Checkout Sir William Scott’s Highlights (No. 35 playing safety on defense above)
Analysis: Michigan 2016 CC commit Sir Patrick Scott
Upper Marlboro (Md.) Riverdale Baptist senior cornerback Sir Patrick Scott was in action last Friday. While his team didn’t come out on top, Scott provided the punch defensively, as Georgetown (Md.) Prep defeated Riverdale, 21-7.
Scott, who was close to double digits in tackles, moved to safety the previous week at his coaches suggestion. The move, worked out great, with him being in the middle of the action all day. He showed a good nose for the football, and wasn’t afraid to mix it up in a scrum. He showed good awareness on the field, and while he didn’t get tested through the air, he is a legit 6-foot-, 190-pounds.
Currently, Scott is rated the No. 58th rated CB in the country, and it easily could be higher. He just doesn’t get the attention living in the east coast that other top players do. Simply put: Scott could be the sleeper of this draft class. He does so many good things on the football field, and his versatility of playing corner or safety should help him see the field early at Michigan.
Scott on playing safety:
“Safety was always my first position,” Scott said. “Coming into high school I wanted to play safety. But my coaches saw some success for me at cornerback. Safety has always been in my blood, it’s what I like do -- I like to hit.”
But would he be willing to play safety at Michigan?“I have fell in love with corner,” Scott admits. “I am looking forward to coming in and playing corner as well. If they want me to play safety, I will just do it. I just want to do what’s best for the team.”
