Scott Creating a Buzz

Dezmond Scott of North Mesquite appears to be on the verge of his first scholarship offer after turning in dazzing performances on the camp circuit this summer. With 4.6 speed coming off the edge, Scott gives offensive tackles fits.

Dezmond Scott of North Mesquite appears to be on the verge of his first scholarship offer after turning in dazzing performances on the camp circuit this summer.

Scott, a 6-foot-1, 210-pounder with 4.6 speed, lines up at defensive end for the Stallions, but his future in college likely lies at the linebacker position.

"I had around 55 tackles last year and I led the team with eight sacks," Scott said. "We started off the year good, but then it was disappointing down the stretch. This spring, we've been more focused and determined."

The Stallions won the first two games of the season last season (vs. Rowlett and North Garland), but only managed one win the rest of the way. Scott is determined to help his squad achieve more success this fall and he's been diligently working at summer camps - in order to improve his skills.

"The SMU camp was great," he said. "There was a great turnout there and the coaches are cool. It was a good camp. I went to the TCU camp last Friday. There were a lot of players there. It was hard to get much one-on-one attention because there were so many players.

"The UTEP camp was my favorite thus far. It was organized and I liked the way that the coaches were teaching us. I also went to Houston's camp and while there wasn't a great turnout, we got some good individual attention from their coaches."

Which schools are showing Scott the most interest?

"SMU and UTEP are recruiting me the hardest," he said. "After my performance at the SMU camp, their linebackers coach told me that they wanted my film - and I'm pretty sure that he got that from my head coach.

"UTEP's coaches told me that I wasn't on their radar before their camp, but I am now. They said that they're going to come to a couple of my games early in the season to scout me and see if they're going to offer."
