Recruiting Update: Scott Burgett

"After having a successful season last year, I believed that I put myself on the map," says Centennial QB Scott Burgett. He talks more about recruiting inside with Scout.com.

Surprisingly the 6-2 205 pound Scott Burgett doesn't hold an offer at this point. It is surprising because he showed great leadership skills in leading Centennial to the state title. His on the field production was outstanding. He was named 1st team all region after throwing for over 2100 yards and 22 TDs. 24-7Football.com catches up with the Centennial QB and chats recruiting.

 

How have you been training for the season?

I train five days a week, I have been training with my team doing lifting, running, and 7 on 7 to prepare for our upcoming season.

What gains have you made in the weightroom and on your forty?

Working with my school's lifting program, I have increased all my core lifts by 30 pounds. I am continuing to drop my forty time with drills on speed, quickness, and agility that I work on daily.

What camps did you go to?

Throughout the spring and summer, I have attended three instructional camps: Nike Sparq Camp at Stanford, ASU Instructional Camp and Elite 11 at UNLV. I received very good instruction from those camps, not only making me a better quarterback, but also a better all-around football player. I also attended the Boise State Camp, in which I worked with Coach Harsin and came out of there a more knowledgeable, mechanically sound quarterback.

Any recent offers?

No offers yet, but I continue to stay in touch with all schools.

What schools would you list as your favorites?

No favorites, but I hear from Boise State, Nevada, ASU, San Diego State, Fresno State, Wyoming, and Air Force. I just recently talked to a recruiter from Hawaii. Nevada's Coach K and Boise's Coach Huff have contacted me the most.

When will you cut down your list or possibly commit?

I would like to commit early if I have the opportunity.

 

Have you set up any trips?

 

No visits are set-up at this time.

What have you learned over the past year in regards to recruiting?

After having a successful season last year, I believed that I put myself on the map. The spring and summer have been a little frustrating for recruiting because I have no offers yet, so I can't wait to get back into pads. I have been getting numerous calls and texts from coaches and they are all nice people and very professional. I am extremely hard working when it comes to football and academics. I've realized that it is tough to get a Division 1 Scholarship, but I have faith in myself and I know whoever selects me, will be happy they did.

What are your goals for the season?

My team goals for this season are to become Region and State Champs again. My personal goals are to throw for 2000+ yards, throw over 30 passing TD's, 5 running TD's, have a 65+% completion rating, and be selected 1st team All- Region and All-State.
