Corona (Calif.) Centennial quarterback Matt Scott picked up his first scholarship offer on Thursday. It wasn't just any old offer either as the talented signal caller landed a scholarship from one of the top quarterback coaches in the country.
Scott, 6-2, 185 pounds is just one of a handful of Div I prospects on a pretty loaded Husky squad. Despite playing in a fairly run dominated offense, Scott still completed 132-221 passes for 1,703 yards and 10 touchdowns. He added 536 yards on the ground and seven more scores.
We had a chance to see Scott in action a year ago and were very impressed. He has excellent mobility and a good feel in the pocket. He throws a nice deep ball and is accurate on all his other throws. The QB also tested well at the NIKE Combine in Long Beach running a 4.72-40, 4.22 in the shuttle and jumped 36 inches in the vertical. As for his first scholarship offer...
"Cal just offered me last night," Scott said. "I got a text message from Coach Tedford asking me to give him a call and when I called him up, he said he was offering a scholarship. This is my fist offer so I was excited and when you consider what a great school Cal is and what a great QB coach Coach Tedford is, I was even more excited.
"He said they have only offered two other quarterbacks and one of them has already committed somewhere. Cal is definitely a school I'm excited about but I'm not ready to make a commitment anywhere right now.
"I still want to go through the process a little bit and see what else is out there. In addition to Cal, I'm hearing a lot from Washington, Minnesota and Boise State. I would love to hear more from Arizona and UCLA as well. I'm going to camp at Cal for a day in June and will also attend the NIKE Camp at Stanford in May."
