Larry Scott worked out with the wide receivers at the Los Angeles NIKE Camp and then with the cornerbacks at the Palo Alto NIKE Camp all in an attempt to improve his skills but also get noticed by colleges on both sides of the ball.
Scott, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound two-star prospect, isn't expected to be a full-time, two-way starter for Corona (Calif.) Centennial when it opens play Friday night against Birmingham Charter but Scott will get his chances to make play all over the field.
That's all Scott wants.

"He's definitely our wide receiver, he's our No. 1 guy, and then he'll play corner in certain situations, nickel and dime situations, for us," Centennial coach Matt Logan said.
"We try not to play kids both ways unless we absolutely have to so that's the situation with him. He's looked really good so far. He looks great. He looks really good. I expect him to have a huge year."
Washington State, Iowa State, Hawaii and some others have shown interest in Scott but he hasn't picked up any offers yet maybe because he missed a good portion of last season with an injury. Scott's hope is that once he can get some senior season highlight film out that some offers will start trickling in.
At the NIKE event in Los Angeles, Scott was one of the top southern California receivers in attendance along with USC commit Victor Blackwell and Encino Crespi's Devin Lucien, who has multiple offers.
In Palo Alto, Scott was in the same group of defensive backs with 2012 standouts Shaq Thompson and Tee Shepard along with James Sample and others. He was a standout at both camps at different positions and now Logan hopes college coaches will take notice to one of his best players.
"What's interesting with him is that he has good grades and a qualifying SAT score, everything is right there," Logan said. "It's just a matter of somebody liking him enough I guess to pull the trigger."
