Running back Derrell Scott of Havelock, N.C., named a top four of USC, Florida State, NC State and Ohio State.

He has USC and FSU in a close battle for his leader.

"I have a clear one-two: It's South Carolina and Florida State," he said. "It's hard to say who is first right now. NC State is third and I would probably put Ohio State in my top four."

Scott visited all four campuses this summer for camps.

"I enjoyed USC, but it was really more for my parents," said Scott. "The coaches wanted my parents to come down and see the campus. We got to see where we would stay and stuff like that."

He plans to take several visits during the season, including official visits. Scott is unsure of all of the official visits he would like to take but said he would definitely take one of those visits to USC.
