It's not hurting Stewart's stock. I think Scott would be pretty good in any offense, even a spread because of his speed. He can run inside the tackles as well as any back in the past few years, but he's also a homerun threat.

Texas seems to be back in the running for Scott. He was supposedly very interested in UT but we weren't showing him much interest in return. Looks like we recently offered and rumor was that he was taking a visit, not sure whether he actually made it out to Austin or not.

Last time we got a RB from California, it worked out pretty nice. :D

Colorado would be a really smart choice. He wouldn't have to worry about much competition, he'd have a great coach, and would have the thought of starting his own legacy.


He'll be extremely successful wherever he goes. I truely believe he's the best RB prospect since Adrian Peterson.

Go watch Peterson's highschool highlights and Scott's highschool highlights then compare.

IMO, Scott is shiftier, a bit faster, but not quite as powerful as Peterson. The thing I like about Scott is he has a lower center of gravity. Comparing anybody to Peterson is REALLY hard nowadays, but as far as highschool prospects, I really think they're both very much elite, with Chris Wells a miniscule notch below.

UT stopped recruiting Calhoun because he had major grade issues and with the recent off-field troubles we've been having, I don't think Mack wanted to take the chance.

But we wouldn't have offered Scott if we didn't want him. He just took an official visit 2 weeks ago and said he really enjoyed it.

oh okay i just wanted someone to clarify tha for me because Jermie is no slouch hes legit because I was wondering why Jeremy Hills over him? besides the fact that his brother was a top recruit and was a steady player woulda been a superstar at TE if not for injuries had to end up at OT

Calhoun was supposedly really high on UT so many fans were suprised/disappointed we weren't picking up THE stud back in Texas. But if there is one thing we can trust Mack Brown with...its recruiting.

Scott is going to Colorado
his uncle (Josh Smith) is the starting WR for Colorado

he'd be smart not to go to USC, or else he wont play till he junior year
if he goes to CU he'll be an immediate starter he'll have an average offensive line, and with Cody Hawkins, he could be pretty good


Scott is 100X the runningback Hugh Charles, and seeing the success Charles has had..... Scott could benefit

Mack Brown just offered Chris Whaley (RB 2009) which is very strange since we're still in the running for Scott and the fact that we NEVER offer juniors before junior days.

Not sure if this is any indication on our status w/ Scott, but losing to A&M and CU's comeback win over Nebraska didn't help our chances that's for sure.

My friend has a class with Josh Smith and when they were working on a project Darrel Scott called, and they talked for 30 min. Josh Smith and Darrel Scott talk every day. Anyways they asked Josh if Darrel was coming and he said with out a doubt. I'm not sure if it really went down like that, but I liked hearing that.

I was pretty surprised to hear that he named Colorado his top school even after we got killed by Mizzou. A game where I stood right behind him in the student section, and the only time it looked like he was having a good time was in the 1st quarter. He did however like my "Chase Daniel Eats Boogers" sign.

Here's what Darrell talked about in his chat on Rivals.com today:

-He says he liked his visit to Texas, and they are in his top 3.
-He says that Jamal Charles decision on going pro or not will affect his decision.
-He will announce on signing day.
-He says winning a NC is not important. He can go to a different school and make history himself.
-A good offensive line will influence his decision.
-He wants to play in an offense that can get him 20-25 carries a game.
-He says his fastest 40 ever was a 4.32 and he prefers to shake/stiff arm people.
-Depth chart is a factor.
-He'd rather win a NC than the Heisman.

Darrell Scott, widely considered the top-rated running back in the country, said Wednesday that Texas was one of four teams he’s considering.

What could be the deciding factor on whether the 6-foot-0, 204-pound athlete becomes a Longhorn?

“Really, it’s whether or not Jamaal Charles comes back,” Scott told the Austin American-Statesman prior to the news about Charles declaring for the NFL draft. “It will be big if he leaves. I don’t want to sit out my freshman year. I’m trying to hop in and make some chaos somewhere.”

The rumors are Scott has been Colorado lean, with Texas, Florida and LSU rounding out his four.

But Scott said the weather in Boulder, Colo., could be a factor.

“Man, it’s brutal up there,” he said. “They need to get some indoor facilities. I know it gets cold in Austin, but they just move indoors when that happens. I’m a warm-weather guy, and I really don’t like the cold.”

Scott, who is in San Antonio for the All-American game, said he plans on announcing his commitment on signing day (Feb. 6).

----------------

Sounds like a *****. CU has a 4* back coming in anyway so it's not like we are hurting there. If he wants to be a ***** and complain about the weather he can go to Texas...he would fit in perfectly.

I personally hope a talent like Scott does not go to Colorado. He will give Nebraska fits for years. :) But I too have never understood the thoughts HS athletes have about playing in cold weather. A talent like Scott will end up in the NFL, where the odds are you will be playing in a city with cold weather. Might as well get used to it while in college.

Mack and Major was set to visit Scott, not sure if they made it out there yet.

Don't think your 2nd comment is all that correct. Scott has always been interested in us and it's pretty much been CU or UT the whole time. Charles leaving should a HUGE deciding factor but we'll see. Rumor was that he was recruiting for CU during the Army game.

LonghornsLegend
01-20-2008, 06:29 PM
OK, Ill say he was slightly interested before Charles declared, but if Charles stayed we really didnt have a good chance to pick him up imho...Vondrell Mcgee is more then capable of being solid so I wasnt concerned too much...were not crazy deep at rb like we were a few years ago when we had a 4 back rotation, but now it will probably be wide open for Scott to start with Mcgee staying in the same role...

He canceled his interview he had with Florida right after he had his visit with Mack, which makes it only between colorado and its going to take something to sway him back in favor of them over UT...I keep hearing alot about him having a selfish attitude and being all about himself, thats the only thing im concerned about

"DENVER - FOX 31 Sports has learned through a reliable source close to the Colorado football program that it’s “unlikely” the Buffs will land prized recruit Darrell Scott.

Scott, who is widely considered the top high school running back in the country, is expected to choose Texas over Colorado.

This source told me tonight, “I won’t be shocked if he comes to Colorado, but I’m not expecting it. This source added, “If Scott doesn’t want to be a Buff, that’s fine with us. We’ll move on.”

The Buffs have tried to make a late push to get Scott, but it appears that Scott has made up his mind to join the Longhorns.

Scott’s assistant football coach, Roger Sonsini recently said that Texas is in the lead.

If Colorado doesn’t get Scott, many recruiting services still consider the Buffs to have a top-25 recruiting class led by locals Jon Major and Curtis Cunningham."

I went to most of the CU games this year but i don't really follow high school prospects, but if he is as talented as he is touted to be, then I am excited.

The Big XII and NCAA have received a grievance claim regarding Darrell Scott and are expected to report that enough information exists to warrant an investigation. For all the CU fans that want to believe this is just all a bunch of sour grapes, I'm sorry to report that there is a lot to this story. I can't go into detail, but there were improprieties at the hands of Alexis Scott. I won't make claims, b/c I don't know squat about Darrell Scott, but recordings were made of a key call between Bobby Kennedy & Alexis Scott, in which she pretty much asked him to beat the best offer they'd received from Colorado. ,I have not heard the call, but I have seen the initial transcripts. After Kennedy refused to do any illegal recruiting, she sent him a text message, "thanx for everything. MOM" Two days later Darrell committed to Colorado. It should be noted, he committed to Texas on 1/23 & again on 1/31. The Major Applewhite hire occurred a week before he 1st committed. This story is just getting started and will be national news soon, Where theres smoke theirs fire, The thing is a Coach at Darrells high school knows information that hes not suppose to say but has recently opened his mouth, Darrells mom quickly tried to have a meeting with him, She knows she might have ruined his career already, The offer was supposedly a bank job paying 6 figures in boulder

Kinda good to see Scott go to Colorado as a College FB fan...helps even out the distribution of power. The Buffs might actually balance out the Big 12 for a change now.

You would hope CU would be smart enough not to be involved in a recruiting scandal. Not with its past and what's going on with other schools recently. For CU's sake, I hope this is untrue.

BufFan, these rumors have been out there since Scott committed. I even heard these rumors the day before NSD by a few west coast people, so they are not something drummed up as sour grapes by just Horn fans.

It's easy to say these things happen everywhere, but Hawk may have picked the wrong time and place to let this one happen.

Its the NCAA they sit around and do nothing, What will most likely happen is they will figure out everything that happened after hes gone to the NFL, Just like Reggie Bush. If all this is true Colorado is in some deep trouble considering they are already on probation

There really are too many sour grapes. If a kid doesn't go to your school you have to ruin his school of choice?

i would assume if this were true that Colorado would get the death penalty for this violation... that would forgive the pun, kill that team, they'd never be the same.

Texas is upset because he had apparently privatly committed.....

But after Major Applewhite was hired as runningback's coach, he didnt like that move

yea i don't think Kevin Moyd or Demetrius Sumler can become the starting RB's i think Scott can only the starting job if he messes up or cuts class

Texas is upset? By Texas you mean who? Because this is coming from one guy, who writes for the newspaper, not Mack Brown or the schools AD...And if there was a job offer, that doesnt have anything to do with Texas on that part, if not he will go on and play as suspected.


Texas surely isnt as upset as you would like to think because its not like the past recruiting classes have been bare, we missed out on Peterson too but we just used a committee with Selvin Young, Ramonce Taylor, and Jamaal Charles...Losing a recruit is nothing new, Ryan Perrilloux was a hell of a lot more important then a rb, so this isnt anything new for Texas or any other school...He would of chose USC first anyway if they didnt have 6 rbs on the depth chart so it doesnt matter, its tough because I think he will be special, but its not like Texas is sour over him picking another school.
