LSU QB commit Lindsey Scott eager to return focus to winning after recruiting whirlwind
The reasons for his eventual commitment to the Tigers, his final scholarship offer, were as varied as the questions he fielded Monday.
Or at least more varied than some fans might have expected.
“The relationship was always great. Coach Cameron kept in touch with us, and he was always there. We built a strong relationship over the past couple summers … I always knew LSU had a great football team and a great football tradition, but the selling point for me was kind of getting on campus and seeing the things I was really impressed with, like the new engineering building that they’re building and the academic foundation that they have over there.
Six Broncos will sign to play college football Wednesday, February 3.
Lindsey Scott, Jr., Louisiana State University
ZACHARY, LA – Since decommitting from Syracuse Sunday, Zachary Quarterback Lindsey Scott has been a busy recruit.
Several Power 5 schools have extended an offer to the Louisiana Gatorade Player of the year like Maryland and Rutgers. But the biggest splash of them all has been LSU extending an offer to Scott Tuesday afternoon.
The 5A MVP, excited about the offer, but not putting the mystique of the hometown Tigers over other schools that have offered him a chance already.
For Scott, his decision will come down to not only football, but a multitude of things that will better his future.
National Signing Day is February 3rd.

Zachary quarterback Lindsey Scott’s big-play ability, other attributes earn him Mr. Football state honor.
Hahnville coach Nick Saltaformaggio wasn’t among the skeptics, especially after his team lost to the eventual 5A state champion Broncos in the quarterfinals.
“Magical … that’s what he was,” Saltaformaggio said. “Lindsey Scott gave Zachary something else a lot of other teams don’t have — a guy who can take over any game and makes plays when it counts.”
Scott was selected as the Class 5A Offensive Most Valuable Player on the Louisiana Sports Writers Association’s Class 5A all-state football team for the second straight season.
Scott was voted the 5A Offensive MVP for the second straight season. He compiled 5,002 total yards and accounted for 61 TDs. Scott’s totals included 3,039 passing yards and 33 TDs and 1,963 rushing yards and 28 TDs.
Zachary placed two other players, offensive lineman Kellton Hollins and receiver Douglas Coleman (1,482 receiving yards, 15 TDs), on the 5A squad.
