Brayden Scott would like to be committed somewhere by the first game of his senior season.

That would allow the Sequoyah-Tahlequah quarterback, who is No. 2 on The Oklahoman's initial Super 30 for 2013, to graduate early, start classes at his chosen college in January and participate in spring football.


“That's the plan I'm going for,” Scott said in a telephone interview Saturday evening, just hours after he left Oklahoma's Junior Day. “I'm on the road to graduate early right now.”

Scott (6-foot-2, 195 pounds) said his day at OU was “awesome,” and said he spent about an hour and a half talking with co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel. But he declined to say if the Sooners extended a scholarship offer.

He currently holds offers from Missouri, Arkansas, Clemson, Arizona, Arizona State, Purdue and Tulsa.

Saturday in Norman, Scott met with coaches, hung out with players, toured the campus and walked on the field.

“Just to know that you're on the same playing field as Kenny Stills, Landry Jones, Adrian Peterson, Jason White and Sam Bradford, I take pride in that,” Scott said.

“Every time I leave OU, I feel something special. I dream about what I could do there.”

Scott has attended OU camps since his eighth-grade year. It was then that he developed a relationship with Heupel.

“He said, ‘Hey son, get up here with the seniors,'“ Scott said. “I am the littlest guy, but I'm going against the seniors. Every year since then, I've gone with the seniors.”

Scott went to Oklahoma State's junior day last weekend, and will to Arkansas' next week. He said he'll also visit Alabama, Tennessee and several other schools in the spring.
