As Scott said in his tweet, part of the reasoning for his change of decision — which took a ton of thought — was the position in which he plays. As a running back, we all know that the shelf life is shorter than any other position.

Over the course of his career as a Spartan, Scott took 586 carries for 2,771 yards and 25 TD.
