A Daytona Beach Standout

[MEDIA:32874]<BR> Kenny Scott is quite an athlete from Daytona Beach Seabreeze High School. He plays running back and both safety positions but is being recruited as a cornerback.

A talented prospect from the state of Florida is Kenny Scott from Daytona Beach (Fla.) Seabreeze High School. Scott, 6-1 and 181 pounds, plays running back and both safety position but he will likely line up at cornerback at the next level.

"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. The main thing out there is that I try and be physical. I could play running back in college but I rather hit than be hit."

Apparently the colleges agree. According to Scott, he has scholarship offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, NC State, Michigan State, South Florida, Central Florida, Clemson, Alabama, Wake Forest, Duke, West Virginia, Boston College and Purdue. Florida, FSU, Miami and Nebraska are four schools showing a lot of interest but have not offered him yet. He hopes to have a big senior season to impress all.

"Right now, I like the big three in Florida (Florida, FSU and Miami), Georgia Tech, Georgia, Clemson, Tennessee, Stanford, North Carolina and NC State. I am looking at school tradition, facilities and the coaching staff. I would like the opportunity to play early too."

Last season as a junior, Scott rushed for over 800 yards and 12 scores. He also caught 27 passes for over 700 yards. As a sophomore, he rushed for over 1,500 yards. Scott started as a freshman in the secondary. This past track season, Scott ran 10.67 100 meters and 22.2 200 meters. He is considering Clemson, Florida, FSU and Georgia for camps this summer. Scott carries a 2.7 GPA and has already scored a 960 SAT.
