Two Big Offers For Ohio Sophomore

L.J. Scott has certainly made his mark in Ohio the past two seasons as a starter for Hubbard. The sophomore picked up two big offers Friday, and more will be coming his way.

Hubbard (OH) sophomore tailback L.J. Scott is one of the top 2015 prospects in Ohio, and he has turned heads the past two years as a starter.

Scott, 6-foot-1, 220-pounds, is a power runner with the speed to take the football to the end zone from distance. College coaches have noticed, and Scott added two big offers Friday afternoon.

"I was offered by Kentucky and Michigan State today," Scott stated. "I feel blessed to have these offers. Coach (Vince) Marrow from Kentucky is from Youngstown and he knows my uncle really well. My athletic director told me Kentucky was offering me and I was able to speak with Coach Marrow for a minute, and he is a great guy."

"He played in the NFL for ten years, and that offer means a lot to me," he added. "I'd like to visit Kentucky and they want me to come for camp. This is my second SEC offer, with Tennessee having offered earlier, and that's huge."

Michigan State became the first Big Ten school to offer shortly after, and Scott was impressed by that offer as well.

"Coach (Pat) Narduzzi was in the weight room watching me work out, and he told my coach that I reminded him of Leveon Bell," Scott said. "He offered me and it means a lot to know they're watching me. They are going to be following me until my senior season is over and that's exciting."

Kentucky and Michigan State weren't the only top programs stopping at Hubbard Friday, and Scott had two other schools in for evaluation purposes.

"Arkansas and Ohio State were in the school as well," he explained. "I don't know much about Arkansas, but Coach (Taver) Johnson is a nice man. Ohio State let me know they're very interested in me, and I like Coach (Ed) Warriner a lot. They want me in camp this summer, and I plan on going there."
