McCummings has two options

Quarterback Scott McCummings, one of the top prospects in the Class of 2010 from the state of Massachusetts, holds one scholarship offer but is seriously considering two possibilities.

Until recently McCummings held offers from two schools. That changed, cutting his potential destinations at the FBS level to one.

"I no longer have (an offer) from Syracuse. They took another quarterback," McCummings explained. "I still have an offer from UConn."

Syracuse has received commitments from quarterbacks John Kinder and Jonny Miller, from New York and Colorado respectively.

McCummings should be attending a Football U event in Boston this Friday. Other than that he has been relatively removed from the recruiting process, at least compared to some other prospects who have spent so much of their time driving or flying to various schools.

"I haven't done too much lately," he explained. "Really the only coaches I've talked to lately were from Harvard at their junior day. I talked to their coaches and that kind of opened my eyes to what they have to offer. I'm maybe more interested in them than I was before. I like the school and I like the program. It's more just me deciding which is a higher priority for me -- education or football."

The 6-foot-2, 209-pound quarterback said he is not leaning toward UConn or the Ivy League at this point. He has also been keeping in light contact with Stanford and Rutgers, though he doesn't yet hold offers from either school.

McCummings did say he plans on making his decision before the start of his senior season at Natick, Mass.
