New St. Paul running back Kurt Scoby has gotten his first college offer from Oregon St.
Scoby, who transferred to St. Paul last week after a brief stint at Duarte this spring and playing the last two seasons at Charter Oak, will be a junior this season.
Scoby ran for 1,572 yards and 21 touchdowns last season.
Aram’s take: That was quick. Good for Scoby. And if he keeps balling like he did last season, Oregon St. won’t be his last offer. Also, as I’m finding out, new Swordsmen head coach Elijah Asante is uber-aggressive with the college recruiters. There seems to be a new one coming in and out of St. Paul every day. Nevada was there on Tuesday. Miami Fla. will be there on Friday. I know recruiters have been making their rounds other places, but Asante is reported to have a good connection with many of them from his Carson days. This St. Paul program is having one of the better offseasons around and we’ll see what exactly that means this fall.
