With a 6-4, 315-pound frame and impressive 5.0 speed, Scott has all the physical tools to be a dominating defensive tackle. The in-state battle will be fierce for this prize recruit, but Clemson and South Carolina will also have to fight off some of the top programs from around the country.

The scholarship list continues to grow as Scott now has offers from Clemson, South Carolina, Alabama, North Carolina and Iowa. Scott currently lists Clemson, South Carolina and Alabama as his top 3.

Scott is being recruited by Brad Scott for Clemson, and Skip Holtz for South Carolina. Dorrel also gets to see former Tiger Jeff Scott quite frequently as he is one of the coaches at Ridge View High School.

Brad Scott appears to me making an impression on Dorrel. "Clemson has shown a lot of interest. I went up there for junior prospect day. The coaches are real nice, cool, and down to earth. I got to meet coach Smith, coach Lovett and coach Blackwell."

Scott is ready to live on campus and enjoy his college experience. "I like the fact that Clemson is far away from home. I am ready for some freedom."

Instead of attending summer camps, Scott is spending time in summer school to improve his GPA. Scott recently took the SAT for the first time and is awaiting his test score.

Don't expect a commitment from the powerful defensive tackle any time soon. "I plan to wait it out," said Scott.

What factors will Scott consider when selecting a college? "Academic standards and living on campus," stated Scott.

Scott's favorite Tiger of all time is former defensive line star Trevor Pryce. We will keep you updated on this outstanding defensive lineman, right up through signing day 2004.
