Scott figuring things out

Tarpon Springs (Fla.) East Lake wide receiver Artavis Scott discusses how he'll make his decision now that teammate Mason Cole has committed to Michigan. He explains which schools are recruiting him the hardest and what advice he's offering younger teammate, George Campbell.

On Feb. 25, offensive lineman Mason Cole of Tarpon Springs (Fla.) East Lake committed to Michigan. Which means teammate wide receiver Artavis Scott will follow suit, right?

"When we first started this recruiting journey together, we wanted to play together," Scott said. "We had that plan in our minds and we were visiting all the same schools. I don't really know about that anymore. He committed too early for me."

Scott says his decision won't come until late.

"I'll probably take all of my official visits," Scott said. "I'm not sure yet who will get officials. I'll make my decision pretty late in the process."

Though Scott isn't naming any favorites, four schools are on him the hardest right now.

"It's difficult to tell who is recruiting me the hardest, but I talk to Michigan, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and Clemson almost every day," Scott said. "I talked to [Notre Dame recruiting coordinator] Coach [Tony] Alford today [March 3]. He was just touching base with me and seeing how everything was going. I talk with Coach Alford all the time, and a lot of times we don't even talk about football."

East Lake sophomore athlete George Campbell was recently offered a scholarship by Notre Dame.

"I tell George to take as many visits as he can," Scott said. "I don't want him to follow me just to follow me. He needs to make his own decision."

Scott isn't sure when he'll narrow his list, but there's a good chance Notre Dame will get another visit.

"Leaving Florida won't be a problem," Scott said. "It's definitely a possibility that Notre Dame will get a second visit. I liked it a lot last time."

Scott is a four-star prospect and ranked as the No. 15 wide receiver in 2014. As a sophomore, he had 54 receptions for 1158 yards. Top Stories
