On Saturday, Class of 2014 running back Kurt Scoby (5-8, 215) got some good news in the form of his first offer.
"Oregon State offered Kurt," said St. Paul head coach Elijah Asante. "There will be plenty more that will follow him."
The junior-to-be played at Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak last fall, rushing for 1,572 yards and 21 touchdowns, averaging 8.36 yards a carry.
"I've coached some good players and some true game-breakers when I was at Jordan and Carson, and Kurt is one of those best pure game-breakers I've ever gotten a chance to see," said Asante. "He's explosive and he's powerful."
Asante compared Scoby to former Boise State running back Doug Martin, who was a first round pick last month of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
"Last week when he came to the school, he bench pressed 315 pounds," said Asante. "He explodes through the hole but he can pound you."
Scoby has had an eventful week.
One of the more impressive 2014 prospects we've seen this spring on the camp and 7on7 circuit, Scoby made the move to St. Paul this past week.
