2013 Intro: Brenton Scott

His twin brother is committed to Purdue, but for Brenton Scott he is taking his recruitment at a slower rate.

Life as a twin can get very competitive, especially when the two are both very impressive basketball players. Brenton Scott he goes against his twin brother Bryson Scott every day, and now he is beginning to take his game to the next level.

For Ft. Wayne (IN) Northrop High School this has been an excellent season, and one that isn't over. Behind the leadership of Brenton and Bryson, they were able to come home with a sectional title, and now are preparing to go even further in the tournament.

"The sectional championship was good," said Scott. "We have been working hard all season so it felt good to get a little payoff and win a championship."

About his own play this year, Scott said, "This season has been up and down at times, but overall I have done pretty well. My game is coming around in terms of shooting, and then on the defensive end I have been playing well."

The one thing that stands out about Scott is his competitiveness and toughness on the floor. Some of that comes from going against his twin brother every day.

"We are really competitive against each other," said Scott. "Sometimes we are too competitive and try to fight each other, but it helps us get better and gets us ready for the next level."

After receiving mostly MAC and Horizon League interest at the beginning of his recruitment, Scott says that a pair of schools are now beginning to show significant attention to him.

"Xavier is taking a big interest in me and also Butler seems ready to make an offer," said Scott of his recruitment. "Those are the two schools that I have been in contact with the most."

One interesting factor in this recruitment is that Scott's brother Bryson is already committed to Purdue. Early on the twins said they didn't have to play on the same team at the next level, but that is always subject to change.

"I haven't really thought about it too much," said Scott of teaming up with his brother at the next level with the Boilermakers. "I honestly don't know how that will go."

For now Scott is taking it slow, and is no hurry to make a college decision. He is simply looking for the right fit for him.

"I pay attention to what kind of program a school has," explained Scott. "I look at playing time as a freshman and also the role I would play within the team for my career."
