Scott listed shooting and getting to the rim as his strengths. The recruiting process heated up for Scott during his junior year. Of his seven offers Scott listed ECU, Delaware, and Drexel as his top three schools. “I like the conferences,” he said. “I like the conference that ECU is in and that they are in a position to make it to tournaments.” Scott has been to ECU twice already and was impressed with the campus. When deciding on a school, Scott wants to go to a school that has a big college atmosphere. He said when he went to visit ECU that he felt that kind of atmosphere on campus and was also impressed with Minges Coliseum. When he was at ECU Scott talked to assistant coach Ken Potosnak. Scott values the coaches’ interest in him. He said he values the time and effort that coaches put in to recruit him. “The campus looked nice,” he said. “The campus was big, I liked the coaches and I liked that it had a lot of students. I would prefer not to go to a school in a big city.” Getting recruited by schools like ECU was a goal for Scott. He wanted to play for a Division I school and noted the competition in the American is something he was looking for. “It’s definitely great, being able to say I got recruited by a school in the American and with the level of competition in the conference is great. It’s nice to get recruited by a school like that,” he said. Before Scott makes a decision he wants to visit ECU, Drexel and Delaware officially. Scott also has offers from Rider and Fairfield.
