The secret is out. There's plenty of talent in the Inland Empire area of Southern California and was showcased on Saturday at San Bernardino Valley Junior College. One player from the class of 2010 was very impressive and it is a sure bet that wide receiver Kenneth Scott (6-3, 185, 4.7) from Ontario (Calif.) Colony will be highly recruited when it comes to being his turn a year from now.
Though it is early in the process schools such as a USC, Arizona State, Colorado State, Utah and Fresno State are already showing interest in the talented junior to be wide receiver.
It's not a mystery why Scott he has been playing football all his life with players who have gone off to the D-I level.
Scott has gone up in practice against the likes of cornerback Omar Bolden who started as a true freshman for Arizona State, cornerback Daniel Simmons who just signed with Washington State and linebacker Bobby Wagner who signed with Utah State in February.
Trojan fans will be glad to hear that Scott has been a longtime USC fan and has worked out in the past with Trojan tackle Charles Brown.
On Saturday, Scott displayed skills of a big time receiver running smooth and flawless routes while making grab after grab. He wasn't afraid to lay out for the ball and displayed outstanding leaping ability. He also sported a pair of soft hands.
Scott is an intelligent football player and it is very apparent that he's an outstanding athlete. He also lines up at tight end and plays basketball. Another thing that was noticeable was how tough minded he was.
"I love going over the middle," the thrill seeking Scott said. "If I get rocked, I just get up and do it again. They (he points to his teammates) call me crazy because I love going out over the middle.
Scott is a rarity in that he played on the varsity since his freshman season. As a sophomore, Scott earned second-team all-league after catching 23 passes for 404 yards, averaging 17.54 per reception and four touchdowns.
"Kenneth will be has highly recruited as Omar Bolden was for us out of the class of 2007," Colony coach Anthony Rice said in an earlier interview with Rivals.com. "He started for us since his freshman year and not too many can say that.
"Kenneth has great body control and hands," Rice said. "He reminds me of a young Keyshawn Johnson. He's absolutely fearless over the middle.
"Kenneth and his vertical leap of 38-inches makes him tougher still to cover," Rice said. "There just aren't that many players with his size, speed and athleticism. He is truly special."
