LJ Scott channeling his inner Lamar Jackson here. That fingertip catch tho. pic.twitter.com/TM9mkSKcM0— Ty Wurth (@WurthDraft) November 19, 2016
L.J. Scott is having one heck of a game.
Michigan State may be trailing Ohio State 17-10 early in the fourth quarter, but it isn’t because of their all-purpose running back. Scott can not only run it effectively, but he can catch it as well.
Watch this fingertip catch by Scott and then he goes on to hurdle a Buckeye defensive back for a first down. To this point, the sophomore has 104 yards rushing to go along with his 76 receiving yards and a touchdown catch.
He drew some lofty Spartan-esque comparisons on social media:
Very Le'Veon Bell like play by LJ Scott.

Love it when LJ Scott channels his inner Le'veon Bell. He is having his best game ever in a spartan uniform
