The 6-foot-1, 345-pound prospect from Largo, Fla., is rated as the No. 60 defensive tackle nationally in the Class of 2017. He had reported offers from SEC counterparts Kentucky, Ole Miss and Tennessee, among several others.
Scott’s decision gives coach Jim McElwain six pledges for next year’s class.
