4-star athlete holds Louisville offer

Scout.com four-star prospect Burton Scott has already collected ten scholarship offers and for good reason. InsideTheVille.com spoke with the Mobile, Alabama native and has the latest. Plenty of prospect video also included in this update.

Scout.com four-star wide receiver Burton Scott of Mobile, Ala., is quickly becoming one of the nation's hottest recruiting targets.

"I have ten now," Scott said of his current scholarship offers.

Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Kentucky, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisville, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss have all extended scholarship offers to the 5-foot-10, 190-pound athlete.

Scott played all over the field as a junior at Mobile-Vigor High School. He rushed for 1,070 yards with 11 touchdowns, 1,059 yards passing with eight touchdowns and 12 catches for 353 yards and one touchdown. He recorded two blocked field goal attempts returning one for a touchdown, while also totaling 219 yards in returns. Scott's finished the year with over 2,700 all-purpose yards and 21 touchdowns.

Burton Scott excelled at the U.S. Army All-American Junior Combine in January
"I can line up anywhere on the field," Scott told InsideTheVille.com. "I would like to have the opportunity to play quarterback, but I don't know what position I'll play at in college."

The reason for the uncertainty is that college coaches aren't quite sure where to best utilize his talents.

"Most schools are saying that I can play on both sides of the ball," Scott said. "Some are saying that they'll let me try quarterback, receiver, cornerback or safety."

With plenty of scholarship offers still to come his way, Scott isn't ready to make a short list of favorites.

"I've only visited Alabama and Auburn and that's because they are both close to me," Scott said. "I want to visit as many of the schools that offer me as I can, so I can see what is out there for me."

Scott currently has no visits scheduled, but hopes to do so following the completion of his spring practice.
