As the time went on during his trip, it didn’t take long for the northeast defender to realize Ann Arbor is where he wanted to be and ultimately committed to Michigan.
“Michigan has great history and Coach (Jim) Harbaugh,” Scott told The Michigan Insider. “He is a proven winning coach and when the opportunity came I had to take it. Not too many people can say they had a chance to play for him.
“The BBQ was really cool. The food was great and I got to meet some of the other commits and a few of the players on the team. I also met with the coaches too. Everything was great.”
With offers from Wisconsin, Michigan State, California, Boston College amongst many others, the 6-1, 175-pound cornerback had plenty of options to choose from. However, knowing Jim Harbaugh’s pedigree that he brings to Michigan and his track record of sending players to the NFL, Scott felt this chance to play under him would be too good to pass up.
“It’s a opportunity of a lifetime,” said Scott. “Getting to play for a coach who is a proven winner is awesome.”
The Wolverines now have 22 commits in their 2016 class and five in the backend of their defense. Scott is also the second Maryland commitment joining Baltimore (Md.) Gilman offensive tackle Devery Hamilton.
