The "It" factor is often used in football terminology. Some players have "It" while others do not. Running back Darrell Scott (6'1, 203, 4.35) certainly has "It" and a whole lot more.
Last year for St. Bonaventure High School, the nation's No. 1 back ran all over his opponents rushing for close to 3,200 yards on 337 carries with 45 TDs. He was classified as the California State Junior of the Year.
All of Scott's hard work paid off.
"I currently do not have a favorite or even a top 5 list for that matter," Scott informed. "I'm going to make a few official visits first before I start to narrow my list down."
Since Scott did not give any indication of a group of favorites we asked him which seven schools he wanted Scout.com to list on his recruiting profile.
"There are more than seven schools
I am looking at but if I can only list seven then put LSU, USC,
Has the 5-star running back set anything up with LSU as far as a visit?
"Not yet but I've been talking with coach [Larry] Porter from LSU," Scott said. "I am thinking about making a visit to LSU during the bye week of my upcoming football season. I want to get a feel for the campus and how the people are around there."
One thing that has caught Scott's attention when it comes to the Tigers is that the coaches have made him a priority.
"I really like LSU," he said. "They have a really good program over there. The coaches were telling me how they are going to need a premier running back and they feel I am that guy."
Scott has been taking it easy this summer as he has only been to one camp instead focusing on the upcoming season.
"I've only been to one camp and I do not have plans on attending any more," he said.
When it comes to his ability, the all-world back is very confident in what he has to offer.
"I feel like I can score at anytime," he said confidently. "I'm a playmaker, I can do it all."
