Gamecocks making a move with 4-star receiver
The 6'3", 212-pound Scruggs was set to visit Columbia this past weekend, but after speaking with USC head coach Steve Spurrier he decided it was best to wait.
"No, (I didn't make it) because I had called (Spurrier), and he said he was going to be out of town for vacation, so we had to reschedule," Scruggs said. "I really don't know what day it's going to be now, but it could be sometime next week, or the week after that, something like that."
The rescheduling of his visit may end up paying off for the Gamecocks in the end, as Scruggs now says he may make it for the Gamecock Showcase Camp this Friday.
"I haven't talked to my coach about it, but if I could I would love to go to that."
Scruggs, who has 35 written scholarship offers, says he is very interested in what the Gamecocks have to offer.
"They're (South Carolina) definitely in my top two," Scruggs said.
He did not want to divulge who the other team is, but did say he has narrowed it down to a group of six, consisting of South Carolina, Illinois, Tennessee, South Florida, LSU and West Virginia. Noticeably absent is Florida, who he grew up pulling for.
Scruggs, who hauled in 23 catches for 536 yards and 7 touchdowns during his junior season, says he likes the way he would fit into the USC offense.
"They're talking real good," Scruggs said. "I like Spurrier; I like Spurrier Jr. I just like the way they run their offense. They run a pro-style offense, and I feel like I can fit in that, because I'm a possession-type receiver. And I just feel like there's a lot to their offense offensive scheme. I'm really giving them a very good look."
Scruggs says at this point he has no set time frame when he plans to make a decision.
"I'm just trying to let it go. It's tough; I'm not going to sit here and lie. I'm just going to try and take it one day at a time and sit down with my parents and make the best decision for myself."
