Upper Marlboro (Md.) Riverdale Baptist 2016 cornerback Sir Patrick Scott is one of the top players in the state and, as is usually the case, he has a busy summer planned.
“I just left a Detroit camp,” Scott said. “I was able to talk with some coaches and learn some stuff that I didn’t know. Everything was pretty basic, but it was a good experience and a way to measure my skills.
“I’m really good in man coverage. I can play physical and I have the speed to catch up if I get beat. There are a number of things that I can improve on. I know that.”
Michigan State is one of the schools on top for Patrick Scott.
“Michigan State does an amazing job of putting cornerbacks into the NFL and every year it seems they have one of the best, if not the best defense in the country," he said. Plus, I love the physical style that those guys play. It’s a school that I’ve always liked.”
While Michigan State makes sense on a multitude of levels, there is a wildcard in Scott’s recruitment.
“I also like Wake Forest," Patrick Scott said. "Along with Michigan State that is my favorite school. It doesn’t have the reputation that some other schools do, but they’ve really made me a priority and I can feel how much they like and respect my game.
“Those are my leaders, but there are a bunch of other places in the hunt. Arizona has been talking with me. Coach Dews likes my game, but we’re still in the process of establishing a relationship and the recruitment is kind of new."
A decision could be announced in the coming months.
“I originally was going to commit after the season, but I don’t want to wait and take the chance that spots will be filled up," Patrick Scott said.”
