According to 247Sports, Scott is ranked as one of the top 50 running backs in the 2020 recruiting class. The 5-foot-8, 195-pound ball carrier runs a 4.54 40-yard dahs and is considered to be a “freakish” athlete because of his strength and speed combination.
He certainly brings some talent to the Huskers’ backfield.
Scott becomes the 10th player in the 2020 recruiting class to commit to Nebraska. Prior to his commitment, the Huskers ranked 11th in the B1G and 55th nationally in the recruiting rankings.
