Scales ready for first WVU visit

Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain linebacker Tegray Scales has seen his offer list run to 15 total schools, and now he looks to do his homework on the programs recruiting him. His next stop will be to see the West Virginia Mountaineers, his first time visiting the program.
"This weekend our quarterback and our cornerback will be headed up to West Virginia's camp," Scales said. "I'm going to go up with them, but I won't be participating. Since I have an offer, I just thought I would go up there and check it out.
"I have watched them in the past, but I don't know a lot about them facilities-wise and their coaches. I guess I just want to meet the coaches and just see how they coach and get to know their personalities."
Scales is being recruiting to West Virginia by assistant coach Erik Slaughter, whom he has met before, but that is the only coach on the Mountaineers staff he has any familiarity with at this stage.
Once Scales raps up his weekend trip to Morgantown, the 6-foot, 205-pound linebacker will next focus on official visits.
"Hopefully I can get out to Oklahoma and a couple more schools for official visits," Scales said. "I will look at Oklahoma's football schedule and try to make a game down there and check out the atmosphere.
"I want to go to Louisville again. I think I am going to go to Bowling Green and Indiana also. I really am not sure where I will go, so that isn't official yet. I don't have a top three yet, but I am getting closer to having an idea. I should be coming out with that real soon."
Scales plans to sit down with his father and look at both potential fall visits as well as his top schools in the coming weeks.
