The Missouri Tigers have extended a scholarship offer to 2014 WR prospect Artavis Scott 5’11” 185 Tarpon Springs (FL) East Lake. Shortly thereafter, Scott took a few minutes to speak with ShowMeMizzou.com, and he talked about Missouri, and his recruitment.
“Missouri offered me,” said Scott. “Coach Brian Jones wants me to come to Missouri for a visit. He also said that their receivers’ coach is going to come see me.”
Scott said that he wasn’t sure when he’ll visit Missouri.
“When I have time,” explained Scott, who said that he’ll have to learn more about Missouri. “They moved to the SEC. That’s pretty good.”
Scott said that he has “over thirty offers”, and that he “can’t remember all of them”. Reportedly, he has offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa State, Louisville, Michigan, Mississippi State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, South Alabama, South Carolina, South Florida, Tennessee, UCF, UCLA, Vanderbilt, and West Virginia, among others, in addition to Missouri.
Scott reported a 4.43 forty time. Regarding other testing numbers, he replied, “I really don’t do all that stuff.”
Scott said that he hasn’t narrowed things down, and that he doesn’t really have a timetable for a decision.
“I’m interested in all of the schools that have offered me,” explained Scott, who described himself as a slot receiver who can play on the outside, as well.
Our conversation turned to spring football, which just got underway for Scott.
“Spring ball is going pretty good,” said Scott, who said that spring ball is fun, and that he really enjoys it. “Yeah. Of course. It’s football.”
Scott suggested that he will take some unofficial visits this summer, but he wasn’t sure when or where those would be.
