Will Texas Get a 7th All-American?

Dallas Skyline safety Christian Scott talks about his official visit to Texas later this month, the timeline for making his commitment and the factor that will matter most in his decision during an exclusive interview with Inside Texas from U.S. Army All-American Bowl week.

IT: You looked somewhat hobbled today at times during practice. Are you healthy?

Christian Scott: I hit one of my ankles. I hurt it way back at the beginning of the season. It bothers me a little, but not as much as the linemen cleats they gave me. There's supposed to take care of that.

IT: Your roommate this week is Curtis Brown, a Texas commitment, who will enroll in Austin later this month. Is he talking to you about the Longhorns?

Scott: Yeah. He's talking to me about how good Texas is and how the people there are so good and all that. He's a real cool cat.

IT: Are you going to make your college decision this week?

Scott: No. I'm taking my visit to Texas on Jan. 19th.

IT: Does any school lead for you right now?

Scott: No. I want to get to Texas and check them out.

IT: What schools are you still considering?

Scott: LSU, OU, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Texas.

IT: Wasn't Oklahoma your favorite at one time?

Scott: It was because that was the only school that I had visited so I had no other choice but to make them my favorite.

IT: What do you like about Texas?

Scott: It's in Texas. It's not so far. I like the coaches that I have met so far. They seem like real down to earth people. The players that I've met are cool.

IT: Do you see any negatives to Texas?

Scott: No, not so far.

IT: Will your visit to Texas later this month ultimately decide where you attend college?

Scott: Oh yeah. It's my last visit. I don't see any reason why I wouldn't be able to decide after that. I'll want to talk to my parents and coaches to decide where I go.

IT: Will that decision come quickly after your visit to Texas?

Scott: Right, I don't want to wait until signing day.

IT: What will be the most important factor in your decision?

Scott: Somewhere I fit in and feel real comfortable at as far as playing, depth chart and that sort of thing. It needs to be somewhere that if I didn't have to play football anymore, I would still want to be there.
