Patience Pays Off For Scott

Kenneth Scott, the 6-3, 190-pound wide receiver prospect from Ontario (Calif.) Colony, was being patient, waiting for college coaches to check him out during the May evaluation period. He told us how that patience has paid off...

Things appear to be picking up for Ontario (Calif.) Colony receiver Kenneth Scott (6-3, 190).

Scott picked up his fourth offer on Monday, and also had a few schools in to visit the Colony campus to watch him practice.

"I got offered by San Diego State," said Scott. "I called Coach (Rocky) Long after practice, and he offered me. It was unexpected, but I was excited about it."

While San Diego State didn't come by the school on Monday, there were a handful of others there to watch Colony.

"A lot of schools came to my practice to watch me, like Coach (Reggie) Moore from UCLA, and then coaches from Fresno State, San Jose State and Washington," said Scott. "In fact, Washington sees me more as an athlete. They like me on both sides of the ball."

While most of the attention for Scott has come as a receiver, Washington was the first to express interest as an athlete, and a potential move to defense down the line. And Scott is fine with that.

"To me, it doesn't matter what position I play," said Scott. "I'm just trying to get in early and be successful. I'm feeling more wanted now, too, and I'm just blessed with every offer I get. I feel like people had been sleeping on me lately so I have to break out."

Scott now has offers from San Diego State, UTEP, Colorado State and Idaho, and more schools are inviting him to their camps, where good showings could be fruitful.

"I'm heading to Washington, Washington State, UCLA and the USC camp and then possibly San Diego State now," said Scott.

Scott also has gotten good feedback from more schools and their plans to come by Colony the remainder of the spring. "Honestly, I don't even know what school is coming by next, they kind of just show up but it's been pretty exciting," said Scott.

Scott earned All-Underclass Honors at the Combine in Los Angeles last year and will be back there next weekend.

As a junior, Scott caught 31 passes for 655 yards and five touchdowns.
