Scott visits for ODU game

Speedy 2014 Green Run (Virginia Beach, VA) running back Anthony Scott visited East Carolina for its home opener against Old Dominion. Inside ECU Sports spoke with him about how it went.

One of the fastest running backs in Virginia visited ECU during its 52-38 home opening win over the ODU Monarchs. Green Run running back, Anthony Scott, is high on ECU's lists of sought after recruits.

The 2014 factor-back, with a 4.2 40-yard dash time, went to the game with his best friend Green Run defensive end Shaun James. James committed to the Pirates last month and may be close to having his best friend join him. They enjoyed the game day experience.

"Shaun and I pulled up late and didn't get to talk with coaches," the 5-foot-10, 180-pound Scott said. "I liked the big crowd at ECU; it showed me maybe what it will be like if I ended up playing there. We had to leave during the third quarter, but it was a good time."

Scott's top two schools pursuing him are ECU and West Virginia. He holds offers from both schools including James Madison, Hampton and most recently Old Dominion. The Pirates have an offense that would suit Scott very well and seeing it in action raised his interest.

"(ECU) is still high on my list," he said. "I like the receivers I saw the other night, I'm glad I got to see a good game. They run an offense similar to what we run at Green Run, I feel like I'd get used to it quick."

At first ECU offered Scott at the defensive back position, the coaches have since changed his offer to the running back position. As for when he'll make his decision, ECU will have to wait it out during his senior season.

"I want to play running back so I'm glad ECU offered me at that position," Scott said. "I am still going to wait until after the season to commit to a school. I don't want to miss out on offers that could come."

Old Dominion is the most recent school to offer Scott, but he is hearing it from all of his schools that have extended offers. James Madison is trying to get him to visit as soon as possible.
