Class 5A West Jefferson (Harvey, La.) is loaded to the brim with college prospects, including WR Devin Scott. Read further to find out which program is the most recent to offer Scott, a '13 receiver with phenomenal athletic ability. Scott has a teammate, OL D'Aquin Winthrow, who also picked up an offer from the same in-state program.

Devin Scott put his speed on display at the Class 5A outdoor state track meet in early May, finishing second in the 200 meters with a 21.3.*

Scott also took third in the long jump at the state track meet. He was named All-Metro Boys Track Team with an area best of 23-10 in the long jump, an area best of 21.3 in the 200 meters, and he ran a leg on the area best 4 X 100 (41.53) and 4 X 200 (1:26.24) relay teams.

He's being recruited for both football and track, and the UL Ragin' Cajuns offered scholarships to both Scott and '13 offensive lineman D'Aquin Winthrow this week, according to a member of the West Jefferson coaching staff.

Scott and Winthrow (6-5, 275) each have offers from Colorado and Florida International, respectively, and Scott also has a couple of in-state FCS offers from Southern and Grambling State.

In February, FIU signed four prospects from the West Bank of New Orleans - where West Jefferson's campus is located: Darrian Dyson and Leonard Washington (both defensive linemen from Edna Karr), and Marques Cheeks (OL/DL) and Raymond Jackson (WR) of O. Perry Walker.

Colorado has offered West Jeff three-star wide receiver Ronald Lewis, as well. The Buffaloes have been recruiting Louisiana extensively under Coach Eric Bieniemy - who has longstanding family ties to the state.

Bieniemy landed WR/DB Jeffrey Hall out of St. Charles Catholic this year.

The Ragin' Cajuns have several effective recruiters. Highly-respected coach Tim Rebowe does stellar work in Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and the River Parishes - which are sandwiched between those two cities. West Jefferson made an appearance in the first round of the 2011 5A bracket. The No. 30 Buccaneers were ousted, 56-21, by third-seeded Byrd High School from Shreveport.

This fall, West Jeff is expected to pose a serious threat to 5A defending state champion West Monroe. The Buccaneers served notice of their speed at last month's Big Man On Campus 7-on-7 tournament held at Behrman Stadium in Algiers, claiming second place behind only a Louisiana Bootleggers Elite squad that was buoyed by three LSU commits.
