Biography: Full-time starter the past two seasons and an All-Conference choice as a junior. Played in nine games as a senior finishing with 116/542/4 on the ground before suffering a fractured clavicle, which sidelined him the rest of the year. Junior rushing totals included career numbers of 217/1174/18.
Positives: Strong interior running back who picks up the tough yardage. Displays solid running vision, sidesteps defenders in a small area, and shows a burst through the hole. Gets a lot of momentum going when he squares his shoulders and then turns north/south, breaks tackles or picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Also displays the ability to weave through traffic and find the running lanes. Rarely brought down by the first defender. Gives effort as a blocker.
Negatives: Lacks the speed and agility to turn the corner. Cannot beat defenders into the open field or run to daylight. Clavicle injury must be checked out.
Analysis: At the top of his game, Scott is a terrific prospect for a power running offense that prefers to pound the ball on the inside. He offers starting potential if he gets back to health and shows durability.
