Scott has interest, Cincy prioritizes him

Junior Tre Scott has a handful of offers and plenty of college interest as he gears up for his final spring and summer on the AAU circuit.

Tre Scott, a 6-foot-7 power forward out of Darien (Ga.) McIntosh County, first caught's eye last July playing for the South Georgia Kings.

Last Saturday at The Elite Preview, Scott showed much of what he did last summer. He was active in the paint, hit the glass with tenacity and finished off plays around the basket.

Although his team got bounced in the second round of the state playoffs, Scott said his high school season was a success. He was named the Region AA Player of the Year and averaged 18 points a game.

"The first thing I bring is team ball," Scott said. "I'm not a selfish player. I like to get my teammates involved. I'm a versatile player because I can play around the basket or I can step out and shoot threes or shoot the jump shot and I finish on the break."

Scott currently has scholarship offers from Georgia, Cincinnati and Alabama. He also cited interest from Tennessee, Clemson, George Mason, Mississippi and Georgia Southern.

Scott gets Region POY
"It's going good," he said of his recruitment. "I hope it picks up more after my last year of AAU, but so far it's going good."

Scott has taken one unofficial visit.

"I took one last year to Georgia," he said. "It was good. I had fun. They showed me around the basketball facility. Then I went to the Georgia/LSU football game. It was fun."

Scott said a school from outside his region is showing him the most attention.

"I think Cincinnati is," he said. "What makes it different for me is I have family there. My aunt works at the school sand I got a cousin in my grade is going there and I have an older cousin there."

"Every time I talk to coach Davis, the coach that is recruiting me, there's a connection I feel with him," he said. "I text him after games and he text me after games. He says it would be better if I was there and he wants me to be apart of their family. There's just a connection I have with them."

Scott, a three-star recruit, said he intends to take visits this summer. He didn't mention a timetable for his recruitment.
