Scott Piling up Offers

Imhotep Charter (Philadelphia) cornerback DeAndre Scott holds more than a dozen offers, but the recruiting process is just starting for him. He spoke to FOXSportsNEXT about his recruitment, and his offers.

Imhotep Charter (Philadelphia) is quickly establishing itself as an elite program, and its latest high-level prospect is cornerback DeAndre Scott.

According to Imhotep coach Albie Crosby, Scott holds 13 FBS offers, but his recruitment is in its infancy.

Scott has been to Temple and Pittsburgh, and plans to visit Penn State on Saturday. All three have offered, and Crosby said Tennessee, Arizona State, Rutgers, Massachusetts, UCF, South Carolina, Miami, Texas, West Virginia and Kansas also extended verbal offers.

"I'm not sure what I want to major in yet, but I do want to get my masters in case football doesn't work out," the 5-foot-10, 175-pound Scott said. "With football, I just want to get on the field. I don't care where I play."

Scott's knowledge, at this point, is limited to a few of the area schools. He was at Pittsburgh's junior day and got a good feel for the program while there.

"It was a great experience," he said. "I liked it there. I liked how the field is set up. They practice right next to the Steelers, and their weight room is kind of old school. I liked that. They're staff, I feel like I could be good friends with them off the field."

Penn State visited the school in January, and Scott is now set to see the campus and meet the staff this weekend.

"All I know is they've got good connections. That's it," Scott said. "All colleges tell me the same thing. They tell me to keep my grades up and keep working hard."

Rutgers is also a program showing Scott plenty of interest.

"I know they have a good football team, and they're school is great," he said. "I don't know anything else."

Scott finished his junior season with 69 tackles, including four sacks, and six interceptions.
