ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- A native of Germany, 2017 wide receiver Zavier Scott is making his rounds in the United States trying to pick up as many offers as possible.
On Saturday, it was Michigan's chance to host the 6-foot-2, 200-pounder, and he didn’t disappoint, winning the fastest player in the camp.
“Well, I came into today’s camp with a focused mindset like I do with any other camp, like I did with Ohio State’s camp. I wanted to just come and perform at the best of my ability,” Scott said. “And I’ve been sore the past few day and wanted to get my body ready for today and show them the best I can do.”
Scott’s mindset, of course, was to try to earn offer, an opportunity mentioned by Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown himself.
“He told me if I came in today and performed well there is a chance I could get an offer,” Scott said.
While no offer was made by Michigan, Scott admits if U-M were to extend a scholarship his way it would be “dream” scenario in his recruitment.
“What would it mean? It’s the University of Michigan, this obviously my dream school,” he said. “Like it’s been a great program throughout the years and it’s always attracted the best of the best. It would be amazing to play for.”
At the moment, Scott holds notable offers from Syracuse, Eastern Michigan, Ohio and Central Michigan, who were guest coaches at U-M’s camp.
“They’ve been talking to me a little bit at the past few camps,” Scott said of CMU. “Ohio State camp I believe, and today they offered me.”
Moving forward, Scott is undecided if he will add another year of prep high school football so more schools can see him in high school football action.
“That’s what Ohio State wants me to do, it’s not for sure but I might have a chance to play there if I do a prep year,” Scott said.
Though, he says he's uncertain if he wants to play another year of prep football due to the risk of getting injured.
Next up, Scott says he will head back to Germany on June 24 or 25 and then will decide with his parents on his college direction.
“I was going to let this time in the state to get as many offers as I can,” Scott said. “Then we’re going to sit down and talk about it.”
- Scott would most likely have to enter prep school or grey-shirt if he were to go to Michigan or Ohio State.
- Has not made a decision yet on if he’ll reclassify for 2018.
