Most recruiting gurus are touting Jacksonville (Fla.) Ed White’s Dee Webb as the top cover corner in the state. Before it’s all said and done, Daytona Beach (Fla.) Seabreeze’s Kenny Scott will have something to say about that. The 6-foot-1 and 170 pound athlete, who has been timed in the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds, has been on a tear this spring by totally dominating the competion and racking up gobs of scholarship offers.
“I had a pretty good jamboree,” Scott said. “On offense I had seven carries for 107 yards and had two touchdowns. The touchdown runs were 58 and 15 yards. On defense I made 11 solo tackles, forced a fumble, and made several key plays in a 35-14 win.”
With his strong showing this spring, it’s not hard to figure out way schools from across the country are jumping at the chance to offer this special talent.
“Tennessee, Clemson, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Michigan, Louisiana State, Georgia, Boston College, Maryland, Wake Forrest, Louisville, Duke Stanford, Connecticut, and Indiana have all offered,” Scott said. I like the big-three Florida schools, Georgia and Georgia Tech.”
Will Florida, Florida State or Miami be the next schools to pony up an offer and officially join the sweepstakes for this speedy-corner?
“I talked with Coach Odom of Florida, and he told me that they were on the verge of offering me,” Scott said. “Miami told me that they signed a lot defensive backs last year, and they are limited on who they take. The coach does like me and he needs to watch more film before Miami offers. Florida State told me that they are still evaluating a lot of prospects, and that they are still watching a lot film like Miami.”
Scott, who is on track to qualify, told FlaRecruiting.com that he’s looking for school were he’ll feel comfortable in their defensive scheme.
