SG Gets 3

The summer live period is over and done with. Ballers everywhere popped up onto radars, including this Oklahoma shooting guard who picked up three offers over the summer, including one from the 'Cats.

Curran Scott started in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League where he was averaging right at about 15 pts a game. He started making a name for himself and then he made the switch to Athlete's 1st and finished with Team Texas.

Playing well and getting exposure netted him offers from Texas State, Rice and Central Arkansas. With plenty of others showing interest: Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tulsa, Texas Tech, Missouri, and Nebraska, have let him know they'll be recruiting him.

In one game while at the Adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas, Scott poured in 42 points in one game, opening the eyes of plenty coaches. The summer as a whole has been a good success for him.

"I got stronger and put on some weight. I use that in my game quite a bit, use my size as an advantage. I worked on my shot and ball handling, really everything. Overall, conditioning, my shot and ball handling were the three main things," said Scott.

Texas State offered Curran during the live period and although the Bobcats are a new program to him, he's curious to learn more. Assistant Coach Terrence Rencher is the lead recruiter on Scott.

Including Texas State, most programs are recruiting him as a SG. Some even feel that he can make the transition to PG in college if need be.

Last season Scott played his high school ball for Edmond Santa Fe (OK) and now this fall will be suiting up for Edmond Memorial HS (OK). Speaking of this fall, the Texas State staff has already let Curran know that they'd like to get him down for a visit. Talks have started, but nothing is set in stone.

The early signing period is still just a little over four months away and Scott hasn't given it too much thought. He's just waiting for that right feel and then he'll sit down with his family and coach to go over his options. That sit down might be before the early signing period or it could be after. Either way, he knows what he's looking for.

"I think academics are important, that's why your there. A good program that will let you grow as a player. Ultimately it will come down to the relationship with the coaches and players. I want it to feel like a second home, I want to be close and comfortable with everyone there."
