Recruiting has been going smoothly for 2013 Park Hill South (Mo.) WR prospect Craig Scott. The 6-foot-1, 172-pound junior has heard from the likes of Arizona State, Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Illinois and Wisconsin.
So far, he has visited K-State, Mizzou, KU, Oklahoma State and Tulsa. While each school had an affect on him, one stood out on its own.
"The biggest impact was Oklahoma State," Scott said. I've always wanted to go there, the coaches and players are great. On my visit I got a chance to talk one-on-one with [receivers coach Kasey] Dunn, and they really liked the tape I sent them. They wanted me to come to their camp this summer, where they offer most of their receiver scholarships."
Scott said his visit to Tulsa also stood out to him because of the family atmosphere the coaches and players have. And that type of love is just what Scott is looking for in a program.
"I'm looking for a team that doesn't just look at me like a number," he said. "I want a team that cares for me genuinely, as well as a place that I have a realistic chance of playing. Proximity to my hometown and academics are also very important to me so I can find a job after football."
His speed, length, height, athleticism and ball control are Scott's self-proclaimed strengths that he can bring to a football program.
Although he anticipates some offers to roll in over the next few months, Scott said he chose to focus on football during his senior season, and forgo making a final commitment until February of 2013.
