Scarlett hearing from plenty

Cameron Scarlett is one of the better players in the west and is hearing from numerous schools because of it. Read on to see what he says about his recruitment and more.

Arguably one of the best players in the Pacific Northwest, Portland Central Catholic running back Cameron Scarlett is coming off an impressive season in which he ran for 1,640 yards and 22 touchdowns while adding 674 receiving yards and seven more scores.

"I had a great season," Scarlett said. "I put up some really big numbers and we won state. We went into the season knowing we were capable of some big things and it was great to see all the hard work pay off like it did."

"I knew going into the season that I was going to have a big year. I'm as big and fast as I've ever been. As the season went on I just continued to keep getting more and more confident. It has me incredibly motivated to have an even bigger next season.

Barring injury, Scarlett has the skill set to indicate his goal is attainable.

"I'm a bigger guy and I can get better at everything, but I think I've gotten to the point where I can run over a guy and also avoid him if necessary," Scarlett said. "If I can keep improving like I have I will be happy."

In terms of recruiting, the resurgence of the Pac-12 conference has gained Scarlett's attention.

"I love the schools on the West Coast," Scarlett said. "The Oregon schools are really good as is it seems every school in California. There are a lot of good choices. When you look at the recent history of all the schools, it's just cool to hear from them."

Both Arizona and Arizona State are also pursuing Scarlett.

"Both places talk to me," he said. "They both are good programs that have momentum going for them. I would like to take trips to both places there if things work out.

"I'm open to all schools, but playing on the West Coast is something that I've thought about. That is an advantage that some of the Pac-12 has, but my overall comfort level in the school is what will help me decide."
