O'Neil Scott, a hard-hitting defensive back for Woodrow Wilson, said yesterday that he had made an oral commitment to Syracuse University.
Scott, a 6-foot-1, 175-pounder, made his decision Sunday, choosing Syracuse over Rutgers, West Virginia and Wisconsin. He had made official visits to all four schools.
"I chose Syracuse because I like the arts program," Scott said. "I'd like to major in visual arts, and I also thought they had a great football facility."
