Posted March 20, 2013 11:00 pm
Shutdown corners are hard to come by in high school football, but this year Pennsylvania seems to have a few. DeAndre Scott is making the case to be the most elite of them all. Finestpreps.com got a chance to meet up with him to discuss his recruiting and goals for his senior season.
If you don’t know much about DeAndre Scott, just know he is one of the hardest hitting secondary players the state of Pennsylvania has to offer. He will come up and deck a ball carrier or blitz and wreak havoc for the opposing quarterback. He can play with any receiver in the state and make him look foolish. Scott is also a playmaker on offense and special teams as he has the speed and quickness to give defensive coordinators nightmares game planning for him. DeAnde is the complete package at cornerback and his scholarship offers back up what he does on the field.
Scott was a major contributor in Imhotep’s season last year as they made it all the way to the AA state semi-finals. As of now, DeAndre holds 24 scholarship offers, ranging from schools in the Big 12 like Texas, to schools in the SEC like South Carolina. Other schools making an appearance on his impressive offer list include West Virginia, Pitt, Penn State, North Carolina, Nebraska, Miami, and Arizona State. Along the lines of visits go, DeAndre has already taken some unofficials to Penn State, Rutgers, Temple, and plans on going to West Virginia this Sunday. He has yet to attend any junior days. DeAndre said his set of favorites include West Virginia, Texas, South Carolina, Tennessee, Nebraska, and Miami. He says there a still a couple more schools he is interested in and the list is not final.
DeAndre made it clear for his individual goals. “My individual goal is to win states, to push my team to a state championship.” I didn’t even have to ask him what his team goals were.
Imhotep is striving for that state championship. When asked what the team is doing to achieve it, DeAndre answered, “Weve been working out in the morning from 8:15-9:10 every morning, getting stronger and conditioning our bodies, and have been going to skill camps every Sunday, kids on our team get together and work hard every Sunday, doing drills, doing anything to make us better players.”
DeAndre plans to attend some Nike Sparq camps/combines to get his name further out and plans on playing on The Playmakers 7-on-7 team.
DeAndre looks to lead Imhotep to a state championship this year, Finestpreps.com will be keeping up with him and his team to keep you guys updated on how they are doing.
