Will Muschamp is known as a coach that never gives up on a recruit despite a player being committed elsewhere.
Muschamp is still actively recruiting Tarpon Springs (Fla.) East Lake receiver Artavis Scott.
With Florida having an open week last week coaches were able to hit the recruiting trail to visit prospects, including the 5’11″, 180-pound Scott.
“Coach (Joker) Phillips came by to see me on Thursday at our game,” Scott said. “He made it right around the time we were going on the field and I spoke to him. It was pretty nice to see him out there. It’s nice to see them still recruiting me. “
Scott committed to Clemson back in July and despite Florida’s efforts to sway him, he says he’s still solid to Clemson.
“I talk to Clemson every day and Florida sometimes,” Scott said. “I’m a solid commit. I don’t think anything will change but you never know, something could happen.”
For Scott, he hasn’t taken many visits since committing to Clemson this summer but says there’s a chance he will visit Florida.
“I don’t know if I’m visiting Florida this weekend or not yet,” Scott said. “I don’t have any other visits right now. I just go day by day really with visits.”
With unofficial visits being up in the air, you can imagine that Scott hasn’t set any officials yet but he says if he does, he will talk to Clemson about them.
“I don’t know where I’m going on my officials,” Scott said. “I really don’t know if I’m going to take one to Florida or not but if I decide to, I will have to make sure it’s OK with Clemson but I doubt they would be so I don’t know.”
