Scott's latest offer comes from Georgia Tech. Coach Dave Walkosky extended the offer to Scott. "Coach Walkosky and their staff really like what they have seen of me on film. They feel I could lead the nation in rushing with my talent."

Tech is looking at Scott as an A Back in their spread option offense. "They run a lot of plays through the A-back position." Scott has the balance and speed that Tech is looking for at the A Back position.

The offer from Tech makes them a school that Scott will consider. "They run the ball a lot which is great in my eyes and they have a great academic reputation which is important to me." The fact that the Tech offense is hard to defend is appealing to Scott.

With the addition of the offer from Georgia Tech, Scott now has 11 offers. Derrell has an early top three. "South Carolina, Florida State, and Ohio State are my top three right now." Scott feels that the list could change depending on how his recruitment progresses.

Playing time will be an important factor for Scott as he takes a look at the schools that have offered him. "I want to get on the field as early as I can." Derrell will also be looking for coaches that will develop him and push him to get better. "Lastly but probably most important, I want a school with a good academic reputation that can provide me with a quality education."
