Scott is a hard working MIF who made several improvements to his game during his time at the Under Armour Fall Classic. He is a very coachable player who is always looking for ways to get better. Foot speed has improved as he now runs the 60 in 7.10. Defensively, Scott has quick/fluid actions working from right to left through the GB. He presents his glove, fields the ball out in front and has soft hands. He is versatile enough to play anywhere in the INF. Offensively, this RHH has a balanced/athletic setup with rhythm to load. Hands are quick as he barrels the ball up consistently. A threat once on base - Scott is aggressive and reads the downward angle well, seeing the ball in the dirt and getting solid jumps. A little bit of added strength which will come with a weight program along with physical maturity will help to take his game to the next level. Scott has the tools that will translate well into the next level.
