Late last month CB Dontae Balfour of Starke, FL and LB Tavareon Martin-Scott of Dodge City JC, KS confirmed their interest in committing to USC later in the year. Tuesday night OL Kamron Scott (6-5 302) of Converse, TX confirmed the same line of thinking. Unlike the other two, Scott has a commitment date set for October 24th.
USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford has been recruiting Scott, and he said he’s let Wolford know the deal.
“Getting ready to make a decision here pretty soon and I let them know that they were number one on my list for sure. Ole Miss and Colorado are pretty close to them, but they’re leading the way right now. That’s about it,” Scott said. “I’ve been talking with Coach Wolford more recently, and he and I are just building our relationship more each and every day. He says he likes how physical I am, I’m pretty athletic and just the right fit for the program.”
The others in his top six are SMU, Houston and UTSA, where he was committed until June. Scott said what has separated the Gamecocks from the rest is what he feels Wolford brings to the table.
“His experience with different offensive linemen over the years,” Scott said. “He’s sent over 30-something offensive linemen to the NFL. That’s really major to me because I know I can go there to him and he can get me in the right place I need to be. And the whole city and everything. I’ve seen the dorms and stadium. Columbia itself is a good city to live in.”
Will Muschamp, Scott said, has also picked up his contact with him of late.
“He will text me every morning,” Scott said. “When I wake up, he’s sent me some quotes for the day to get my head put on straight. He’s been texting me a lot lately.”
Scott is a native of Thomasville, GA and still has family in Georgia. First year Gamecock offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, who also is from Thomasville, got the ball rolling for the Gamecocks with Scott and they offered in mid-July.
Scott is rated as a three-star prospect in the 247Sports Composite and is ranked the #58 guard nationally.
