Four-star RB Scott picks Tennessee over South Carolina


It’s too bad for Tennessee it doesn’t have 180 minutes in game instead of 60 … that way it could take advantage of all the running back talent it has coming in this year.

Jalen Hurd and Treyvon Paulk were already an outstanding RB duo, and now Derrell Scott–truly one of South Carolina’s biggest targets for months–has committed to the Vols over the Gamecocks. Hurd and Payne have had injury issues in the past year, so Scott’s commitment on Monday is even more great news for the Vols. One could argue that the Hurd-Scott duo is nearly as good as Georgia’s Nick Chubb-Sony Michel duo also coming in time for 2014.

“Coaches like my quickness, my speed, my change of direction ability, my explosiveness and my versatility,” Scott told Saturday Down South in a recent interview. “They say all those things when they say what they like about me. I just love the competition level and the location of the conference (SEC).”

Tennessee’s class is now 34 strong and the Vols might be wrapped up with the group now, though one never knows with Butch Jones. This is largest class among BCS conference schools. The Vols class is rated No. 6 in the country.
