Rickey Scott is about to dive into his recruitment headfirst. Thursday he hosted the staffers from…
An Elite Guest
Scott, a 6-4, 200-pound shooting guard from Irving MacArthur, was in Fayetteville for the Arkansas Elite Camp and has an official visit set with the Razorbacks for Sept. 18-19.
"I loved it here," Scott said. "The facilities are great and the coaches showed me a lot of love. It's a great place."
Scott has Arkansas, Baylor, Missouri, Georgetown, Marquette and Texas Tech among a dozen or so schools that have already offered.
"I think OU (Oklahoma) is on the verge of offering me, too," Scott said. "I have some pretty good choices. I think I am going to get with my family and narrow it down to 5 pretty soon."
Scott is coming off a junior season in which he averaged 18.4 points and 6.9 rebounds and watched his number of 3-pointers made jump from 3 as a sophomore to over 40 as a junior.
"I feel really good about driving and getting to the basket because I don't think no one can stop me going to the hole," Scott said. "I need to continue to work hard to be a consistent shooter. I want to continue to shoot about 500 shots a day."
He played for Full Court Athletes on the AAU circuit this summer.
"It went really well and I think I am a much better player," Scott said. "I am really looking forward to going on some official visits, making a decision and then having a great season."
