Scott Returns To Ohio State

In what appears to be coming down to a two-team battle between Ohio State and Michigan State, Hubbard four-star tailback L.J. Scott visited the Buckeyes Saturday. How did this trip impact his recruitment?

Hubbard four-star tailback L.J. Scott is one of the top 2015 prospects in not only Ohio, but in the Midwest.

Scott, 6-foot-2, 230-pounds, has an impressive offer list, but this one seems to between Ohio State and Michigan State. Scott visited the Buckeyes once again on Saturday.

"The visit to Ohio State was really nice and I really enjoyed being there," Scott stated. "I think it gets better every time I go there, and I know I'm going to have a tough decision some day. We hung out with the coaches, and they all treated me great."

"We toured the campus early and then we played games with the coaches, so it was cool getting to know them better," he added. "I'm being recruited by Chris Ash now, and he is definitely a very nice guy. Coach (Urban) Meyer and I spoke today and he pulled me away from everyone so we could talk."

"He told me he's proud of the work I'm doing in the classroom, and he wants me to be a Buckeye," he continued. "He let me know how much he wants me, and he made me feel wanted. He kind of singled me out in front of the other recruits in a good way, and that made me kind of nervous, but I know he's a good man."

Michigan State has always been listed as his leader in the past, and the Spartans are still there today.

"I would say Michigan State is still number-one for me, but today kind of changed things for me," Scott admitted. "It's a tough decision for me for sure, and I have a lot to think about going forward."

"I want to visit Michigan State once again for sure, and I also might come back to Ohio State next month," he explained.
