Asked about his thumb, Scanlon said, "It's still a little stiff, it doesn't hurt, just a little stiff."
"What I do best I think is reading defenses," said Scanlon about his strengths.
Scanlon has narrowed his favorites down to four schools right now: Iowa, Rutgers, Penn State, and Virginia; with Rutgers and Iowa as the teams recruiting him the hardest right now.
About Virginia, Scanlon said "I really just like the way they run things, and I like the good team chemistry."
Scanlon said about what he looks for in a school, "First I look at how good the academics, and then I look not like just at the depth chart, but I look to see if there is room at that school for me to play."
Last year Scanlon attended the Michigan-San Diego State game in Michigan, and the Michigan State-Rutgers game in New Jersey.
About the Rutgers game, Scanlon said "I loved it, the team was losing, but they came back and won."
As for summer camps, Scanlon will go to the Iowa, the Rutgers for a day, Virginia for a day and Penn State for a day.
