"Florida--they are kind of my favorite since I've grown up here," James Scott said from Daytona Beach, (Fla.)

"Alabama has such good tradition, and I like their coaches and the style of defense they play. I like LSU. They always have good teams, and I like the coaches there too."

When asked about a fourth choice he slides them into second behind Florida.

"Ohio State--I like the way they are in contention for championships every year," he said.

Scott holds offers from all four schools and more are expected.

Talk turned to this fall and his senior season as he shared, "I think we are going to have a good year. Our team is more together this year. In the four years I've been here this is the most talented team. We have a lot of young guys but the talent is there."
