2015 Intro: Carolina High RB Tracy Scott

2015 Carolina High RB Tracy Scott is a sleeper who is flying under the radar right now. He's performed well at various D1 camps and combines but the 6'0 194 pound prospect is still looking for offer number one. We sat down with Scott to talk about his junior season, recruitment, and outlook for his senior season in this FREE premium update on SCPrepNation.com!

Tracy Scott Profile

Checking in at 6'0 194 pounds you see the frame that college coaches like and there's no reason Scott probably couldn't add another 10-15 pounds of good muscle in college either. For now he's using that physique and strength to his advantage. Last season he ran for 900 yards and 9 touchdowns for the Trojans and he's looking to improve upon that come next season.

So far Scott has heard from quite a few regional schools and he's been active on the camp and combine circuit this off season.

"I'm hearing from Western Carolina, Coastal Carolina, Appalachian State, North Greenville, Louisville, Georgia Southern, and The Citadel."

"I've camped at Louisville, Clemson, Western Carolina, Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, and South Carolina."

Out of all the schools he's heard from so far he says that Coastal Carolina, Western Carolina, and North Greenville are recruiting him the hardest right now.

We asked the 2015 prospect which camps he felt he performed best at and what those coaches said to him about his performances.

"I did the best at Clemson, Louisville, Western Carolina, and at Coastal Carolina. They all told me that I stood out and that they really like me. The coach at Coastal Carolina said he felt like I was the best running back at their camp."

Scott says he hasn't landed his first scholarship offer yet but he's hoping a couple of schools might be some of the first to change that.

"I think maybe North Greenville, Coastal Carolina, and Western Carolina could be close to offering me."

So what will that moment be like when he does receive his first scholarship offer?

"It's going to feel really good because it'll show me that hard work does pay off and that dreams do come true!"

Having piled up some solid stats last season the 2015 Carolina Trojan prospect talked with us about what his goals are for next season. He also talked about what his strengths are right now and what aspects of his game he's working hardest to improve upon heading towards that first game of his senior season.

"I want to rush for 2,000 yards and no fewer than 12 touchdowns next season."

"I'd say my size and speed are some of my biggest strengths. I'm also able to read a defense pretty well and find my big runs so my vision is pretty good too."

"I'd like to improve my flexibility in my hips to get better for next year."

One game in particular stands out to Scott as the best of his junior season and it was a monumental one for his squad.

"I would have to say the Pendleton game. I had about 200 yards that game and 3 touchdowns. It was memorable because me and my team shocked everybody! Carolina hadn't beaten Pendleton in about 10 years."

Scott also shared with us what factors he'll look at closely when choosing a potential college destination to continue his education and football career.

"I'm going to look at how many running backs they have, the type of offense they run, and education is the biggest thing for me because the NFL isn't a guarantee. Location honestly doesn't really matter to me either."

He also told us what player he really likes to emulate when he's on the field as well.

"I would say Adrian Peterson because we both run really hard and he's kind of a taller back like me and that's just who I strive to be like."

Scott knows just how important a strong start to his senior season will be for his recruitment because many of the coaches showing interest will be watching. Should he come out and put up some big numbers early on expect those offers to start trickling in for him.

Currently Scott reports a 2.8 GPA and a 980 SAT score but he says he will take it again and will continue to work hard to better his GPA and scores during his senior season.
