Mickey Plyler on Scott: "If it were not for Watson, Scott would be the headliner of the class. This is a terrific receiver with a lot of the physical skills to compete as a true freshman. Like the other four early enrollees, Scott will get a lot of attention in the spring. I am not sure he has the top end speed or the size of Sammy Watkins but there is a lot of Watkins skill set in Scott. He is outstanding in the open field and is probably the best of the options at receiver in terms of big play capability."
Reminds Plyler of: Antwan Wyatt

One of the top WR's in Florida for the 2014 class. Scott looked really quick and elusive while at the 2013 Dabo Swinney football camp.
