2003 Profile: CB Kenny Scott

One of the top cornerbacks in the southeast is receiving interest from every major college football program you can think of...and his name is Kenny Scott. Scott is another fine athlete from the Sunshine State that could be looking seriously at the Tigers.

Kenny Scott (6'1, 180, 4.4) has all the athleticism you'd like to see in a top notch cornerback prospect, but he's been much more than that so far in his high school career.

He's an extremely talented football player, with the ability to play in the secondary, at wide receiver, and also at running back. Kenny rushed for 1,480 yards as a sophomore and 800 more yards last season. He also registered more than 700 yards receiving as a junior.

"Everyone is recruiting me as a cornerback," said Scott. "I have size and speed. I am a physical player that likes to jam the receiver at the line of scrimmage. I have quick hips and break on the ball well. I could play running back in college but I rather hit than be hit."

Scott also placed fifth in a national AAU track meet during the summer with a time of 10.7 in the 100-meter dash- so you know he can flat out fly. He also has great size to go along with his speed for potential D-I cornerback.

Some college recruiters who came to spring drills told Seabreeze coach Marc Beach that they wanted Scott as a safety because he was known to drop the football on occasion, but his coach now insists otherwise.

"His hands have gotten a lot better, and that could help him play tailback," said Beach. "I think he can be (a running back) in college. Next year, his hands will only be better. He's going to be able to go just about wherever he wants."

"Right now, I like Florida, FSU, Miami, Georgia Tech, Georgia, Clemson, Tennessee, Stanford, North Carolina and N.C. State. I am looking at school tradition, facilities and the coaching staff. I would like the opportunity to play early too," Scott said in an interview with Jamie Newberg.

Scott has already been to Miami and Florida on unofficial visits this year. It is unclear as to if or when he'll be coming to Clemson, but the Tigers have already moved in with an official offer.

Kenny projects as a full qualifier with 2.67 GPA and a 960 on his SATs.

Some of Scott's accolades:
  • Class 3A All-State 3rd team WR following junior season
  • All-State team as a sophomore
  • All-Area as a freshman, sophomore and junior
  • All-Conference as a sophomore and junior
  • Central Florida Athlete of the Week (2 times)
