Scott 100% to Sun Devils

The Anaheim (Calif.) Magnolia safety, Jamal Scott, said he's 100% committed to Arizona State...

Anaheim (Calif.) Magnolia bested Anaheim (Calif.) by a score of 35-14 on Friday, extending their record to 4-0 in league. After a slow first half, the Magnolia defense came out strong with a pick-6 from senior defensive player Jamal Scott, and was dominant from then on.

"When we came out the second half, I got that pick-6 and it seemed like everything on offense clicked and picked up from first half," said Scott. "I told the guys at half that I knew we should be winning by a lot so I told them to keep our heads straight and get back into the game and that's what happened."

Scott, was equally dominant on both sides of the ball, and scored three touchdowns on the night off of rushing, receiving and an interception. He led the team to 21 un-answered points, completely shutting down Anaheim's offense.

Amidst several offers, Scott verbally committed to Arizona State back in August, and so far has been confident in that decision.

"After the game tonight, I heard that ASU got the win over WSU so I'm pretty happy about that because it brings their record to 6-2 on the year so far," Scott said. "It makes me excited to think about the prospect of me playing in that uniform next year. I talk to Coach (Chris) Ball weekly and we talk about how I would fit into the defense really well, and I agree."

Scott has already taken two unofficial visits to ASU this season, but plans to take his official visit in January.

"My official visit was originally planned for January 17th, but that has been changed now to January 10th, so a week earlier," said Scott.

Although verbally committed, Scott is staying open minded.

"So far I am committed 100% with ASU, but you never know, I always keep my options open, but right now I am 100%." said Scott.

"The recruiting has been pretty slow this season, the reason why is I was trying to put out a mid season highlight, but now probably at the end of this year I'm going to put out a highlight and my coach said it should pick back up." he said.

In the meantime, Scott is keeping in touch with fellow ASU commits from the 2014 class.

"Everyday on Twitter I hit up Manny Wilkins, Coltin Gerhart, and people like that. We just got our new commit D.J. Calhoun as well so that is pretty cool, they're good guys and tough competitors." he said.

For now, Scott remains focused on the rest of the season and helping his team succeed.

"I'm happy with our team this year, we're already in CIF but we're trying to win league, I'm trying to help us go as far into CIF as possible so, it will be great," Scott said.
