Texas on His Mind

SAN ANTONIO -- Dallas Skyline safety Christian Scott talks about Oklahoma's loss to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl, whether he has been offered a scholarship by Texas and the efforts to recruit him to the Longhorns during an exclusive interview with Inside Texas from U.S. Army All-American Bowl week.

IT: With Oklahoma's loss to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl yesterday, does that impact how you feel about the Sooners? You visited them and have mentioned them as one of your finalists.

Christian Scott: No, it doesn't.

IT: What did you think of the game?

Scott: I was surprised. I was kind of disappointed too.

IT: Has your roommate and Texas commitment Curtis Brown talked to you anymore about the Longhorns?

Scott: He has a little bit.

IT: Are he and the other Longhorn commitments making any progress in potentially getting you to attend Texas?

Scott: I'm listening to what they say, but I want to go there Jan. 19th and see what I want.

IT: Has Texas officially offered you a scholarship?

Scott: They have offered me one.

IT: Are you getting tired of hearing about Texas this week?

Scott: I just listen and take it all in seeing what they say.

IT: Are any other committed West team players talking to you about their respective schools?

Scott: No, basically it's just the Texas guys.

IT: Can you actually envision yourself playing at Texas?

Scott: I can. I think about it.

IT: Why?

Scott: Because it's Texas and the players are mainly from Texas and I can relate to most of them.

IT: Texas defensive tackle commitment Andre Jones yesterday said that he doesn't think you're coming to Texas. He believes if you wanted to be a Longhorn that you would have already chosen them. Is that true?

Scott: I mean have been to Texas, but I don't know how he's saying that. I don't get it.

IT: Andre said he heard you were serious about LSU. What are your thoughts on that?

Scott: I am continuing to look at them. We'll see.

IT: Who impressed you the most during practice today?

Scott: John Chiles. He's a good athlete. He can do a little bit of everything.
