DAYTON, Ohio – Decision Day is closing fast for Springfield (Ohio) cornerback Aaron Scott with a July 30th date on the books with finalists of Ohio State, Michigan and Oregon.
The four-star corner took part in a Dayton-area 7-on-7 event on Tuesday afternoon and found most teams showing him the greatest form of respect by not throwing the ball his way. It is all a day at the office for one of the nation’s top cornerbacks.
Many pundits have Scott as the top player in the state of Ohio and one of the top corners in the nation, a prize for any program that is pursuing him heavily.
A decision date would indicate that a decision has been made, but if you listen to Scott, that is not the case, and he is waiting for that moment. Will it be as simple as waking up one morning with the clarity of a decision?
“I hope so, I have bene waiting for it,” Scott said. “I have been praying on it.”
At the Tuesday event, Scott was seen wearing a lot of Michigan gear including shoes, gloves and a hat at the end of the event. He says that he wants to shock the world and that certainly would shock Ohio State fans who have felt that Scott will stay home.
But Scott did admit that it just matched his high school colors and there was no real intention to deceive with any outfit choices.
“I know what I need going to college,” Scott said. “I don’t pay too much attention to the outsiders.”
When it comes to the Buckeyes the current members of the recruiting class have been relentless getting into his ear, including the Armstrong Twins as well as recent corner commit Bryce West. But Michigan’s class has done the same thing as well as peer recruiting is here to stay.
