He stands at 6′ 5″ and weighs 165 pounds, he is a definite standout in the Class of 2024, where he is currently a Sophomore at Lexington South Carolina High School. He is ranked number 11 nationally by ESPN.
His NBA Draft Projection is a First Round in the 2024 or 2025 draft.
Here are some strengths and expectations from him:
Scott has an offensive game that is very fluid and you can not tell if he is sprinting or jogging since he is just a player that is so smooth on his feet. He has a 6-foot-7″ or 6-foot-8″ wingspan, which will make him a solid defender in college basketball. Scott said, “I am a very energized player. I like to make game-winning plays. I like to get loose balls, rebounds, and I like to space the floor out and run the floor. I like getting my teammates involved, but I can score when I need to.”
His stats in high school last year as a Freshman were 16.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4 assists, and two steals per game. In South Carolina, UNC basketball has signed six from that state which are Larry Davis, Jalek Felton, Raymond Felton, Brice Johnson, Seventh Woods, and Shammond Williams. No one has averaged 16 points a game, started varsity in 8th grade, and been selected to the South Carolina 5-A All-State Team.
247 Sports National Recruiting Analyst, Travis Branham said, “Scott has quickly made a name for himself among the top of the 2024 class and could prove the reputation true, as he continues to mature and develop in the coming years. When I saw him play, it was his passing that stood out to me the most. Scott has excellent vision and basketball IQ. and played under control and while he got his, he also got his teammates involved.”
Scott’s expectations in the Class of 2024 are he will be a highly soughed recruit in the class. He needs to get more consistent on the defensive end of the court and to stay in the flow of the game more often. If he can improve on those two weaknesses, then the sky is the limit for him if he goes to North Carolina to play basketball in 2024.
