Kurt Scoby was having a fantastic junior season early on but after Santa Fe Springs (Calif.) St. Paul unexpectedly fired its coach mid-season, the 2014 running back decided to transfer.
Because of transfer rules, Scoby had to sit out the remainder of his junior season after going to Los Angeles Cathedral but now the 5-foot-9, 150-pound four-star prospect is settled there and excited for his recruitment to pick up again.
He wants coaches to know where he is and what he's up to as soon as possible.

"It's going pretty good right now," Scoby said. "I'm settling in so it's been good.
"The process is much better. I've let all the coaches know I'm not at St. Paul anymore. I'm ready for it. I'm ready for the task. I'm just ready to get going."
So far, Scoby has landed offers from Miami and Oregon State and new interest is coming in from Boise State, Cal and Nevada.
That is particularly exciting because for weeks Scoby had not been hearing much from the recruiting trail because some college coaches didn't know where he was attending high school.
Because of his switch to Los Angeles Cathedral and since it's still so early in his recruitment, Scoby has no plans to name any frontrunners soon.
Instead, the four-star running back wants to take this off-season, perform well at camps, get his name out there even more and then figure things out later on.
"It's way too early to figure out favorites," Scoby said. "I'm ready for the off-season. I'm super ready, I'm dedicated and I want to get things going."
