Why be excited: He served as a versatile weapon in an East Lake (Fla.) offense that scored 603 points his senior season. His field-vision and shiftiness makes him a threat in the return game as well, going the distance for four touchdowns last season.
You may not know: After racking up over 2,000 receiving yards in his sophomore and junior years, the Eagles used him heavily as a running back his final campaign, rushing for 729 yards and 13 scores.
How he fits into the depth chart: There may no more competitive a position this fall than receiver with four signees and two open starting spots. Scott is one of three early enrollee receivers that has a jump-start on his early-playing-time chance. Scott would seem to fit '5-man' role in the slot or to the field in Sammy Watkins' former role.
