Scoby Making Progress

Mission Hills (Calif.) Alemany running back Kurt Scoby has seen some more interest from Pac-12 schools recently.

Kurt Scoby has been staying busy on and off the football field this offseason and the work is paying off. Scoby still holds two offers, but a couple of new schools have amped up their efforts toward him.

"Washington has actually stepped into the picture, and Utah" Scoby said. "Washington is on me right now."

Defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi has been his primary contact at Washington and the two have discussed why Scoby would be a good fit. He called Washington a good school, but also cited his desire for an offer from their rival to the south.

"Oregon is always in the picture," Scoby said. "Always."

Despite a lack of contact with Oregon running backs coach Gary Campbell as of late, Scoby still holds the Ducks in high regard. Scoby said he was a fan of Jonathan Stewart growing up.

"That's my team," Scoby said. "I know I can fit in that system very well and I call ball hard in that system."

Scoby attributed the lack of contact between him and Oregon to his focus on school. The running back has been hitting the books in an effort to improve his grades as the school year winds down and will take several tests this week.

"It's been going good," Scoby said. "Things are getting better."

Scoby attended the UCLA Spring Game last Saturday and said that he's also receiving more attention from a school he's already camped at.

"I've been hearing from USC a lot," Scoby said. "Just like handwritten letters."

As he enters the summer months and prepares for camps, Scoby expects to put more of a focus on recruiting.

"It's going to pick up way more than it is now," Scoby said. "When summer hits it's going to blow up."
