With a declaration that lasted just a few minutes, East Lake receiver Artavis Scott ended the suspense about where he is going to college by announcing his commitment to Clemson.
Scott, rated a four-star recruit by 247Sports, made the decision on ESPNU, ending a frantic recruitment period that lasted more than a year and included 35 offers from major Division I schools.
Last week, Scott said his decision would come down to six schools: Clemson, Florida, FSU, Michigan, Ohio State and UCF. He narrowed that list down to Clemson, Florida and UCF over the weekend.
“I liked it ever since I went there, and I just think it was a good spot for me," Scott said on ESPNU.
Scott made his commitment at The Opening, a camp held at the Nike campus in Beaverton, Ore., that brings together the best performers from the Nike training camps held this spring.
This past season, Scott had 995 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns despite missing nearly half the regular season because of an ankle injury. In the spring game against Osceola, Scott scored nearly every time he touched the ball, returning two kicks for touchdowns and adding two more on receptions.
Scott’s most recent visit was to Clemson last month. He had planned on attending Michigan’s Big House BBQ next month, as well as touring most of the major state schools with his teammates.
But he decided to end the recruiting process early.
Scott is part of East Lake’s heralded 2013 class that includes offensive lineman Mason Cole (Michigan) and defensive back Devin Abraham (USF).
