Scott Opening Eyes

The 5-11, 175-pound Eric Scott from Washington (GA) Wilkes is opening eyes across the Southeast. A running back with 4.5-speed, Scott has put up some impressive numbers over the last several seasons.

Eric Scott ended his ninth grade season with just less than 1,200 yards and followed that up with another 1,242 rushing yards during his 10th grade season. This season it has been more of the same. So far this season Scott has 793 yards rushing with six touchdowns.

"My strength is my vision, explosiveness and versatility and I want to improve on my strength and speed."

The five he is most interested in is still the same with Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Clemson and Georgia Tech with LSU showing him the most interest.

My Take:
Scott is a great looking player that shows great toughness and does not shy away from contact. He shows great instincts with the ball in his hands and reads blocks well. He has yet to set up visits so it will be interesting to see when/if he takes a trip to Gainesville. He glowed about the Gators early last month but if Georgia circles him then I don't believe he will leave the state and even if he gets away from the Bulldogs the way the Yellow Jackets run the ball will make them a force moving forward.
