Mike's Take: New WR commit

The Hurricanes landed a commitment from one of the top wide receiver prospects in south Florida on Monday. Read on to see what it means for the Canes.

Rodney Scott announced his commitment to Miami on Monday.

What to Like: At 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, Scott has ideal height for a junior wide receiver prospect. He has good leaping ability and does a nice job of attacking the football at its highest point. He wins most jump balls because of it. From an athletic standpoint, while not elite, he's very good. He looks to be a 4.5-type runner who shows flashes of being able to run away from people in the open field. He's a productive player from a local program, and his best days seem to be ahead of him.

What may concern you: For someone with his size/athleticism combination, he hasn't put up great production numbers yet. That's not saying that he doesn't produce but you'd like to see him take over more games and really change games with more plays. He is still raw in a lot of ways and still needs to become a more refined route-runner before he'll be able to make a difference at the college game.

Bottom Line: Scott is a very talented 2017 wide receiver prospect who has around a dozen scholarship offers. Florida, West Virginia, and Louisville are some of his other offers. He's one of the area's top prospects in the 2017 class at the wide receiver position. He becomes Miami's second wide receiver commitment in the '17 class, joining Columbus High's Christopher Henderson.
