ACC offer surprises Scoby

Kurt Scoby had a big-time sophomore season at Covina (Calif.) Charter Oak and he has since transferred to Santa Fe Springs (Calif.) St. Paul where big things are already happening.
The 5-foot-9, 150-pound 2014 prospect already had an offer from Oregon State and in recent days Scoby added another one from Miami.
Scoby, who rushed for 1,572 yards and 21 touchdowns this past season at Charter Oak, said he knows a lot about Miami's history and that the Hurricanes have emerged as an early favorite.
It's still early in his recruitment, though, so Scoby doesn't want to make any decisions yet.
"I'm pretty excited about that," Scoby said.
"One of my coaches talked to their coach and they loved my film. It's really a blessing for them to even watch my film. I guess that made them offer me.
"I know a lot about their history. I know Ray Lewis, I know Kellen Winslow, I know all about 'The U.' I'm really excited about them. It's a favorite."
The St. Paul standout said UCLA is showing some interest but that he hasn't heard from many other schools early on.
Scoby would love to hear from SEC schools - one in particular - and some more Pac-12 schools in case he would prefer to stay closer to home.
"I'd really love to hear from the SEC and Pac-12 schools so I could stay close to home," Scoby said. "I'd really love to hear from Alabama."
