Arguably the top player in Central New York High School football is CBA's Stevie Scott. Scott is a dynamic running back at the high school level and is terrorizing opposing defenses this season. A legitimate division one prospect, Scott is on the Syracuse radar.
Scott visited Syracuse last weekend to watch them face South Florida. The 6-foot-2 athlete said the trip went well, and he has "70% interest" in the Orange as a result.
"I met with most of the coaches and other players," Scott said. "I went on the field and watched pre-game."
The CBA standout said he spoke with the Syracuse coaches about his junior season was going. They discussed staying in touch and keeping them updated on how he develops.
Scott was focusing on the systems and the schemes during the game, trying to see how he fits into both. The reason? Syracuse is recruiting him as an athlete who could play running back, linebacker or both.
"Offense wise, I think the program is a good place for me," he said. "The running backs get the ball the right amount of times. Take aways is just the secondary on defense needs help. But I like the program."
Scott believes Syracuse is headed in the right direction under Dino Babers, and that by the time he would arrive, things would be much better.
The game vs USF may not be the last one Scott attends this season. He says he is hopeful he will return to the Carrier Dome, but it depends on his schedule.
