Hurricane Kurt? St. Paul running back Kurt Scoby gets offer from Miami (Fla.) …

St. Paul RB Kurt Scoby got his second offer this week, this time from Miami (Fla.), according to new Swordsmen head coach Elijah Asante.

Scoby now has offers from Oregon St. and the ‘Canes and hasn’t even played a down of his junior season yet.

Scoby transferred to St. Paul recently after a briefs stint at Duarte earlier this spring and two full seasons at Charter Oak, where he rushed for 1,572 yards and 21 touchdowns as a sophomore.

Aram’s take: Wow.

  • JMO

    To bad he won’t play a down his junior year.

  • Best in the Valley in years?

    People have all told me that Scooby would play no higher then D1-AA in College because of his height. Well well well lets just say by his senior year he will be the top running back in the state and top 5 in the country. He has already being recruited nationally. Ha, People make me laugh who doubt Scoob! Hardwork truly does pay off, I can’t see anyone doubting he is the best in the valley now, he could be one of the best Cali has ever seen, he has been recently compared to Maurice Drew, Lamichael James, and Ray Rice (running back for the Ravens) on recent articles about him. JMO stop hating because your son wasn’t very good at football.

  • Best (student) in the Valley in Years?

    He can run a 4.2 forty, bench press 400lbs, have a 50″ vertical….but if he doesn’t do the work in the classroom, he is going nowhere. His poor academics is why he was “court ordered” to move? He doesn’t have anywhere near the core classes he needs to be on track for the NCAA clearing house.

  • Let’s see how things pan out.

    Why is everyone under the assumption that Kurt is a bad student? I don’t think anyone has his transcripts. I am sure some CO people may be spreading rumors he is failing or not qualifying. Why can’t you say “congrats” until the next article comes out saying that he did not qualify… haters geesh Face it the kid is good!

  • Reality

    How could he be passing ANY classes this semester after missing so much school from time he left CO until he showed up at Duarter then left for the Slime? Impossible to have any credits this semester and maintain any eligibility without a hardship appeal

  • Wise One

    The court ordered a move, are you kidding. Maybe the court changed his Foster Parents because, they always bother him as his teachers tried to do. Maybe, the poor poor baby couldn’t do the the hard work they all required to get acceptable grades, and he could get his grades up. (tears running down my face). Look, show up every day on time, do your homework, try half as hard as you do when you are on the football field, use osmosis and suck it up. If not, go take the G.E.D. and pass it, ask to be emancipated by the court,and transfer to a college that will put up with his crap. There are many out there. Then change your name to “A Piece of the World”. Remember there are men at St Pauls that really care enough about him, that can actually bend him over and give him what he really needs. I guess he needs “Father Flarritys” group, of special men, who can legally threaten him with pounding his arms and legs with stakes on to a cross. So, is our public money paying for him at a private school, or is he on a “hip-Scholarship, do to hardship because he is so big and fat nobody loves him? Maybe, USC will take him after he passes his GED. I heard that Charles White had special classes to learn how to print there. Good luck to those who have! Please no more about another athletic prodigy, who more than likely, we will see in a newspapers ports section, local crime being arrested and sharing a cell with O.J., or the obituaries.

  • What?

    NO! NOT “Father Flarritys” group!
    Sounds like a bunch of angry old guys.

  • COChargers

    Congratulations and good luck to you Scoby. Sorry that it didn’t work out for you here with the Chargers Family. St Paul is a fine school and you will get a great education there also. Remember that adults will help you but have to help yourself first. Hope you succeed in everything you do and that grow up to be an upstanding young man. Thanks for the memories. Now go forward and upward.

  • Scoop Jackson

    Boy are you bloggers stupid or what. By pumping up St Paul, Assante and Scoby 24-7 he is just setting you guys up for a fall. No-way Scoby and Assante can live up to the hype Aram is constantly feeding you dolts and when they don’t all the Haters can pile on via his blog with massive hits. I really thought St. Paul people were smarter but I thought wrong. Either way Aram wins.

  • Nate

    Yeah, I call BS on this one… No way this is true. Sounds like this Ashanti guy is just trying to pump up his program for recruits and Aram is falling for it.

  • Realitczech

    Not a chance this is true. If they aren’t talking about it on CaneSports – it didn’t happen. There are two dozen Kurt Scobys in the Cityy of Miami alone and about 50-100 between there and the ‘Glades. if you think any coach is going to piss off his local coaches/recruits by going cross country to offer a questionable recruit and not a sure fire five-star national name – you are nuts and do not undrestand how this recruiiting game works at all.

    Assante is playing ‘yall for a fool and trying to look like he’s the Pied Piper working some magic. It amazes me that this is the blog that celebrates a championship win over a 5 loss San Gabriel team, slams a team for scheduling and shutting out a 6 loss Garfield squad that had Assantes Carson Colts in a 10-7 battle in the 4th quarter. Yet if we listen here Aram acts like he’s the West Coast/HS version of Nick Saban or something. Well, maybe the lying part is similiar.

  • Butt Hurt

    So I liken you to TMZ and you delete my post? You open these doors and welcome in the peanut gallery with your style and approach,then throw a fit when we bag on you. Grow up Aram.

  • Grow up you sad parents

    Look all you overgrown kids, I’ve known Scooby since he was in 6th grade. For a kid to spend almost every year in foster care, show him some leniency! Since his freshman year, I’ve seen him mature and grow as a person. I admit he was immature when he was younger..(as all kids are at a young age) but to be in the spotlight even in Little League its hard to cope. My best advice is stop hating on an innocent kid who will not ever end up close to jail, and just wish him best of luck. As far as his grades, stop stereotyping him because he’s black that he has bad grades. Scooby has a good head on his shoulders and will do nothing more but impress. As a sophomore to put up the numbers he did in the fashion he did, Universities would be crazy to not going after him now. There will always be haters I just wish people didn’t hate on an innocent kid. Oh well, thats the world we live in.

  • Nobody does it better!

    As a parent I appreciate Coach Asante’s effort on behalf of our kids. This is Why Asante is Great,

    All College Coaches come join Coach Elijah Asante for a social event that includes Chicken and Brisket. We will provide each Coach with a Jr and Sr Prospect List that includes, Transcripts, SAT/ACT Scores, NCAA Clearing House, Height, Weight and 40 time measurements and Highlight Video. St. Paul has several Hot College Prospects! This is a “Can’t Miss Event”. Be There!

    Congrats to Scoby!

    I thought I’d also post this news information too if it hasn’t already been reported by the Tribune: Darren Andrews got an offer from Hawaii. Good job.

    Who says the SGV doesn’t have D-1 talent?

  • You’d have to pay me to play at St. Paul, OHH wait..

  • Nick Saban Asante

    Asante is the West Coast/HS version of Nick Saban!

  • Big Dog

    Why was Scoby not accepted at Damien or Bishop Amat?

    What would be his next public school, after this year?

  • who’s the best?

    Nick Saban is the College version of Elijah Asante!

  • Kennedy Bryant

    I hope it works out for you be thankful, remain humble a kid like you deserves some goodness in your life. Keep working hard and let your detractors be your motivation to better yourself and your life. Congrats from all of your friends in Monrovia, Duarte, and CO.

  • Pasadenian

    Its funny how a lot of you people come on here hating on Scoby but i bet if he had landed at your school you would become his biggest fan. Obviously the kid got everyone’s attention some with hate some with love but what great athlete didnt have that?

    Congrats to the slime for landing such a game changing Running back. It doesnt even matter how you got him as long as C.i.F approves him to play then the rest of the haters has to shut their mouths and watch this kid run all over their teams, or out perform the running back on their team if he doesnt play against them and starts to wish they could had landed such an athlete

  • Here’s My question to St. Paul parents?

    You see that your coach is actively and heavily recruiting athletes not from this area, zip code and in some instances, trying to bring athletes from other counties. When your son is replaced by one of these football mercenaries, what will you do for your child, for your family? Since St. Paul High School is no longer respecting the contributions of your child or family, why should you afford them the same respect?

  • concussion-symptoms

    I will tell you what they will do…

    IF THEY WIN: They will praise Asante for the 2 seasons that he is there. They will drink his Kool-Aid and tell all of you that he is the greatest HS Football coach on the West Coast.

    IF THEY LOOSE (and they will): These same parents who are on here saying tat Asante is Saban, that he is doing great things for the St. Paul players, getting them new uni’s, blah blah blah, will turn to blaming the Administration for bringing in a guy who was NOT St. Paul and who did not have the best interests of St. Paul in mind.

    Good Luck with all that St. Paul faithful. Please enjoy “buying’ yourself a 3-7 season!

  • Area Fan

    I get that the kid has bounce from one school to another. I don’t agree with it though. But if he is getting offers from Miami and Oregon State, Congrats!!
    Without a doubt this kid is a good back, and he deserves nothing but the best. Remember he is only a kid and unfortunately he is a victim of his own miss fortune.

  • Congrats SCOOBY

    I found this written about Scooby:

    Miami just offered this morning. Scoby has a chance to be the top RB in the state when he’s a senior an is definitely a very gifted athlete.

  • Pasadenian

    Man what in the world are they feeding that kid. I see why a lot of people would get mad because he didnt go to their school. Im no slime fan but i do respect talent and great recruiting which private schools are allowed to do i mean ever since i played private schools always recruited. so to all the other private schools step your game up you missed out on one. i wonder why he didnt go to Amat though? Isnt Amat one of the top Football programs in the SGV or am talking about the past Amat program.

  • Sgv baller

    Listed At 5″8 215 pounds.just last year he was listed at 170 pounds.thats a 40 pound gain.good thing they don’t test for steroids in high school.

  • Anthony

    Just saw the Scoby on the link from Aram said:..Something is NOT right(how old is he??),look at it yourself. Yes he is very strong,works hard and very well spoken.I have never seen a sophomore so cut and so hard.Look at Aram link and tell us what you think.

  • Scooby Dooby

    Scoby is 5’8″ 185 pounds

  • Would also like to know his birth date, not hating at all, I’ve never seen a 15-16 year old kid w/ that kinda mass.

  • saladays

    I no of one kid who had that kind of mass but was actually thicker in the trunk. And made the same kind of body transition from sophomore to junior.

    Eric Bieniemy

    Many rumors about him at the time. But boy could he play!

  • Scooby’s Got Talent

    They always boost your height and weight on these websites that’s a known fact. Scooby is 5’8 and 185 that’s correct so no there was no 40 pound weight gain. People WHY are you so interested in a 17 year old kid? Get a life and focus on your own kids or focus on yourself. It’s a shame no one can be happy for this kid everyone just wants to find a reason to slam him. Karma is BI$!@

  • Anthony

    Scooby’s Got Talent said: People WHY are you so interested in a 17 year old kid? If you didnt know this this a blog WHAT IS A BLOG?

    A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.

    Your blog is whatever you want it to be. There are millions of them, in all shapes and sizes, and there are no real rules.If you don’t like the comments don’t read them and if anything is said that is over the top whoever s blog it is(Tribune)they would delete them. Scoby has a bright future so get use to the comments his name will be in the news for a long time. PS I’m look forward reading about him.
