Offers are picking up for Stafford (Va.) Colonial Forge cornerback Tim Scott. The 6-foot-0, 180-pounder claims two scholarships and has already visited one in recent weeks.
"West Virginia and Maryland have offered," he said. "I got my first offer from West Virginia and was really excited. I wasn't really expecting it. Then, the second one came from Maryland. They are really close to home and I went on a visit a couple Saturday ago there."

"I think it's a good environment," he said. "It's really diverse which is a plus and the coaches are really positive. They've got a great trainer and good facilities. It was really nice. We went to the basketball game and the students and fan base were really good."
Another visit is coming up for the Commonwealth prospect.
"I'm going up to North Carolina for their junior day on March 27th. I was supposed to go to Michigan as well next week, but I'm not able to."
Plenty of other colleges are taking an interest in Scott to date including Connecticut, Boston College, Temple, Michigan State, Duke and Illinois.
With college interest growing, the Virginia corner is looking for a few things in his future home.
"I just want a good team environment, a good education and somewhere that emphasizes academics over athletics," he said. "I'm not worried about the environment of the campus. I want it calm. I'm also looking at majoring in criminal justice."
Scott helped Colonial Forge to a 10-2 record this past season and earned all-district honors both ways, first team all-region and state at cornerback, despite not being 100%.
"Our team is really starting to come together since we've all been together for three years," he said. "I think I played ok, but I wasn't 100% and I could have personally done better."
Getting looks for both ways, Scott doesn't care which position he plays.
"I always thought I was a better wide receiver and then this past season I played cornerback and I think I'll be a better corner. I will lockdown the wide receiver."
