Shedrick Moorer: DeAndre how did your junior season with Gov Thomas Johnson HS go last fall?
DeAndre Scott: We ended going 8-5 last year. We lost in the semifinals to Wise High School. We fell short of our goal; winning the state championship.
SM: Talk a little bit about your best game from a season ago.
DS: My best game was against Patterson. Winning that game put us in the semifinal. We haven't been in the semifinals in about 2-3 years. I had four interceptions in that game. I think I broke the record for the state of Maryland.
SM: Tell me a little bit about some of your strengths on the field as an athlete.
DS: Being a receiver, my hands are great. I'm also strong on the defensive side of the ball. I can read receivers well, since that's my main position. I can tell when the receiver is about to come out of his breaks. I do a good job at reading the quarterback's eyes too.
SM: What areas would you like to improve in?
DS: I need to work on my footwork offensively and defensively. I'd like to get a lot stronger as well.
SM: Switching gears to the recruiting front... Who are some of the schools that have been expressing interest in you as a prospect?
SM: Any offers?
DS: Yes sir, I have an offer from Central Michigan.
SM: How familiar are you with the two service academy programs that have been keeping tabs on you?
DS: I really don't know a whole lot about them. Actually my coach keeps in touch with Army and Navy a lot.
SM: Would you be interested in learning more about them?
DS: Yes sir, I would.
SM: How do you feel about the service commitment?
DS: I really don't have a problem with it. I just want the opportunity to go somewhere and play football. It really doesn't matter whether it is a service academy or not.
SM: Do you have any trips lined up for the summer?
DS: Yes sir. I'll be going to UCLA for a camp sometime in June. My dad and I will be flying out there. And I'll probably camp with North Carolina, NC State, Virginia, and Pitt. I may also go to Iowa and Michigan.
SM: When are you looking to make your final decision?
DS: Well I'll be graduating in December, and I would like enroll in the school of my choice next January. So I want to make my decision sometime during the summer, or during the early part of my senior season.
