WVU Hopes to Tap Florida for Another Receiver


It's always a difficult task to for an out-of-state school to come into Florida and take away one of its most talented players. West Virginia has been lucky enough to steal a few so far, in the form of Kenneth Myers (Jacksonville) and Dante Campbell (East Ridge).

Scott is a 6-2, 198-pound receiver who runs the 40-yard dash in roughly 4.5 seconds.

Now the WVU staff hopes to press its luck and invade Melbourne to sign one of middle-Florida's best-kept secrets in Rashawn Scott. The Mountaineer staff, lead by wideout coach Lonnie Galloway, hasn't been alone in coveting the talented playmaker, as it appears his list of suitors may start to grow -- no surprise to Scott and his coaches.

“We just sent out my highlight film from this season,” said Scott. “I'm hoping to hear from some more schools.”

“Everything is going good as far as recruiting goes,” said Scott.

Scott may be a man of few words, but his play on the field speaks volumes. He's helped lead his Melbourne Hustlers to a 11-0 season and a first round match up with Providence high school out of Jacksonville, FL.

With the season winding down Scott has started to set up his official visits. First on his plate is a trip to Morgantown to see the Mountaineers take on Big East rival Rutgers on December 4th. No other visit has been set up to this point, but schools such as USF, Michigan State and Illinois have shown major interest in Scott and all are working on setting up visits.

Will WVU make his top group?

“Yes sir, they most certainly will,” said Scott.

Scott has no timetable to make a decision.
