Recruit Talk: Derrell Scott

Man I hope we we can snag this kid away from the south. He has all the physical skills but what impresses me is that he knows when to just turn on the jets and go, and when to make somebody miss. He just has a great feel of running lanes.
Anybody know what type of competition he plays though? Didn't appear to be the best on film.
Do you like him more than Lattimore and Hurd? I like him better than Haden, but if we only take 2 RB's, I'll be happy with those two.
Lattimore is a WR or CB.
Good question. I think Lattimore is a WR all the way, with the ability to take some carries. Hurd is insistent on playing RB and I am fine with recruiting him there, as he is a big time talent. Frankly, I like Scott a bit more than Haden but by no means would I be upset with a Haden pickup. If such a scenario would arise, I could see us possibly taking all 4 and figuring out which 2 go to WR later.
I like Scott, but give me Hurd & Autry at RB.
If Autry follows his brother to Tech, I'd take Scott and wouldn't blink.
Agreed! I'd take all 4 if possible, and Lattimore would be used primarily as WR/Harvin/Brown position. Hurd could be used similarly, an athlete who we just get the ball in his hands. And Haden and Scott would be our RBs who I'm sure Urban could also split out into the slot and use in space, kind of how Brandon James and Chris Rainey were used and how I'm sure he'd like Jordan Hall to be used.
^ Both good points. Lots of similar players with lots of skill and speed to burn to fit into WR/RB for '14. I really like Scott but I don't see much drop off in talent in any of Scott, Autry, Lattimore, Haden, and Hurd. Might be a moot point anyways, Scott seems to be leaning heavily towards South Carolina.
Scout$--Top N.C. RB likes Vols
Derrell has South Carolina as his leader but says Florida State, Ohio State, Virginia Tech, Alabama, LSU and Tennessee are close behind.
South Carolina is leader with Florida and tOSU close behind.
Have you ever seen this young man play?
Just happened to see this highlight vid of Mr. Scott. Kid is such a special RB, and his jukes and cuts are just insane. He can make moves in tight spaces, and before you know it he's gone!
11 warriors mentioned him being recruited as hard as Hurd and of similar importance:
I would like to agree with the writer, and hope we'd go after getting 3 commits from the guys listed and use 2 as athletes/RB/WR types. At this point I'd like nick chubb as the true RB and Hurd and Scott as the athletes. With Haden and autry being right behind those 3, imo.
And in that same vein, I'd like to add another name, Lattimore!
Separate names with a comma.
