Murray's Scott decommits from Western Kentucky


WPSD Sports

We're about a month away from national signing day, where high school football players make their college decisions official. Murray High defensive end LaBront Scott committed to Western Kentucky close to a year ago. Of course, WKU has a new coach in Bobby Petrino and anytime you've got a new coach, those commitments tend to be on thin ice.
This morning, Scott made it official on his Twitter account writing "No longer committed to WKU."
Scott told us it was Petrino who took the offer off the table. He did admit he was thinking about decommitting himself, but said Petrino beat him to the punch. Scott tore his Achilles back in October, but said he doesn't think that had anything to do with Petrino's decision.
Scott says he still has offers from Arkansas State, Murray State and UT Martin.  Purdue and Middle Tennessee are also now showing interest.
Scott's former teammate at Mayfield, Jonathan Jackson, is about to get very busy in terms of recruiting. Jackson plans to take five official visits this month. He already has them lined up at Murray State, UT Martin and Eastern Kentucky.  Jackson said visits to Kentucky, Louisville, WKU and Arkansas State are still possible.
He said every school he is talking to wants him to play linebacker -- except UT Martin. Jackson says UTM wants him to be a running back. He left Mayfield as the school's all-time leader in tackles and rushing yards.
Jackson says it isn't important what position he plays, he just wants to feel comfortable wherever he goes. He plans to make a decision sometime in early February.
