RB Derrell Scott of Havelock, NC ended his season Saturday with another state championship and then headed to Spartanburg for the Shrine Bowl. Scott has a top three of USC, Tennessee and NC State with Florida State and Auburn also in the picture. He’s taken official visits with the Gamecocks, Vols and Wolfpack and is not claiming a favorite at this point. Scott once favored USC but Tennessee moved up after his official visit there.
DL Arthur Williams (6-5 298) of Fayetteville, NC committed to Florida State in late October and remains so but he plans to take official visits to USC and Miami in January. Recruiters from all three schools have been in to see Williams this month.
