Scott is down to four

Although a hip pointer sidelined 4-star safety Christian Scott for most of the practices, he wasn't going to miss his opportunity to play against the best of the best at the U.S. Army All-American Game.

"I got a hip pointer on the first day of practice, but there was no way I wasn't going to play," said Scott. "I stayed in the game and it was pretty painful. I'd only come out if the pain got too bad."


All in all, Christian Scott (6-0, 195, 4.5) said his experience while at the Army All-American game was a good one.


"It was all good," said Scott. "It was fun to get together, and you'd think with all these all-stars we'd have our egos and stuff, but there were a lot of cool guys and we all just got along together. It was good competition and I knew we'd be able to make each other play harder and better."


Scott said that he is still deciding between four schools at this point and a commitment will not come until later January at the earliest.


"I'm still looking at LSU, Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma," he said. "I will not know much more about my decision until I visit Texas on Jan. 19."



During his stay in San Antonio, Scott did get a chance to hang out with several players and one was LSU commitment Luther Davis.


"He (Davis) just talked about going to LSU and how excited he was," said Scott. "We watched the game (Sugar Bowl) together and you could just tell that that game kind of made him feel like he had made the right choice. I think it would be good to be around guys like that."


Because his play was limited by his injury, Scott said that the thing that stood out the most for him was the camaraderie among all the players.


"We just got along and had so much fun," said Scott.


Scott said his relationship with LSU receivers coach Todd Monken is good and that he calls him almost on a daily basis. He said there is no clear cut leader in his mind as far as what team he will choose.


As for the road ahead, Scott said he doesn't expect much to change.


"I really don't expect anything different from the schools or anything like that as we get closer to signing day," said Scott. "I'm going to take my last visit to Texas and then I'll go from there."
