The 6-foot, 185-pound Scott hails from Marion High School (SC) and is ranked 18th in the state of South Carolina and 86th among athlete recruits in 2024 via On3. He holds additional scholarship offers from Appalachian State, Miami (OH), Old Dominion, Troy, and Marshall, among others.
This past season, Scott primarily played wide receiver and running back on offense, racking up 940 receiving yards, 540 rushing yards, and 26 total touchdowns. On defense, he played at defensive back and logged 64 tackles, seven interceptions, and four pass defenses.
Scott camped at UK in early June and earned his offer there. He also logged a 4.4-second 40-yard dash at the camp. He’s projected to play cornerback in college.
