Gideon Scott, a 6-foot-3, 295-pound DT/OL from Mount Zion, GA, hopes to parlay a strong performance at Louisville's camp into a scholarship offer from the Cardinals.

Scott attended Louisville's lineman camp June 2, and acquitted himself quite well.

"It went real good," Scott said. "I went as a defensive tackle and got to do one-on-one drills with the defensive line coach. He said I did really well. I play offensive tackle and guard, and defensive tackle in the three-technique. I think my quickness off the line is my strength."

Scott holds offers from Marshall, Western Kentucky and Miami (OH) and said he's receiving interest from Louisville, Clemson, LSU, UCF and Purdue. Besides Louisville's camp, Scott will participate in South Carolina, Clemson and LSU's camps. He'll also attend the Down and Dirty Camp in Miami, Florida, an invitation-only camp for the nation's best linemen.

"My top three right now is Louisville, Clemson and Miami (OH)," Scott said. "I actually like LSU a lot, too, and I'd have to put them up there also. But I'm really leaning toward Louisville right now. If they offered that's probably where I'd commit."

Louisville assistant Tony Alford is Scott's primary recruiter and sent him a text a couple days after U of L's camp to remind him that the Cards liked what they saw from him on the field.

"I really liked my visit and Coach (Tony) Alford said they were impressed with me at their camp and that I should be getting an offer real soon," Scott said. "He said Coach Kragthorpe watched the film from camp and liked what he saw."

Scott said finding a school where he felt comfortable with his surroundings would be an important factor in his decision-making process. That bodes well for Louisville.

"I just liked the atmosphere and I felt comfortable at Louisville," Scott said. "That's a big thing for me because I want to find a school that I feel like I'm wanted. I only got to see the indoor practice facility while I was there, but the little area I did see was really nice."
