Linebacker will undoubtedly be one of the positions that the Clemson Tigers make a high priority in the 2005 class.

Vincent Scott, who was named the All-Area Defensive Player of the Year by The State, will certainly be one of the linebackers that should get a strong look. The rising senior had 139 tackles, 11 sacks, 12 hurries and 16 tackles for loss last season.

Scott does not plan to make an early decision during the recruiting process. "I will probably want to wait and see which school I have the best offer from before I decide. I will want to make sure about where I want to go."

The star linebacker grew up rooting for Florida State but he has been pulling for the Tigers in recent years. "I always liked Florida State for some reason. Since I was in middle school it's been Clemson. Especially since they whipped Carolina so bad. I am glad I am rooting for Clemson."

When asked what his strengths are, Scott responded, "Overall as a player I would say my technique. Even if you're not the strongest player technique will get you a long way. I learned a lot of technique my freshman year. I didn't think I would play much my sophomore year but I played a good bit. My speed has helped me a lot as well."

Scott currently runs a 4.5 forty.

Scott plans to work hard in the weight room to prepare for his senior campaign. "I am working out every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I would like to get up to 210 or 215 by next season. I want to be able to step on the field and have guys say is that the same person. I am also running track to improve my speed."
