Junior RB Derrell Scott (5-11 180) of Havelock, NC has offers from USC, Tennessee, Florida State, North Carolina, NC State, Duke, Ohio State, East Carolina and Louisiana-Lafayette with interest from Alabama, Auburn, Oregon, Texas A&M and Texas.
Scott was at the USC-Florida game last year and plans to return this Saturday. "I really enjoyed it down there," said Scott. "It was a great experience. Their games are a lot of fun."
He plans to take in the Gamecocks home-opener against ECU Saturday and plans to return in October when Georgia comes to town. "Those are the only games I've scheduled so far but I'll probably go to some other schools," he said. "ECU is just down the road from where I live, so I'm sure I'll go there."
As a sophomore, Scott rushed for over 1800 yards and 25 touchdowns. Through three games this season he has over 300 yards and four scores. "I really have six but two were called back," he added.
Never miss a local story.
