RECRUITING UPDATE/STATUS: Machado played very well for the New York Elite in the Spring League at IS8. Scott's backcourt play was a big reason why Eric Jaklitsch and Chris Phillips' AAU program advanced to the semifinals at IS8.
Machado showed the ability to score from the shooting guard slot and when called upon, displayed the ability to run the show. As he become more confident directing the offense, Scott is likely to cut down on turnovers.
Machado is awaiting a test result, according to sources. If he does well on the test, Scott told us he's excited about a chance to play at Iona College.
STRENGTHS: Machado has been impressive when given the responsibility to run the floor show for the teams he competes with as demonstrated by his success over the past year.
Scott also has the ability to score with his dribble on drives to the basket or shaking his defender along the perimeter.
AREA TO IMPROVE: Consistency in his perimeter game
