Lindsey Scott maintaining level head on recruiting trail

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Zachary High quarterback Lindsey Scott has had a busy week. Previously committed to Syracuse with minimal interest from local FCS schools, he now stands uncommitted with suitors lining up for a chance to make their pitch.

Sunday, the Louisiana Gatorade Player of the Year de-committed from Syracuse, sparking speculation that Tulane would be the frontrunner for his services, given his fit in new head coach Willie Fritz's offense and the fact that Scott was one of the first scholarship offers extended by the new Green Wave regime.

On Tuesday, Scott got an offer from LSU and is now set for an official visit to his hometown college the weekend of Jan. 29.

While Scott's future is in question, his perspective remains level-headed.

 "It's kind of like dating almost. Sometimes you find the right girl and sometimes she breaks your heart. It's a roller coaster, and a roller coaster is worth the ride," Scott said. "The school that notices the hard work, not just the tangibles. They notice the things you do in the background. The late nights, and the hard work and the times when you just kind of broke down. When a school recognizes that, that's when they know they recognize the real man."
