Scott enjoys visit to ASU

Anaheim (Calif.) Magnolia defensive back Jamal Scott was one of several talented prospects in Tempe over the weekend.

Jamal Scott is one of the top safeties in the West region. He's a physical, hard hitting DB who emerged over the spring as one of the state's top recruits. He has a linebacker frame but runs well enough to play safety and offers the versatility to play either spot in college.

After a handful of unofficial visits, Scott committed to Arizona State last August and was back in Tempe over the weekend on an unofficial visit to see the Sun Devils take on Washington.

"This was my second game at ASU this year, I was also there for the Wisconsin game," Scott said. "So I've seen two pretty good games, the coaches joked that I need to make sure I'm at every home game for now on. It was a great visit, I really like it there and it was cool to meet some of the other recruits that were visiting.

"I love the defense and how they attack and get up the field. They play fast and aggressive and that's what I like most about them. It's funny, my last game, I rushed eight times for 118 yards and now the OC is trying to get me to play offense at ASU but I like defense and that's where I'll be playing."

Following his commitment back in the summer, Scott said he still planned to take some official visits but isn't sure he'll follow through on that.

"I was going to visit Utah and maybe some other schools but I don't think I'm going to do that now," Scott said. "I'm locked in with ASU and I'm very happy with that decision. My official visit is set for (Jan. 17) but I might change it to an earlier date.

"Right now, I'm just happy to be back on the field. I missed all the pre-season with an injury but I've played the last two games and it feels great to be back out there."
