Cincinnati (Oh) Colerain linebacker Tegray Scales is quickly becoming one of the hottest recruiting targets in the Buckeye State.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker has seen his scholarship count rise to nearly a dozen during recent weeks.

"I'm enjoying it right now," Scales said of the recruiting process. "It's not as stressful as I thought it would be."

In early March, Louisville became the first BCS program to extend an offer and many others are now following the Cardinals lead. Boston College, Indiana, West Virginia and Wisconsin have all added their name to his offer list.

Scales, who is rated as a four-star prospect by, visited Louisville for it's Spring Game last month.

"It was great," he said. "It was nice. I met Coach Strong and he's a great guy."

With interest continuing to rise, Scales isn't ready to claim any favorites or narrow down his list of schools.

"Not yet," he explained. "I'm trying not to think about that until a couple weeks before our season starts."

He does anticipate making his college choice prior to the start of his senior season.

"I'm going to try and do it before the season starts," he said. "I'm not sure right now. I'm going to be looking at distance and how early I would be playing. Those are the things that I'm going to be looking at."

As a junior, Scales recorded 55 tackles, one interception and two sacks for Colerain.
