes to selecting a college. He is maintaining a 3.0 (core) GPA and has a 3.5 average.

Although he is looked upon as an athlete, the majority of schools are targeting him as a wide receiver. For Scott, he is open to any side of the ball, just as long as he is able to get out there and make plays. "I want to go against the best," acknowledges Scott. "If I'm on defense, I want to go against the best receiver and on offense; I want to go against the best corner.

Basically when I am on the field, I just want to win and I just the game of football and make plays."

Last season he registered 45 tackles, 7 INT, with 10 pass breakups and one interception returned for a touchdown.
