Havelock High School's Derrell Scott holds offers from Duke, East Carolina, North Carolina, N.C. State, Ohio State, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.

Coaches from Ohio State, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, North Carolina, N.C. State, East Carolina and Tennessee have been by his school this spring.

Scott, who checks in at 5-11, 180, participated at the Nike Football Training Camp in Charlotte earlier this spring. At the camp, Scott told CUTigers that he would like to receive more interest from Clemson.

"They've got a great program," he said. "They had a great freshman player they started last year, Sammy Watkins, so I could get on the field early. You can get to the next level."

This summer, he'd like to camp at Clemson, South Carolina, North Carolina and N.C. State.

As a sophomore, he had 1,800 rushing yards and 22 touchdowns. Top Stories
