One player that's been on the Bulls radar for some time is Rashawn Scott, the All-state receiver/athlete from Melbourne Central Catholic. Scott is a 6-foot-2, 198 pound senior that excelled on both sides of the ball while helping lead MCC to a perfect 10-0 regular season record.
In the regular-season finale Scott scored 4 touchdowns, in a variety of ways. He caught two TDs, on an 80-yard pass and a 30-yard pass. He recovered a teammates fumble and ran it in for a 10-yard score, and on defense stripped the ball from a receiver and took it 75 yards down for a TD, all in the first half n route to a 42-21 win and a second consecutive unbeaten regular season.
In the Class 1A regional semifinals, MCC lost to Providence 44-27, and in his last prep game Scott had 13 catches for 227 yards and a score to put a nice finish on a solid prep campaign. As a junior Scott did it on both sides of the ball, on defense he recorded 62 tackles, 5 forced fumbles, 1 interception and a defensive score, and on offense he hauled in 39 catches for 901 yards and 12 touchdowns, earning First team All-State receiver for Class 1A, and named All-Treasure Coast.
"It's all good," said Scott. "I had a pretty good game that last one."
The 3-star receiver was supposed to take an official visit to West Virginia this weekend, but that is no longer the case.
"I was going to go, but I changed my mind and I have to set up another one," said Scott. "I really don't know right now."
Rashawn has said that previously that USF and West Virginia are the front runners, with Michigan State just behind, but a new school has entered the picture.
"To let you know I'm talking to Georgia now too," said Scott. "They haven't offered, but I think they will."
"Right now it's WVU, Georgia, USF, Michigan State, etc," said Scott. "I like those four the same, and all the others under."
The talented receiver got to watch the Bulls overtime victory over Miami, and liked what he saw.
"It was a very good game," said Scott. "I thought it was a pretty good win for USF."
How does a win like that affect how Rashawn feels about USF?
"Nothing has changed about how I feel about them," said Scott. "They are still on my top."
Scott visit schedule is now up in the air, but an official to USF is definitely in the works.
"Yeah I'm planning on taking an official to USF," said Scott. "I'll probably set my visit for sometime in January. I'm also working on the others."
Scott says he'll probably make his decision in January or it could come down to Signing Day.
The MCC stand-out was recently named to the All-District 11 Team, a list of 26 players compiled by area coaches. Players like Chevelle Buie and Stephen Hughes are also on the list.
