Paul Scruggs talks about his improvement and top options

CHARLOTTESVILLE,Va - Paul Scruggs has had a good run of things at the NBPA Top 100 Camp and he continues to move forward in his recruitment.

Four-star prospect Paul Scruggs has had a strong showing at the NBPA Top 100 Camp. The Indiana native continues to make strides from scorer to point guard, and is beginning to think seriously about his college decision.

“It is an honor to be here and get invited to this camp,” said Scruggs of NBPA Camp. ‘Everybody I have heard from says this is one of the best camps so I am blessed to be here.”

About his transition from scorer to point guard, Scruggs said, “The process is really coming along nicely. It is getting easier for me each game and I am getting more comfortable at that position.”

Recently Scruggs narrowed his list to Illinois, Indiana, Xavier, Ohio State, Louisville, Michigan State, and Kansas.

Over the weekend Scruggs made a return trip to Xavier and again came away impressed with the Big East school.

“It wasn’t really a visit,” said Scruggs of his visit to Xavier. “I went there for their team camp. I had a chance to talk with Coach (Chris) Mack and Coach (Travis) Steele when I was down there. My relationship just keeps getting better with them every time I talk to them, so it was good to be down there.”

Scruggs was also recently supposed to go to Illinois, but he had to cancel that trip. He did however recently make it to Louisville.

About that visit, Scruggs said, “Louisville was real nice. The campus is nice, the facilities are nice, and it is just Louisville. Everything is really nice.”

One of the main sells for Louisville is assistant coach Kenny Johnson who has recruited Scruggs since his freshman year.

“I have had a very good relationship with him since the time he was at IU,” said Scruggs of his relationship with Johnson. “Our relationship has grown throughout the years.”

When it comes to Indiana, Scruggs has been there many times throughout his career, and continues to have a strong bond with the school.

“The program is a wonderful program,” said Scruggs of Indiana. “They do a good job with their players and they let their guards go. Also they get players to the draft.”

Look for Scruggs to play out the month of July and then make a few visits in August before coming to a college decision.
