Bill Snyder's staff is known for taking their time in recruiting and evaluating elite talent that may have often gone unseen by the masses. Recently, the staff extended an offer to Dominique Scott, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound cornerback from Los Angeles Harbor College. Scott gave KStateFans.com the latest on his recruiting status.
"It's been on and off with Kansas State," said Dominique Scott. "In December, I received a letter from them offering a full scholarship. I was definitely excited to receive it and I'm hoping to hear more from them. There hasn't been any contact after that, but I'm waiting patiently for them to get back to me.
"Ohio is the school I've been hearing from the most. Coach Jesse Williams just called me and left a message. They're definitely interested, but I'd like to hear from some more schools before signing day in February."
A Los Angeles area product, Scott played his high school ball at Cathedral High School where he played wide receiver and defensive back for the Phantoms. After graduation in 2011, Scott enrolled at L.A. Harbor.
"I've been a two year starter," said Scott on his JuCo experience. "This year I made 29 tackles, 22 of them were solo, and I had three interceptions. It should have been four but one was called back because of a block in the back. I was named honorable mention All-Conference. I think I could have made All-Conference this year but what hurt me is I had to sit out the last two game with an ankle injury. I kept improving as a player in off cover, reading my keys, and really investigated film more than I ever have before.
"Playing [at L.A. Harbor] has helped me prepare for the mental challenges of playing Division 1 football. Coming out of high school, I felt like I was there physically. Now I can say I'm there both physically and mentally to take that next step forward in my career."
Scott will have two season of eligibility remaining in three years when he graduates in the spring. He plans on earning his degree in Business at a four year university.
