USC Tuesday found another offensive lineman to pursue in the 2021 class. The Gamecocks offered OT Kamron Scott (6-5 302) of Converse, TX. Scott is a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite and is ranked as the #55 offensive guard in the country, though he said he plays and is being recruited for offensive tackle.
Scott said he and the Gamecocks had no prior history until the offer was made on Tuesday
“The first time they talked to me was today,” Scott said. “Coach (Mike) Bobo is from Thomasville, GA, where I’m from. (He moved in the 8th grade) I talked to the head coach, (offensive line) Coach (Eric) Wolford and Coach Bobo. They were talking about how athletic I am, how good I move during plays, and I have pretty good speed. And Coach Wolford, he’s coached in the NFL so he’s pretty good with what he does and everything.”
Scott was committed to Texas-San Antonio but he decommitted in early June as his recruiting stock was climbing. He now has offers from USC, Ole Miss, UCF, Houston, SMU, Tulane, Hawaii, Nevada, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana and others. The Gamecocks, with their offer, immediately became a major contender for Scott.
“They are pretty high on my list right now,” Scott said. “I don’t really know too much about them. I have heard about them throughout the years. I know it’s a good program. They will be in my top five for sure with Ole Miss and UCF. But, I’m waiting for more to come in. FSU and Baylor are about to offer, so them also.”
Scott said he wants to take official visits before making a decision, and he won’t make a decision until the middle part of his season.
