Syracuse commit Lindsey Scott has been the subject of much discussion since the new staff took over. Scott, a three-star quarterback who won Louisiana's Gatorade Player of the Year award, committed to the previous staff. There was no definitive answer as to whether the interest from both sides was there, though Scott has told CuseNation.com he is fully committed throughout the entire ordeal.
On Friday, Scott took that status to another level with a message directly to CuseNation.com.
"Offer from 'Cuse affirmed," he said.
Scott spoke co-offensive coordinator Sean Lewis Friday morning, and the message was clear. The new Syracuse staff wants Scott in the program and they have quickly started working on scheduling an official visit.
Scott added that it feels great to hear that from his future coaching staff and he never waivered in his commitment. The official visit date has not yet been set, but he had one scheduled with the previous staff for the weekend of January 22nd.
That weekend is already setting up to be a big one, with four-star running back Kentrail Moran, three-star defensive end Joshua Black and three-star running back Sam Brodner already set to be on campus. Having a committed player like Scott on campus would certainly aid their efforts.
