"He said I did great," Scanlan said. "(He said) I have great ball skills, I play the ball well and attack the ball, he said I run my routes crisply."
During his appearance at camp, Scalan posted good numbers in the speed and agility drills and also had a strong performance in one-on-one drills.
Scanlan (6-2, 200) is admittedly "raw" as a wide receiver. He has been a receiver for just one year after playing quarterback and safety for his high school team. Northwestern is hoping to see more of him, but an offer could come down the road.
"(Spinger) just wants to see me play my senior year and evaluate me," Scanlan said. "He said I'm definitely at the top of their list."
Scanlan flew in from Pennsylvania on Thursday and is staying in Evanston till Saturday. He's taken tours of the campus and of downtown Evanston. Today, the Northwestern coaches gave him a list of restaurants to try out while he's in town.
Overall, Scanlan has a very good feeling about Northwestern.
"I really liked it here," Scanlan said. "The coaches are great. Coach Heffner has been recruiting me. He's great. Coach Springer is awesome. We have a great relationship. I could really see myself being here."
For Scanlan, being in attendance at the Chicagoland Showcase was a big step in his recruitment.
"This camp really helped me out for recruiting because four or five coaches came up to me and said we'd be in contact."
In his first season as a full-time wide receiver, Scanlan finished with 38 catches for 738 yards and eight touchdowns. He helped his Spring-Ford Rams to a 9-3 overall record.
