DB James Scales (5-10 185) of Greensboro, NC has received several offers and is hearing from many other schools. He has offers from Oregon, Louisville, Duke, Kentucky, and Ohio and is expecting offers from Colorado and Wisconsin next week.
Scales is also hearing from Clemson, USC, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, NC State, and Wake Forest. He was able to take in junior days at USC, Louisville, Georgia Tech, NC State, and Wake Forest.
Scales said Louisville stuck out. "They have great facilities," he said. "They're state-of the-art. I haven't seen facilities like that anywhere."
He also enjoyed Columbia. "It's not too big there," said Scales. "It's pretty rural like I'm used to here in North Carolina. The coaches made me feel at home. They all have southern accents like I'm used to."
Never miss a local story.
He says he is favoring Kentucky and Oregon right now. "They play a lot of defensive backs with five of six on the field," said Scales. "That gives me a better to chance to play early and earn more playing time."
Scales had 80 tackles, three sacks, and three interceptions as a junior. This summer he plans to visit Oregon, UCLA, Stanford, and California.
