Arkansas Taking Long Look At Scott
Edmond Santa Fe guard Curran Scott (6-4, 193), who plays for the Nike Team Texas AAU squad, was in Fayetteville to look over the Razorback program and told that Arkansas coaches are interested in seeing him play again in the July live evaluation period.
"It was great to get over there and see everything that Arkansas has to offer and I left very impressed with the coaches, the facilities and the direction the program is headed," Scott said. "I think (Razorback head) Coach (Mike) Anderson really has the program ready to take off."
Scott, who averaged 22.1 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3 assists last season, has an offer from Central Arkansas and is beginning to get interest from larger schools such as Arkansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and Tulsa.
Arkansas assistants coaches Melvin Watkins and Matt Zimmerman have been in contact with Scott lately.
"Coach Watkins and Coach Zimmerman have stayed in touch the last couple of months and wanted me to get over and check everything in Fayetteville," Scott said. "I was able to get over there Thusday and really enjoyed taking everything in."
He got a chance to tour Bud Walton Arena, see plans for the new practice facility and played pick-up games with the current Razorbacks.
"The arena is great and the players were very intense and very competitive in practice and in the weight room," Scott added. "That was great to see because that's the type of guy that I am. I also got to see the plans for the new practice facility and it looks great."
Scott shot 49 percent from the field and 33 percent from beyond the 3-point and prides himself on his aggressiveness.
"The strength of my game is that I like to attack the rim and have a very good mid-range game," Scott said. "I like to get in the lane and make things happen with my athleticism and my size. I am still working on my 3-point shot and want it to be more consistent."
Arkansas is among the schools anxious to see Scott play in the July open evaluation period.
He'll play in tournaments in Dallas, Anaheim and Las Vegas.
"They didn't offer me, but told me they were very interested and were going to be watching me during July," Scott said. "They are a couple of other schools – Texas Tech and OU – have both said the same thing and have been talking to me a lot lately."
