Five-star running back Darrell Scott (6-0, 215, 4.4) from Ventura (Calif.) Saint Bonaventure is busy getting ready for his senior season and that's where his focus is. Scott is getting the kind of attention you would think, the nation's No. 1 rated running back according Rivals.com, would get. He's still very open regarding colleges.
"I haven't narrowed things down at all," Scott said. "It's kind of hard.
"I'm really not paying any attention to recruiting right now," Scott said. "My mind is on my senior season and having fun.
"I'm going to try to put recruiting on the shelf until November," Scott said. "I know it's going to be hard because coaches are going to try and get a hold of me.
"I really don't even care about recruiting," Scott said. "I just want to go out and play some football and have fun.
There is a reason that Scott is so highly coveted and has college coaches working overtime. Though he's only going into his senior season, he already has an NFL body.
While impressing everybody with his MVP performance at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto with his athletic ability and speed, a group of D-I coaches were overheard saying already has a D-I body and then one coached chimed it, Scott looks likes he ready to be a first-round draft choice in the league.
Scott has the goal to help Saint Bonaventure win the state title and for now that is all that is on his mind.
The talented running back will no doubt and much to his chagrin have a hard time with that because getting his signature on signing day could make some coaches career.
As a junior, Scott was an all-state selection after rushing for 3,194 yards and 45 touchdowns while averaging 9.5 yards per carry.
Scott rushed for just under 2,000 yards as sophomore when he rushed for 1,988 and 19 touchdowns with an average of 6.8 yards a carry in 2005.
Besides Scott's rushing talents, he prides himself in being the complete back, one who will block and catch in addition to his running responsibilities.
