Scott Aims to Impress

Multi-purpose athlete Justin Scott could play a number of positions at the next level including wide receiver, running back and cornerback. At 6-0 and 205-pounds with 4.4 speed he is one of the fastest players in the state of Georgia for the class of 2011. From Camilla (GA) Mitchell County, he holds nine offers at this time.

Georgia, Georgia Tech, East Carolina, South Carolina, Vanderbilt, Louisville, Wake Forest, Stanford, and Maryland have all extended offers.

"So far I have only taken two visits, University of Georgia twice and Georgia Tech. I attended the Georgia vs. South Carolina game this past season. I really enjoyed the atmosphere up in Athens on game day. There were more people in the stadium then there are in my hometown. I attend a junior day at Georgia Tech back in January. It went well. I really learned a lot about the lifestyle for the players and their daily routine. I plan on visiting many schools this summer. I plan on sweeping the whole Southeastern region. I would like to see Georgia again. Some schools I am going to visit include, Wake Forest, South Carolina, Louisville, and Stanford. Georgia has shown me the most attention throughout my the recruiting process. They were first to offer me and I really have a good connection with the entire coaching staff."

Justin Scott talked about his upcoming senior season and his strengths.

"This upcoming football should be one to remember. My high school team is moving down to Single A, the smallest classification in Georgia. We are returning all of our starters and our quarterback is progressing and becoming more confident with the offense. Our offensive line will be the focal point this spring and summer. I think my speed, work ethic, versatility, and passion for the game separates me from any player in the country. I always go out and try to out work the man across from me. I am a student of the game as well as a player. I will do my best to prepare for each game and understand the opposing team strengths and weaknesses. My size and strength also give me an advantage over the defense. I can play both inside and outside wide receiver but my coaches prefer me to play the slot so I can show my versatility. We run the spread offense so I am involved in the run game as well as the passing game. I think I will need to improve on my route-running and catching the ball with consistency if I want to make an immediate impact in college. I am working hard to become a true wide receiver."

He is the reigning Georgia class AA 200m(21.66) Champion and 100m runner up(10.64). This track season he currently holds the fastest 100m time in GA 10.53 and the 6th fastest in the 200m (21.57).
