This week Texas A&M’s coaching staff found out something it was likely fearing for awhile–four-star linebacker Hoza Scott will need to go the junior college route instead of coming to College Station this year.
Scott is a 6-foot-2, 225-pound prospect out of LaPorte (Texas). He helped comprise that core of stud recruits who made a splash and committed to the Aggies very early in the process, late in 2012. How good is Scott? So good that Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Notre Dame, Ole Miss and Texas offered scholarships early on. It turns out though that Scott will need to get some work done in the class room before playing BCS-level football–but the door should still be open for him at Texas A&M.
Scott is already on board with Kilgore Junior College in Texas. Michael Mathis, a Kentucky commitment for 2014, is also from this JUCO.
The Aggies now have 20 commitments on board, with six already on campus. Expect another pickup or two before national signing day.
