One of the fastest rising prospects in the state this season was Irmo RB Dawan Scott. The talented Irmo back racked up over 2,000 yards rushing this season despite missing 3 regular season games with an ankle injury. The 6'1 175 pound gamebreaker was named to his year's North-South All Star game and he recently decided that he'd give his verbal to a school after hearing from a number of schools in the past few months.
"I gave my verbal to Miami (Ohio) last Friday. I will take my official there in January. They are supposed to go to my house on Thursday to meet my parents and then head down here to see me practice."
What sold Scott on the MAC program?
"They run the ball a lot! They have a great coaching staff too. Last year I believe they won like 1 or 2 games max and then Coach Haywood came in and turned it around. They won the MAC conference this year. It was only a year ago when they were struggling so that tells you that they have a great coaching staff."
"Plus I also like that their offense is kind of like Irmo's so I'll fit in great with them. They are also a great academic school as well. Plus they play big schools like Boise State, Ohio State, Missouri, Cincinnati and so on."
Another thing I really like about them is that they are a young team so basically everybody is returning except the running back so everything is perfect. They have a great line already and have guys that can replace them as well so yeah I'm really excited about the future of the program and being a big part of it."
Being in Myrtle Beach for practice prior to this weekend's game most folks think of the sunny skies and warm temperatures. Scott shared his thoughts about practices so far on the coast in just one word.
