Skinny: One of the top players in Volusia County this year will be Seabreeze High School's Kenny Scott. The mail is coming in droves and the defensive back/running back/wide receiver already have several scholarship offers to report.
"The letters range from Florida, Stanford, Florida State, Nebraska, Ohio State, Michigan... Basically just about every school," Scott said. "I think over 53 Division I schools have sent me mail. I have scholarship offers from Purdue, Louisville, Stanford, Duke, Wake Forest, Central Florida, and there's a couple more but I can't remember them all."
Scott said the offers were both verbal and letter offers. What is he going to look for in choosing a school?
"I'd like to see if they can contend for a national title," Scott said. "I want the ability to come in and be an impact player early. I'd like a family atmosphere, somewhere where you're not just another person."
Scott played primarily offense last season at Seabreeze, but feels his future lies instead at defensive back, either corner or safety.
"A lot of people want me to play defensive back and at the next level I prefer defensive back," Scott said.
Scott expects to see more time on defense this season. As a freshman he played defensive back exclusively and had 6 interceptions that year.
"I feel I'm a hard hitter," Scott said. "I can cover good. I ran a 4.4 flat in the forty at the Nike combines so I can get to the ball quick. I just make plays when I get there."
Scott said he likes to compare himself to Mashall Faulk (RB) and Aeneas Williams (CB) from the St. Louis Rams. He has taken unofficial visits to Florida and Miami and tripped down to Coral Gables for the 'Canes' spring game earlier this month.
