Tigers lead the Vols for Scott

A prospect Tiger fans have not heard a whole lot of in the recruiting circles is Greenville (Miss.) linebacker DeMarcus Scott (6-1, 240, 4.6).<br><br> He is one of the hardest hitting middle linebackers in the South and that is a big reason Nick Saban extended a scholarship offer to him.

Scott has three official visits set up with Marshall (1/14), LSU (1/17) and Tennessee (1/24) in the coming weeks and then he expects to announce his intentions. So, does he have a leader at this point?

"LSU leads Tennessee," Scott said. "I've been watching LSU since I was young. Their defensive scheme is like a basic NFL scheme so you don't have learn too much when you move on."

What about the Volunteers?

"Tennessee is alright but they change so much on defense," Scott told Tiger Rag. "It depends on who they are playing but they change up a lot of sets on defense. While, LSU will stick with their normal set and then bring everything out of it."

Since the Tigers have been Scott's childhood favorite, he often wonders what it would be like to run out of the tunnel on a Saturday night in Tiger Stadium.

"It's loud in there," said Scott. "I heard what coach (Bear) Bryant said about it feeling like you are stuck inside a drum. I just watch on TV and imagine how it would be to actually play there."

It looks like the ball is on his side of the court.

Sonny's View: Scott is fully qualified to play as a freshman and many think he will be a Tiger. He logged 105 tackles during his senior season and he has good instincts in the middle.
