Ebert Looks to the Next Step

Scotty Ebert's senior season ended three wins short of the championship season he and his Jordan Beetdigger teammates had hoped for. Fortunately for Ebert, he will go on to play another day. The two-way starter will take his game 30 miles down I-15 to Provo where he will suit up for the Mountain West Conference champion BYU Cougars.

Scotty Ebert from Jordan high school was one of BYU's early commitments. Jordan's season is over and Totalbluesports caught up with Scotty.

"We went 8-3," Ebert said. "We went to the quarterfinals and lost to Pleasant Grove."

Ebert said he is now 5-foot-11 and weighs 185 pounds. On the season he had 45 receptions for 730 yards and 5 touchdowns.

"I was just named first team all-region," Ebert said. "My best game was against Brighton, when I had two TDs and one for over 50 yards."

Coach Doman has been the Eberts primary recruiter from BYU and keeps in touch with him regularly.

"I've been to every home game at BYU except one," Ebert said. "The team is really good, and they have a lot of talent."

Ebert said he has definite mission plans and will leave after his freshman year.

"When I go to BYU, I'm going as a receiver," Ebert said, "but I would be willing to play any position the coaches want. The coaches said they might play me as a DB."

At Jordan, Ebert played receiver and safety. When asked to describe his strengths as football player Ebert said he is a downfield threat and has good agility and good hands. He said the one thing he wants to perfect before coming to BYU is his hands.

"Every receiver wants to have perfect hands," Ebert said.

Ebert has not officially visited BYU yet, but said he will make his recruiting trip in January with the rest of the recruits.
