Impressive Lineman Piling Up Offers

The South's 20th-rated player talks recruiting and favorites in this update.

Lovejoy, Ga.-–One of the most physically imposing offensive linemen in the South is starting to rack up an impressive list of schools offering scholarships and says that he's pretty open at the moment. Massive 6-4, 315 Chris Scott from Lovejoy High is a player that schools have been raving about since early in the spring and his list of offers proves that.

Chris is sporting written offers from 12 programs right now. He has offers in his hand from Tennessee, Mississippi State, Auburn, Georgia, Duke, Vanderbilt, Florida, South Carolina, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Maryland and defending BCS Champion LSU. Despite the numerous choices Scott says he won't begin to remove teams until later this year.

"I have no favorites right now and will begin to narrow my list by the end of summer," said Scott. "I grew up a Florida State fan. They still may be in my mind a little more than the others right now, but it is early. I'm looking for coaching stability, campus, the environment and number one is academics. I am looking to major in business management or engineering."

A visitor to both Tallahassee and Auburn last year for camps, Scott is no stranger to the summer circuit. He has also visited Michigan for the Notre Dame game last fall and was in Athens this past April for Georgia's spring game. Although he has plenty of options on what to do this summer, Scott said he's not sure what his plans are at the moment. "My Dad and I are still talking about them," he said.

A powerful blocker at the point of attack, Scott will have the chance to improve on some key areas before next fall when he attends camps this summer. He said there are several things he wants to get better at before his senior season begins.

"My strengths are footwork, quick feet and technique, and my only true weakness is staying low".

At this time, Scott is wide open and likely will let the entire process play out all the way to late January before making his decision.
