WR Zavier Scott from Germany turning heads at U.S. college camps

Zavier Scott and a number of other European players are touring U.S. schools with Premier Players International. Each one of the players has had an offer. One of the first stops was Ohio State University. Here is what Landof10.com had to say.

It’s weird to say that you need to pay attention to a German football player and not be talking soccer, but that’s the case right now.

Zavier Scott has family ties to Ohio — both of his parents from the Buckeye State — but that family is a military family and is currently living in Germany. On Tuesday, he and a group of Europe’s best high school prospects made a stop in Columbus, the first of a handful of college camps they’ll attend.

The 6-1, 198-pound Scott ran a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash and opened the eyes of the Buckeyes and others.

“I talked to [Ohio State assistant coaches Kerry] Coombs and (Greg) Schiano,” Scott told Land of 10 following the camp. “Coach Coombs said they are officially recruiting and Coach Schiano was asking me about myself.”

Scott said he was confident he’d have a good camp.

“I came in telling myself that I was going to impress,” he said. “I was coming in to impress Ohio State. Ohio University said they’ll probably offer me.”

Ohio did.

And so did Syracuse

This though, is where things get interesting. He just graduated from high school and could be eligible to play as a 2017 signee. But he says he’ll end up in the 2018 class as academic details gets sorted out. For now, he’s a 17-year-old spending much of June in the United States before heading back across the pond.

“I’ll be going to camps until June 23,” he said. “Then heading back to Germany. I’m hoping for a scholarship.”

Michigan will host the European group on Saturday.
