Football: Lakewood QB gets USC offer

USC has apparently made the decision that it wants Lakewood quarterback Jesse Scroggins. is reporting that the Trojans made him a scholarship offer after his participation in the Rising Stars camp.

Of course, Scoggins has to make a decision if he'll fit in at USC. He also has offers from Florida and Tennessee.

...and florida's not redneck?

come on. really?

I lived in north florida for 8 years and saw heaps more rednecks in north and central florida then I have ever seen in memphis and knoxville (where I've lived for the past 8 years)...

gainsville = north central florida = deep south = deeper than knoxville

get over yourself.

Tennessee will be behind you???? Is that guy serious? They ran Phil Fulmer, who had like an .800 winning percentage, out of town. They ran Johnny Majors, who is a UT legend and won most of his games, out of town. They ran another coach Bill Battle, who won 70 percent of his games, out of town. And last year, they BOOED the players in several losses --- AT HOME. Yeah, they'll really be behind you --- with a foot on your butt if you don't meet their redneck expectations. UT has one national title in the past 50 years. 50!!!!! and they needed Florida to miss a 30-yard field goal to win it.

Come to Tennessee,Jesse ! USC already is set at QB.And CORCH URBIN MEYERS will lie to you about changing the offense to suite you.The big-headed fans of Florida say they don`t need you,anyway.We NEED you at UT,and will be looking forward to you signing with the Vols.The Vols are on the way back up the ladder.All we need is a great QB,and the offensive linemen will come to UT.Come and play on Saturdays in front of 107,000 screaming,orange-blooded Vol fans !!!


This kid can play some serious ball. USC will be a winner here.


Come to UT Jesse! The playing time is there, the coaching staff is great and will get you ready for the NFL, and the defenses you face week-in and week-out in the SEC will have you better prepared for the next level than if you spend 4 years at USC. UT is where it is at! 104,000 wild screaming fans like me for every home game. 30,000 on the road. We will be behind you 100%. There will be playmakers around you. Too many positives to name them all. All I can say is

It's great...
to be...
a Tennessee Vol!!

Why would any QB want to go to USC? Guaranteed bench time the whole time. UT is the way to go, solid coaching staff, QB coach was Drew Brees' coach, solid supporting cast. Sorry, I love USC but go to Tennessee Jesse


Whatever James, Florida wouldn't lie to anybody about anything. Ya'll are just jealous of the dynasty CUM has created. We don't even need Scroggins. He's better off riding pine behind Barkley for 4 years (which is what he'll do) than going to play at TN.


I'm sure Scroggins is great and all, but honestly we'd rather have a true Florida boy like Tebow or Brantley winning our rings for us down herr!!!!!!


Congrats on the USC offer! That's great news. USC is set for quite a while with Barkley, but Jesse could come in and start in three or four years.

Tennessee is really the place to go. The depth chart is much friendlier, and it's pro style with a coach who was in the NFL.

Also, I hope Jesse doesn't trust what Florida tells him. Remember what Jevon Snead said about how Florida lied to him? Jesse's advisors should make sure that doesn't happen to him.
