Scott stayed home

The picture says it all: West Jeff wide receiver Devin Scott is happy that he decided to sign with the Ragin' Cajuns despite a late offer from Nebraska...

Devin Scott took a last-minute visit to Nebraska after getting an offer from the Cornhuskers, but the West Jeff wide-out subsequently made the choice to sign with the Ragin' Cajuns.

"I'm feeling great about it," Scott said after jotting his signature on a letter of intent to play for the Cajuns. "This is what I wanted to do. I'm staying home in the state I love, and I feel great about it."

Scott enjoyed the trip to Nebraska although it wasn't enough to sway him.

"The visit was good," he said, "but I just felt more at home at UL. I have a good relationship with the coaches at UL."

The Cajuns' staff earned points with Scott for encouraging him to take the Nebraska visit.

"They were very happy I stayed with UL though," he said. "I like a lot of things about the UL program. I like their style of play and the coaches, and I like how the coaches treat you."

The Scott family was relieved when he signed with the Cajuns.

"My mom was happy because she doesn't like to fly in airplanes," Scott laughed.

His goals for the spring include setting state records in both the 4 X 100 and 4 X 200 relays, and setting a new PR in the 400 meters.
