Scott Talks Linebacker at UCLA Camp

All eyes were on Anaheim (Calif.) Magnolia defensive back Jamal Scott at the recent UCLA Elite camp and the athlete didn't disappoint...

Jamal Scott might be the most physical and hard hitting safety in the state. He blew up last month when his Under the Radar highlight video went viral and offers started flooding in.

He attended UCLA's Elite camp Friday and got off to a strong start clocking a 4.61-40 at 6-2, 202 pounds. During the one on ones, Scott looked a little passive and didn't take too many reps. He was then moved to linebacker for the 7 on 7 portion of the camp and that's when he came alive.

"There were a lot of defensive backs out there so I didn't get as many chances in the one on ones," Scott said following the camp. "When we went to 7 on 7, I was actually going to move to linebacker but the coaches told me to take some reps and I really liked playing that position.

"I think I got to show off some versatility and it was fun learning a new position. I liked Coach Ulbrich a lot and got some great feedback from him. I have a big frame and I think I can play linebacker as well as safety. Honestly I'll play anywhere a school wants me to play, I'll do whatever gets me on the field."

Scott said he may attend USC's Rising Stars camp this week if he can get down there for a ride and will definitely be going to Washington for the Huskies camp.

"That's the plan for me right now," Scott said. "I would like to get to the USC camp and then my coach and I are flying out to Washington for their camp. I'm looking forward to getting out to Washington and seeing something new. They haven't offered yet but have been recruiting me for a while so hopefully it happens for me."
