Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic 2020 receiver Gee Scott is a player we've known about since he was a middle schooler and was already making waves in the Northwest.

Scott had a productive freshman season on EC's varsity squad, where Scott caught eight touchdown passes for the Crusaders in their 3A state semifinal season and made Scout's early watch list of 2020 prospects.

He also played in the FBU Freshman All-American Bowl in San Antonio as part of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl week festivities.

But he's taken his game to another level this spring on the 7v7 circuit for FSP Five-Star.

Colleges have been well aware of the rising star, and his first offer came in over the weekend.

Scott took an unofficial visit to Oregon to check out the Ducks for their spring game and by the time he left, Scott had his first offer.

"I met the receiver coach (Mike Johnson) and the head coach, Willie Taggart, and some other coaches," said Scott.  "Coach Johnson offered me."

The offer was a huge boost to Scott and a big relief.

"My first offer felt a lot like a lot of other kids' first offer, it felt great," said Scott.  

Scott had previously been to Eugene but this was his first extensive time with the new staff.

"It was a great trip and it felt good meeting a lot of the Oregon staff," said Scott.  "The culture of Oregon football blows my mind every time I go down there.  Knowing they don't have a professional football team, Oregon football is their NFL there."

Scott had visited a number of schools this spring.

"I've been to Washington, Oregon, UCLA and UNLV," said Scott.

Scott was at Washington's spring game two weekend's ago, which signed his teammate Hunter Bryant in February, a number of times.

"I've gone to some of their practices and I went to their spring game," said Scott.  "I met the new receivers coach, Matt Lubick, and shook his hand.  I talk mostly with Justin Glenn (Director of High School Relations) at Washington.  I would love to get back there for an unofficial visit."

UCLA has been in touch with Scott pretty regularly and he visited last month.

"It was great there, I loved the campus," said Scott.  "They took us through the new facilities and made it sound like they're set for a great future. I met with (linebackers coach) Scott White from UCLA when I went down there."

The Huskies and Bruins are expected to stop by Eastside Catholic this spring and USC has dropped by already.

Last summer, Scott camped at UCLA and USC, one of the lone freshmen-to-be at the Elite Camp and Rising Stars Camps, respectively.

Scott may camp with USC this summer and will camp at Eastern Washington with his team in the early part of summer.

As for the offer, which comes nearly three years before his class will sign, Scott said he feels he has a lot of room to grow as a player.

"I'm not satisfied because I know my potential and I haven't even scratched the surface," said Scott.
