Arkansas offensive tackle prospect Robert Scott committed to Ole Miss last June, and since then, he’s visited Oxford thrice, including his official visit to the Rebels last month. Last weekend, Scott visited Florida State for the first time— and now he’s signed on as a Seminole.

Scott (6’6, 295) has flipped commitment from the Rebs to the ’Noles and has made it official. He’s a three-star prospect who helps Florida State add depth at a position of very high need.

Scott is considered the No. 5 prospect from Arkansas, the country’s 38th best OT prospect, and No. 503, nationally, overall. He also has offers from Arkansas, TCU, Tennessee, Nebraska, Mississippi State, Louisville, Missouri, SMU, and others.

Scouting report:

Scott is an athletic and agile offensive tackle. With natural knee and ankle bend, he is able to create power from his lower body to drive block or anchor in pass protection. He has a heavy punch in his pass set and looks like a natural left tackle. Scott shows a willingness to be physical in his blocking. While Scott is not a day-one contributor, he shows plenty of upside.
