JEFFERSON - Justin Scott-Wesley proved with his 10.35 100-meter win that he's the fastest high schooler in Georgia.


Today he’ll have a chance to prove the claim in the 100 and 200-meters at the state track championships.


More importantly long-term, he’ll also make a decision in terms of where he’ll play football at the college level. The one-time Stanford pledge, Scott-Wesley opened his recruiting back, but plans to end the contest for his services today, with four schools still in the running.

“I’ll say Stanford, they’re still in it,” he said Friday after posting one of the top times in the 100-yard dash at the Georgia High School Track and Field Championships. “Wake Forest, Georgia and South Carolina.”

Scott-Wesley, a receiver from Mitchell County, initially committed to Stanford, he said, because of the academic prestige that accompanies the degree obtained. Distance from home made him rethink his firm commitment.

“I really just didn’t look at it from the whole standpoint of living out in California, and being so far away from my family,” he said.

Scott-Wesley has taken time to figure out what he’s actually looking for in his college destination.

“I think me just feeling comfortable around the coaches, around the players, and everybody wants playing time,” he said. “I just want a position to come in and compete with.”

And with athletics and academics keeping him busy, Scott-Wesley is looking forward to making his decision permanent, and focusing on his final year competing, and learning in high school.

“It’s a pressure release, because I don’t have to worry about the stress of what college I’m going to, and I can just focus on hitting the books and getting ready to finish strong my senior season,” he said.
