He talks about playing in the U.S. Army All-American game and more with Fox Sports/Scout.com.
While most high school seniors dread heading back to school after winter break, things are a little different for East Lake (Tarpon Springs, Fla.) wide receiver Artavis Scott. The four-star wide out is spending his final week of winter break in San Antonio, Texas, participating in the 14th annual U.S. Army All-American game, but when the 6-foot, 175-pounder returns, he won't be headed back to high school. Instead, Scott will enroll early at Clemson and get a jump-start on his collegiate career.
"It will be fun, I leave here [San Antonio] and go up there to Clemson," Scott said. "I just can't wait to get there and get things started. I have been waiting for this for a long time."
Before Scott kicks off his college career, he has one last chance to enjoy being a high schooler and pick up a few new tips while he participates in the annual Army All-American game.
"This whole experience has been a lot of fun," Scott said. "I like it a lot coming down and competing against everyone. It has been great."
Scott has already separated himself on the field among a talented pool of wide outs on his East team. The East Lake standout showed his ability to gain separation and haul in passes down the field.
"I feel like I have been performing great, we are all boosting each other up and competing," Scott said. "All the coaches here have kind of brought something different we might not have done at our school or I haven't seen before so I am learning a lot."
"All of the players here are way faster then what I am used to so it's been really good."
The USAAAB has also given Scott a chance to bond with a few of his future Clemson teammates like Demarre Kitt, and Korie Rogers, who are also on the East team.
"Demarre [Kitt] and Korie [Rogers] we have all been talking together and hanging out," Scott said. "It's been real cool getting to just hang out with them and some of the other players and get to know them better."
Scott will play for the East All-Stars in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl game on Saturday Jan. 4 at 1 p.m. EST.
