Tennessee will likely have stiff competition in this recruitment from Ohio State. Scott attends Springfield High School in Springfield, Ohio. Scott is listed at 6-foot, 170 pounds.
However, he would be a major addition for the Vols if they’re able to land him. Scott is currently ranked as the No. 71 overall player and the No. 9 cornerback in the country, per 247Sports Composite rankings. He’s also the No. 2 player from the state of Ohio.
Tennessee is off to a strong start in the 2024 cycle. The Vols have 8 commitments so far in this cycle and have the nation’s No. 7-ranked class so far, per 247Sports Composite rankings.
