IT: What was your reaction to Jamaal Charles leaving Texas to declare for the NFL draft?
Darrell Scott: It was big. That was my main concern. I don’t want to sit. I definitely don’t want to sit. I want to start as a freshman and get some playing time. That was huge. It’s out of them and Colorado so far, but I need to take my trips to (Florida) and (LSU).”
IT: What is your schedule for remaining official visits?
Scott: Florida on January 11th and I haven’t scheduled LSU so far.
IT: Are those the final trips you’ll take?
IT: There’s a lot of speculation that you are headed to Colorado. What is your reaction to that?
Scott: I’ve heard so many rumors this year. I just call somebody and put it out there that Darrell isn’t committed to that school.
IT: So why is your name synonymous with Colorado?
Scott: I don’t know. Probably because I have family there with Josh Smith. He’s a wide receiver. They think family comes first so I’m going to go there.
IT: It’s been said that you are recruiting on behalf of Colorado here this week. Is that true?
Scott: (Laughing)…I’ve got this question so many times. No, I haven’t. So many people come up to me and they’re just like, “What do you think about this Colorado team and would you see yourself in a uniform there?” I just talk to those people.
IT: With Jamaal Charles gone, does that make Texas more enticing than Colorado?
Scott: Oh yeah. No doubt.
IT: How did you get the news that Jamaal was leaving Texas?
Scott: Somebody whispered in my ear. I can’t let it out, but I’ve known for like four days and I’ve just been thinking about it.
IT: Have you talked to any of the Texas coaches since Jamaal’s announcement?
Scott: No one so far. I’ve just been busy with interviews here.
IT: When are you going to announce your college choice?
IT: On signing day?
Scott: I am.
IT: So what’s your commitment status now?
IT: What are the pros and cons of Texas and Colorado?
Scott: Colorado, the weather. I don’t like that weather. The pro is I like and have a good bond there. Family comes first, that thing, but I mean way out. With Texas, I just love everything. Really there’s no cons. I love everything about Texas.
IT: What do you think of your official visit to Texas in November?
Scott: I liked it.
IT: While you’re here in San Antonio, are you going to visit Texas again unofficially?
Scott: No, I’m not.
IT: Could that change?
Scott: I’ve got to get home.
IT: Is it really a Colorado-Texas race for you?
Scott: And maybe Florida can hop in the driver’s seat if they show me a good time.
IT: When is the last time you talked to a Texas coach?
Scott: Last week.
IT: Who was it?
Scott: Coach Rucker.
IT: How did that conversation go?
IT: Anything else to add about Texas?
Scott: Stay tuned.
