The Illinois Fighting Illini extended an offer to 2014 outside linebacker, Tegray Scales, on April 23rd. Scales is a Top 300 recruit based on 247 Sports Composite ranking and is listed as the 24th best outside linebacker.
The Cincinnati, Ohio native has received offers from the Louisville Cardinals, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, and Western Michigan Broncos.
Even though it is still early in his recruitment, Louisville seems to be the team that has separated themselves from the rest of the pack. Scales made a trip with a bunch of his high school teammates to Louisville’s spring game and enjoyed the experience.
The only other team he has visited is the Indiana Hoosiers. Scales visited the Hoosiers on March 28th and he received his offer from Indiana during that visit.
In 2012, Scales racked up 57 total tackles, one interception, and forced three fumbles.
Based on the 247 Sports Composite Rankings, he is currently ranked 15th in the state of Ohio, 24th among outside linebackers, and 276th nationally among 2014 high school recruits.
