Jonathan Scott could see himself at Michigan

The tenacious free safety from Daytona (Fla.) Seabreeze expands on his current recruiting situation, and talks about the schools that are after him hardest. Can he really see himself in Maize and Blue?

Head Coach Rich Rodriguez and the rest of the Wolverines staff have clearly shown that the Sunshine State is fertile ground when it comes to plucking the top talent to bring to A2. Already securing a verbal commitment from Central-Fla.'s Jeremy Gallon, the Wolverines are hot on the trail of an East-central-Florida athlete, Daytona Seabreeze's safety Jonathan Scott.

"I'm a big time player," the 6-4, 185-pounder confidently told GoBlueWolverine. "I believe anywhere I go I'll make an impact in time. I can cover a lot of ground at safety, and I love to hit. I work with who I got to work with. I just want to play ball."

With offers already from the likes of LSU, South Carolina, Alabama, Auburn, and the Wolverines, two schools seem to be making the biggest push for the hard hitting Scott.

"I've got 15 offers right now. It's just now starting. During the season it's going to crank up. Obviously you know Michigan and South Carolina are the two coming hardest right now. Coach Rod Smith is recruiting me for Michigan."

"But I'm still wide open."

As the younger brother of Ohio State's sophomore corner James Scott, Michigan offers something very special to Jonathan.

"Oh yeah you know, I've wanted to play against my brother. That'll be a nice thing going through my family. They (Michigan's) got a nice shot at it."

As far as factors in his decision, Scott said, "I'm looking for location, the coaching staff, if I fit defense. I'm going to be part of a big program, and Michigan is one of those. I can see myself playing for them. Both of my brothers play out of state, so coming up North is not a problem."

As far as visits go, he plans to make Michigan one of them.

"Yeah, I'm going to make that official visit to Michigan, but I'm not sure yet. I know I want to make it though."

However, as far as summer visits go, he says, "I think I'm just going to get ready for senior season. I want to get smarter, stronger, and faster so I can be that elite player in Florida. I haven't really set up any visits. I'm working and everything, so I'll probably have to wait for fall to come around."

And as far as a timetable for a final decision, Scott has that in mind too.

"I want make it my high school football banquet. I'm not exactly sure when it is though."

Whenever that time comes, we'll see if he finds himself lined up against his brother in one of the richest rivalries in all of sports.
