Scott is targeted by the Rams
Colorado State's staff is making Ontario, Cal. wide receiver Kenneth Scott a priority this year, which could put them head-to-head with such college powerhouses as UCLA, Oregon, Georgia, Oklahoma and Cal, all of whom have been in contact with Scott.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Scott said the Rams are his first offer of the young recruiting season, as they made a verbal offer of a scholarship this week, saying the written offer will arrive soon. The Rams' attraction rests in a combination of production and potential. In an injury-shortened 2008 season, Scott caught 31 passes for 655 yards and five touchdowns. Scott said he played just seven games last season as a sprained ankle limited his time on the field.
The Colony High School's measurables are equally impressive and include a 4.56 time in the 40-yard dash, a 315-pound bench press and a 405-pound squat.
"Basically, I can catch, I have good route running, I am physical and I block real well," Scott said when asked his strengths. "I am a playmaker - I make plays whether I have the ball or I don't."
Scott said Colorado State offensive coordinator Greg Peterson has led the charge to get him into the Green and Gold, while defensive backs coach Larry Lewis is also talking to Scott.
"They (CSU) basically are saying that I am their number one target in the 2010 class and they are going to be headed for me and hope they can pull me out of California," Scott said. "They are real cool. I remember when I went up there last year for camp. All the coaches were real cool. I felt comfortable around them. I talk to Coach Peterson like daily. I am real comfortable with them and so are my parents."
While he has yet to attend any junior days, Scott said he hopes to visit some schools during spring practice, although, with his busy schedule of passing leagues, he wasn't sure which schools he could make it to.
"I am just going to go through the recruiting process and late next year I will start narrowing the schools down," Scott said. "I am looking for in a college - it isn't really an area. Basically, it is if I feel comfortable with the school and if I feel comfortable with the coaches and if my parents like the coaches too."
