Terence Scott is Sought After

College of the Canyons (Calif.) receiver Terence Scott (6-0, 175) has no complaints with the way things are going in his recruitment. "You know, it's going alright," said Scott. "I can't complain about it."

And there is no reason to, as Scott has four offers early on.

"Kentucky, Troy State, Arizona State and Oregon State have all offered," said Scott.  "I get a lot of interest from LSU, South Carolina, Washington, Auburn, Missouri and USC has been in communication with me."

Scott came west from Knoxville (Tenn.) Central, and so far, he's enjoying the west coast; enough to possibly stay here if the right offer came.

"I love it on the west coast.  I'm not going to be upset if I stayed here.  I could go back home too.  Either way, I'm going to be happy," said Scott.  "California, everything is good though.  The people out here go about their business.  And like the song says "I wish they all could be California girls."

Following his prep career at Central, his lone offer was from D-II power Carson-Newman, though Marshall nearly offered before it looked like Scott wouldn't qualify.

After not qualifying but wanting to keep his college football career in reach, Scott moved west to Canyons and it didn't take long for him to make an impact.

"On my first play of the game, as a freshman, we get the opening kickoff and go out at the 20.  First play, I take an 80-yarder for a touchdown.  The next time we play them (Chaffey), I do it again on the other side of the line of scrimmage," said Scott.

That was a reason why his stats were impressive in 2005, which had him over 1,000 yards and scoring nine touchdowns.  Which is putting him in position to keep playing.

"A year ago, I didn't know where I was going to end up, what I was going to do.  Not, I'm just going to stay healthy, keep the grades up and play ball," said Scott.

He also has great speed, running a self-reported 4.38 and being called by one magazine as the holder of "NFL speed."

Scott will graduate in December and will have three years to play two seasons.

While he is planning to make a decision in time to be on a college campus by January, where it will be won't be known anytime soon.

"With my trips, that is something I'm thinking about.  I may end up taking some official visits or whatever, or I may make a decision, to where I want to go as our season starts to wind up," said Scott.
