Scott is 5'11, weighs 180 pounds, and is considered one of the top 100 prospects in the class of 2014 by both Rivals and 247Sports. The latter considers him the No. 86 overall player in the class and the 12th-best player at his position. Scout ranks him as the No. 15 wide receiver in the class.

Bud Elliott, National Recruiting Analyst: Scott is one of the premier playmakers in the class of 2014. The first thing that jumps off the tape when watching Scott is his quickness. Sure, Scott has blazing speed, but it is the quickness with which he climbs to his top gear that is so impressive. Not only does Scott use his quickness with the ball in hands, with which he is really electric, but also to get open. Scott is deadly on stop-and-go routes. There really aren't any defenders in high school who can handle him on underneath routes in man coverage. Scott is so quick that East Lake High School even lines him up as a defensive end in pass rushing situations, and asks him to speed around the offensive tackle. Scott does not have the best moves, but he knows it and elects to use his speed and quickness to gain yards.

Scott is good at going up to get the football, and for his solid build is plenty strong, but he's not going to be the target of too many jump balls at the college level. He has very good body control and strong hands.

While Scott needs to polish his route running a bit, he should develop into a multi-year starter at a major program, and could be a starting punt returner the moment he steps on campus.
