Norco HS LB Scott Starr (Norco, CA) picked up his sixth offer just a few days ago as Boise State became the latest school to extend an offer to the talented LB. Right now, Starr is just enjoying the process, but says he would like to have a top three by mid-summer.

"I'm still wide open," he said. "I'd like to have top three by mid-summer and I definitely would like to know where I'm going before the season starts. I want to be able to focus on my season since recruiting can take up a lot of time."

It's widely known that Head Coach Chris Petersen likes to "get to know" each prospective recruit before extending an offer. Starr says he has a lot of respect for that method of recruiting.

"The first time I spoke to them it was their LB Coach (Bob Gregory) and then Coach Petersen gave me a call a couple weeks later," he stated. "He said he likes to get to know his players a little better before offering. Personally, I think that's a good way to recruit. A lot of schools will just offer based on hype, but it's good to get to know the character of a kid."

"Honestly, I don't know a lot about Boise State right now, but I'm excited to learn more about them," he said. "I do know that they have a good defense and it seems like they're always a well-coached football team."

In 2010, the Norco Cougars finished the season with a 9-3 record. A nine win season is cause for celebration at most schools throughout the country, but expectations are just a bit higher at Norco HS.

"It was a great record but they expect you to go undefeated," said Starr. "If you don't like football and aren't willing to work hard, you're at the wrong school. This town bleeds Norco football and we have so much support from the community. The expectations are high, but you have to embrace it."

"Most of the guys are already talking about making a run at a CIF Title. That's great, but first we have to win league," he said. "Last year, we struggled a bit with the senior leadership, but I don't think that'll be a problem this year. All of the seniors have the same personality and we all know we have to work our tails off to get where we want to be as a team."

What does Starr (6'3, 205) bring to the gridiron?

"Hard work and dedication is what I base my game on," he said. "My goal is to be the leader of this team and to inspire the kids by setting a good example," he added.

As a junior, Starr had 114 tackles and 3 sacks.
