While the Syracuse coaching staff looked on last week watching Scott showcase his skills, many other coaching staffs came away impressed too.
The staffs of St. John's and Richmond also watched Scott, who also performed on a high level at the Kingwood Classic in Houston, Texas, according to several reports. Scott is a lefty with a feathery shooting touch, and it was on display at Kingwood last weekend with the Metro Hawks (formerly Riverside Church).
Scott has a fairly quick release and decent size to get it off. Scott is also a strong passer who doesn't make many mistakes on the floor. He doesn't have great lateral quickness, or eye-catching athleticism, but he boasts a reliable stroke and a decent frame along with some savvy.
Scott has offers already from Hofstra, St. Francis (NY), and Quinnipiac. But if Scott blows up this summer, this might even tempt programs like Syracuse to offer early in the recruiting process. Niko will travel with the Metro Hawks this spring and summer. Last summer he traveled with Doc Nicelli's Madison Student-Athletes. Scott carries an 89 GPA in the classroom.
