The yards continue to pile up for 2011 RB Dawan Scott of Irmo High School. Friday night Scott was doing it up once again to the tune of 303 yards on 30 carries scoring 5 touchdowns. The victory over has Irmo's record now at 5-1 on the season. Saturday though Dawan was on the road making another visit and he spoke with SCPrepNation.com about his most recent trips to two Southern Conference schools.
"Georgia Southern was too fun for me! I love it there. The football team is real good and all the coaches up there showed so much respect. They really love me a lot. I can tell because they showed me more attention than some of the other prospects there. I can really see myself at Georgia Southern. Coach Seward is mad cool, and the funny thing is Coach Banks from Western Carolina is Coach Seward's brother so they go at it a lot especially since they are both recruiting me."
The previous weekend Scott journeyed up to Cullowhee to check out the Catamounts of Western Carolina to see their campus and meet up with some of the staff. "Western Carolina is really nice up there. The mountains and all is nice to see. Coach Banks loves me I can tell he wants me pretty bad. I think I'm the only back he's recruiting that I know of. They have a good program up there, Coach Banks is one of the coolest guys you can meet. He's young and he is a great running back coach."
"It's just going to be a really hard decision for me because Western Carolina runs the i-formation and that's what I'm used to and I love it. Georgia Southern runs the triple option like Georgia Tech and I've never run that before so that would be totally new to me right there."
More schools are starting to ring the phones at Irmo for Dawan though. Scott says he will take the SAT this coming Saturday in hopes of qualifying. Scott talked about his abilities in the classroom as well.
"I think that's the reason I haven't gotten any offers yet, because I haven't taken the SAT yet. My grades are pretty good though, I have a 3.1 GPA."
Scott says he feels pretty sure that he'll receive offers from Western Carolina and Georgia Southern when he qualifies. Others are already starting in on the Irmo prospect so there's a strong possiblity that he could be looking at more offers once he gets his qualifying score and transcripts are sent out.
Through 6 games this season Scott has piled up 1283 rushing yards and scored 21 touchdowns. In a couple of those games Scott sat in the second half to let underclassmen get reps as the game was well in hand for Irmo. Scott says he's averaging a little over 10 yards per carry during his senior season as he's been crediting his offensive line and teammates for most of his success.
