Scarlett Hungry For More Pac-12 Offers

Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic athlete Cameron Scarlett is trying to visit a couple of Pac-12 schools in the next month.

Central Catholic athlete Cameron Scarlett is continuing to see positive things happen for him early on in the recruiting season. He has added offers from Cal and Arizona recently giving him seven total from the Pac-12, but he's hungry for more.

"It definitely feels good, especially just growing up it was the only conference I knew in-depth," Scarlett said. "It's definitely a humbling experience to be able to say I have at least half of the Pac-12 and hopefully more to come."

Outside of those new offers, Scarlett is still hearing from Washington, USC and UCLA, and has received new interest from Eastern Michigan as well as Harvard and Yale.

Out of all of the schools interested, a few stand out as being more aggressive than others in pursuing the four-star prospect.

"Stanford is probably talking to me the most," Scarlett said. "Oregon talks to me a good bit and so does Cal."

While the Ducks have expressed interest in taking advantage of Scarlett's ability as an effective running back and receiver, the Cardinal are seemingly more interested in Scarlett in a traditional running back role. They hope they'll get a chance to see how he looks in person in early April.

"They've been mostly talking about their Junior Day coming up and when I can get down there because I'm going to try and attend that," Scarlett said.

Oregon wide receivers coach Matt Lubick has been the primary contact for Scarlett and the two have recently had discussions about Scarlett's Central Catholic squad making the quarterfinals of the 6A state basketball tournament.

Now that he's transitioning to track, his father has talked with the recruiting coordinators to set up a time for Cameron to spend time checking out the school while the Rams descend on Hayward Field next month.

"I have a track meet on a Saturday, so I'm going to go on a Friday and spend the whole day there and run track the next day," Scarlett said.

Outside of those trips, Scarlett is expecting track to dominate his time this spring. When summer arrives, he has a couple of events lined up and will be looking to schedule visits.

"Moving on to summer, I don't have much planned," Scarlett said. "I'm going to try to make it to the NFTC camp and the FBU camp at Lakeridge in early June."
