Scoby getting major attention

Kurt Scoby is the focal point of Santa Fe Springs (Calif.) St. Paul's offense and it's even more impressive to know he's a 2014 prospect who's garnering lots of early attention.
Oregon State and Miami have offered the shifty 5-foot-9, 150-pound running back and Scoby said some major programs including Wisconsin, UCLA, Florida State, Arizona State and Nebraska have reached out so far this season.
There is no question Scoby is on the smaller side but he uses it to his advantage running behind his blockers or sneaking out of the backfield to catch the ball and that has attracted a lot of college coaches.
"I'm been doing pretty well," Scoby said. "I'm just trying to get more offers on the table right now.
"It's pretty good. I'm pretty excited to know that many schools are interested."
Oregon State has been the main player in Scoby's recruitment and he said a Beavers' coach is expected to stop by his game Friday night against La Puente (Calif.) Bishop Amat.
UCLA hosts Oregon State on Saturday so the Beavers' coaching staff looks to be doing some recruiting in Southern California.
It's early for sure but Scoby said he has lots of interest in Oregon State.
"I've been hearing a lot from Oregon State," Scoby said. "They really like me a lot. They haven't really been talking to me. They've been talking to my coach and I think they want to come see me against Bishop Amat.
"I like them a lot. I'm showing a lot of interest in them."
Scoby was supposed to attend the UCLA-Houston game last weekend but could not make it to the Rose Bowl. If his junior season continues to go well, the St. Paul standout could be getting invites to many more games the next couple seasons.
