College of DuPage QB Evan Scales is considering whether to return for his sophomore season or possibly sign with a four-year school

College of DuPage QB Evan Scales (6-2, 205) had a very good redshirt freshman season and hopes to find a place to play this fall, however, he is willing to return for his sophomore season if the right opportunity doesn't present itself...

"Right now, I don't have any offers," Scales told recently. "I have had some interest from North Texas and Tulane, but so far, no offers."

As a redshirt freshman this past season, Scales played sparingly, completing 27 of his 41 attempts for 344 yards and three scores while rushing for nearly 100 yards and another score.

"I can definitely make plays with my feet," Scales said. "Now, that might be extending a play or just me running. Whatever it takes to give my team the best chance to succeed, I will do it."

This offseason, Scales has been hard at work in the film room, studying his game as well as defenses.

"I want to make my reads faster. That might mean that I need to make my reads quicker during a play or pre-snap," Scales noted. "I also can get lazy with my feet sometimes because my arm-strength can make up for it, so I want to keep working on my mechanics and being sound all of the time."

As a prep at Lafayette High School in St. Louis, Missouri, Scales was a big-time player, but he went unnoticed in the recruiting cycle, so he opted to head to DuPage to get some more looks.

"I was a qualifier, so it wasn't grades," Scales said. "I was underrecruited, I had no offers, so really, my only shot was to go the JC route.

"DuPage was close and they offered the same level of competition as any other school and I liked the staff here."

Scales can leave right away and if he signs with a school, he will have three years to play three starting this fall. will continue to keep tabs on Scales' recruitment and we will update news on him as it happens.
