The latest from Lexington guard Cam Scott, including a commitment timeframe GamecocksSPORTSTALK / May 5, 2023
6-4 Cam Scott of Lexington has been one of the heaviest recruited prospects in the country going on two years now. His offer list includes USC, Clemson, LSU, Tennessee, Miami, Alabama, Missouri, Oregon, Florida State, Auburn, Pitt, Georgetown, Texas and Kansas.
Last year, he narrowed his list to USC, Tennessee, Kansas, Florida State, Auburn and Texas. He also made official visits to USC, Auburn and Texas, and unofficial visits to Duke and Tennessee.

“Me and my family decided to open back up my recruitment because I’m locked in on the moment,” Scott said. “With all the continuous sports going on back-to-back to back-to-back, we didn’t want to have to lose focus on that to make a decision. We are going to focus on making the decision towards the end of Peach Jam (July 3-9).”
Scott has an off weekend on the AAU circuit this weekend. There’s an event in Dallas on May 12th and one in Memphis two weeks later. In last weekend’s event in Phoenix, Scott averaged 14 points and 6 rebounds per game. Around his basketball schedule, Scott plans to work in some more official visits.
