Scott commits to Fresno State

Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral athlete Damari Scott took an official visit to Fresno State over the weekend and had such a good time, he decided to pull the trigger and committed to the Bulldogs a few days later.

DaMari Scott never got recruited as hard as his talent dictated and was one of the bigger sleeper prospects in the state. He's a talented player on both sides of the ball and had a strong senior season at receiver and cornerback.

Scott was recruited by the Bulldogs to play receiver and said the offense was the biggest reason for his decision.

"I fit in really well with the offense and I love the opportunity to step in and play right away," Scott said. "I like the campus, the coaches were great with me and I felt really comfortable with the players on the team.

"I actually thought about committing on the visit but Coach DeRuyter wanted me to go home and talk things over with my family. Coach Antonio came in for a home visit last night and I knew Fresno State was the place for me so I decided to go ahead and jump on this offer and get it done."

Scott was planning to take visits to San Jose State and Toledo but hasn't decided if he'll take any more trips.

"I'm a Bulldog," Scott said. "I may still take that visit to Toledo, but right now, I feel really good about this, like a big weight off my back. Things were a little stressful during the season and I thought more schools would jump in and offer but I'm happy with how things worked out. I'm going to a great school and I plan on doing big things at Fresno State."
