Scott now considering four

For most of the summer RB Derrell Scott of Havelock, NC has had USC, Ohio State and Florida State as his top three. But his coach said Tuesday night NC State has become a major player for Scott.

"They've done a great job recruiting him and he's always liked them," Jim Bob Bryant said. "Their running backs coach has done a great job recruiting him."

Scott will visit NC State in the next couple of weeks according to Bryant. He went to Ohio State for a camp and also visited Florida State this summer. His coach does not expect him to be able to make USC's camp this month.

Scott will take all of his official visits and probably have a decision after his season. "Those four are his top four and those are the guys that have the best shot at him," Bryant said.
