Scott, a 6-foot-5, 265-pound lineman, currently holds offers from James Madison and Liberty. Those two schools, he claims, offered him a while back after the end of his junior season.

Since then he has been in contact with several others.

"I've been talking to schools like Virginia. I've been talking to Marshall. Coach said he got a call from UNC and Virginia Tech."

Scott attended one of Virginia's spring practices and said the trip to Charlottesville was a good experience.

"I'm just gonna be going to a lot of camps this summer," he continued. "I'm gonna be going to the UVa camp, probably a Marshall camp, and most likely a Maryland camp."

Scott is impressive in the weight room and on the field. He bench presses 350 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.9 seconds.
