Cam Scott, one of the top uncommitted guards in the 2024 class, is in the final stretch of his recruitment.
The 6-foot-5 shooting guard out of Lexington (S.C.) High tells On3 he will announce his college decision on August 11th choosing between Alabama, Auburn, Ole Miss, Oregon, South Carolina, and Texas. His decision will be made live on the On3 YouTube Channel at 2:00 p.m. ET.
Scott is the No. 24 overall prospect and No. 7 shooting guard in the 2024 cycle, according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also the No. 1 player in South Carolina.
The four-star guard was able to take official visits to four of his six finalists. Auburn, Oregon, South Carolina, and Texas have each hosted him on campus.
Cam Scott talks finalists
In previous interviews with On3, Scott discussed each of the schools contending for his commitment.
Alabama: “I like their play style and how Coach (Nate) Oats likes to run his team. I feel like that could be a perfect situation for me. I feel like it’s a good spot where I could get better and get me prepared for the next level after college. Watching them play this season, I feel like I can shoot the ball pretty well. They like their longer wings and bigger guards, and they play the floor very spaced out. They tell me that with my athleticism and my shooting ability, I would be a great fit there.”
Auburn: “I love Auburn. I’m not even going to lie to you. Being down there, it was a really comfortable environment. Talking with the coaches, they’re all friendly. Some of the players getting recruited by them are already hitting me up, guys who are already committed, telling me Auburn is the place. I get probably three of four DMs a day telling me to go to Auburn.
Ole Miss: “Being recruited by multiple coaches there, at their previous schools before Ole Miss, I feel like it could be something special for me. I want to go in there and see how they put all that together and what they are working on for that program to look like. I built a relationship with Chris Beard while he was at Texas and Wes Flanigan when he was at Auburn.”
Oregon: “The chance to get better there is probably one of the greatest things I’ve seen. It’s in the Northwest and far away from a lot of places, especially for me. There are not many distractions there. All the resources they have throughout the campus was impressive. Just going through and looking at the stuff they have for football, the nutrition and strength stuff, what they have for basketball, every athlete, in every sport, they have something for you to get better. Being around so many top-tier athletes on campus is something special.”
South Carolina: “South Carolina is like 25 minutes from my home. That would be a big impact for me. It would be really meaningful to have a lot of people I know coming to my games and supporting me. That is something I would be interested in.”
Texas: “Coach (Rodney) Terry was one of the coaches I felt really comfortable with on my official visit. He was an honest coach, so I felt like we had that bond. Some of the coaching staff is still there, and some of the players are still there, so I feel like it is a lot of the same there.”
Cam Scott is a lengthy wing prospect with a lot of pop. The natural tools are very impressive all the way around. Scott has a mature game, plays within the flow of the offense, rarely forces things. The jump shot release can be cleaned up a little, but the pull-up is smooth. Since the summer, Scott has developed his footwork and handle in the half-court, creating space to elevate into his jumper. Scott can take over a game carry his team. Would like to see him develop the comfort to take a more aggressive, alpha role on his teams. He is very efficient in his game, his ability to score with a less is more approach is mature. Strength will come, and he is tracking as one of the top players in the 2024 class. – On3’s Jamie Shaw
