Kenneth Scott Q & A
Talk about your experience at USC Rising Stars Camp
Scott said, "It went well, I met a few coaches and players and got along with everyone. I played wide receiver and a little tight end. Coach Brennan Carroll put me in at tight end for a little bit."
How was the experience at wide receiver vs. tight end?
"Wide receiver went well, I worked with Coach Morton, and I liked the way he coached. I like the philosophy about wider receivers and how he wants them to play. We were doing 7-on-7's and there was a shortage of tight ends. Coach Brennan Carroll said, ‘Kenneth Scott can play tight end,' so I jumped out there and played a little tight end. It went well, because last year (sophomore season), I played a little tight end, I was comfortable."
What players did you meet out there?
You also attended the UnderArmour/Scout Combine, how did that go?
"That went real well, I was chosen as first team all-underclassman. I clocked a 4.7/40 there. The competition out there was really good. I liked the defensive backs there like T.J. McDonald and Cliff Harris, it was fun. I hung around with Morrell Pressley, he's cool, and we ‘clicked' a lot, also hung around with Sheldon Price."
What did you learn at the Scout combine?
"I learned to just ‘play your game.' Don't worry about anything, just play your game. If you worry about what the other guy is doing, you're not going to be on your top game."
Did you go to any other camps?
"I went to the UCLA camp and USC, and I also went to the Inland Empire combine. I also went to the Nike combine at USC. I'm trying to ‘get out there.' We're doing passing leagues throughout the summer."
As an incoming junior, what schools interest you?
"I like a large amount of schools. UCLA, Arizona State, Colorado State, New Mexico, Colorado, Tennessee, Washington, Washington State, USC and Oregon. I'm getting a lot of letters from different schools. Coaches can't call me yet, so I try to contact them."
What is your academic standing?
"My grades are good. I had a 3.0 last semester but I want to get up to a 3.5."
Are you close with any players right now?
"I'm ‘buddies' with a lot of players. Sheldon Price, we always chat. Morrell Pressley, Chris Hill, R.B. Fields, a lot of players, we're real cool, we just ‘kick it.' Price is always talking about UCLA, Pressley is telling me stuff (about USC). With Price at UCLA and Pressley at USC, they're always ‘telling me stuff' (about their schools)."
Is USC your favorite at this time or who are your favorites?
"USC is in the mix, but there are some other schools as well - UCLA, Arizona State, Washington State, Washington, Oregon, basically the PAC-10. I like USC, it's cool, but I'm just trying to keep my options open right now."
