It’s been no secret that Florida State has had some struggles in the past two years with the offensive line. The Seminoles hope that the Georgia native Brady Scott can provide some additional depth to the offensive front.
The three-star offensive tackle is listed at 6’5 and weighs in at 285 pounds. According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, Scott is the No. 109 recruit out of Georgia, comes in nationally at No. 93 on the rankings of offensive tackles, and is the No. 1,036 overall player for the class of 2017.
Scott was offered back in July and committed to FSU in October, choosing the Seminoles over Mississippi State. Scott committed before taking his official visit, which wasn’t until January of this year. On top of FSU and Mississippi State, Scott held offers from Georgia Tech, Wake Forest, Virginia, Cincinnati, Buffalo, and South Carolina.
The Seminoles’ desperate need of size and athleticism on the offensive line is where Scott hopes to make an immediate impact. As a double-sport athlete in high school, his versatility could provide an opportunity to establish a role on the Florida State offense.
Here’s our scouting report on Scott, from one of our staff writers who is also a high school coach.
Brady Scott is the lone offensive lineman FSU is taking in #Tribe17. He is listed at 6’5, 285 lbs and can excel at guard as a punishing run blocker, or as an offensive tackle.
Scott has an excellent first step, firing off the ball and locking his hands on the defender. Once engaged, he makes it a point to punish the opposition. He effectively drives blocks with a wide base while keeping his feet moving.
Often times in his senior film, Scott blocks his man through the whistle or until he drives him into the ground. He also shows the ability and athleticism to block in space and get to the second level.
Scott has a good feel and the awareness to keep his feet moving, get his eyes to the next level, and displace linebackers pursuing the ball.
Coach Trickett loves guys who play hard and play with an attitude. Brady Scott seems to fit that mold perfectly.
