Jamal Scott says everything is pretty much even across the board in his recruitment but that one Pac-12 school stands out a little more since the coaches are paying him so much attention.
"It's all pretty even but I'm connecting a lot with the Utah coaches," Scott said. "I'm supposed to go there on July 22. Utah has been talking to me more out of everybody."
Still, it could be early for the Anaheim (Calif.) Magnolia safety because two other Pac-12 teams are showing a lot of interest in him but have not offered yet.

Scott camped at UCLA earlier this summer and shined at linebacker so the Bruins' coaches told him to remain patient and an offer could be coming.
The other Pac-12 team getting more seriously involved in his recruitment is Washington State and the Cougars could pull the trigger soon.
Scott, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound prospect, said an offer from the Cougars would definitely be taken seriously especially because the coaches have done a tremendous job selling the program to him.
"Washington State is really interested," Scott said. "They've been sending me a lot of letters. They told me Pullman is a great place and I think they're going to start talking, start communicating with me a lot more, and I think they might offer me soon.
"I think Washington State would be a big one. They're a pretty good program so I'm looking forward to that one."
As for UCLA, Scott wants to see what happens there before making any decisions.
"UCLA said to just stay patient," Scott said. "They said they liked me a lot at linebacker at the camp so they said an offer might be coming really soon. It looks like they'll most likely offer me soon."
So far, Scott has been offered by Arizona State, Houston, New Mexico, Oregon State, San Diego State and Utah.
