Will Artavis Scott choose UCF?
By Brent Sobleski
UPDATE: Decision day is here for Artavis Scott (Tarpon Springs, Fla./East Lake). Scott will announce his school of choice this evening during The Opening. A former high school teammate insinuated UCF could be the favorite for Scott's services.
"(UCF quarterback Pete DiNovo) may or may not know what school his former receiver will pick tonight, but he said one thing of interest," Chris Hays of the Orlando Sentinel wrote. "The former East Lake quarterback thinks Scott’s decision will surprise some people."
When a recruit's top three also consists of Clemson and Florida, UCF is the only option to qualify as a "surprise" decision.
Many will expect Scott to name Clemson as his choice, but UCF has certainly made this an interesting recruitment.
Artavis Scott will announce his decision Wednesday at The Opening. Clemson is believed to be the favorite, but UCF can't be ruled out of the equation.
"UCF is ridiculous," Scott told Brandon Helwig of UCFSports.com. "I like it a lot. I have a fun time every time I go down there. I have a blast. It's just really cool."
UCF has the added advantage of Scott's best friend, quarterback Pete DiNovo, already being a part of its roster. It may be enough to sway Scott, and he would become the highest rated commitment in the school's history.

"Michigan appeared to be the front-runner for some time, but a recent visit to Clemson seems to have shifted the momentum to the Tigers."
