Scales Switches Focus to Recruiting

Scales Switches Focus to Recruiting

Tegray Scales has not rushed the recruiting process and looked to get things in high gear following the end of his senior season. With a hard fought loss to Moeller on Saturday night, Scales will now look to switch his focus towards finding the school he'll continue his football and academic career with.

With a senior season that saw him earn defensive player of the year honors in Southwest Ohio big school division, Tegray Scales knew he could focus on the recruiting process once his senior season was over. That happened on Saturday night when Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain lost to Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller in the third round of the playoffs.

"I want to get things started as soon as possible," said Scales. "I'm not sure when I'm going to take any official visits, but I want to get started and maybe have things done next month."

With some teams finishing up their seasons this weekend, are there any plans to attend any games for official or unofficial visits?

"Right now I don't have any plans to attend any games this weekend," he said. "I'm still talking with the same group of coaches from Indiana, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Illinois and Ohio State."

While the Buckeyes have not offered, they recently visited school and Scales has talked with the top Buckeye himself, Urban Meyer.

"Coach Coombs recently stopped by school," said Scales. "I've talked with head coach Urban Meyer as well. They have both told me they would like to get me up for an official visit in January."

Does the fact Ohio State has not offered concern Scales with other schools looking for his commitment?

"It does kind of concern me," he said. "I feel the ways they are trying to set it up, they are waiting for another linebacker. If they can't get him to Ohio State, they are then going to try and pursue me. That is why they are late recruiting me. At least that is the way I look at it."

Would the possibility of an offer from the Buckeyes stop Scales from making a decision?

"If I have my decision made up, I've got it made up and will not wait," stressed Scales.

Scales finished his senior season with some impressive stats having posted over 100 tackles with three interceptions and fumble recoveries and seven sacks.
