Scott Free

I'm Jedi Master, Mase Windu, what you been through
Keep MC's heads wrapped like Erykah Ba-du

The soap opera that was the recruitment of Darrell Scott finally ended today with the nation’s #1 running back picking Our Team, the Colorado Buffaloes. It came down to CU and Texas, and while Texas has about everything a young man can want in a football team and University (except for having to deal with Matthew McCounaghey), Dan Hawkins pulled another upset.

Fans of both sides made this an interesting past few weeks, with recruiting gurus practically staking him, allegations of Darrell’s mom being offered a plush job, and of course the played out “scandal” and even a few 5th Down and weed smoker references. AS I commented on another site earlier, I haven’t seen this much fawning over a 17 year old since Kip Winger sang about it.

Scott might be immediately penciled in as the starter at CU, with his 6’2”, 215lb frame and 4.4 speed, he is easily the biggest and fastest ball carrier on the CU roster. And he hasn’t even stepped on campus yet.

He will be tested early, with early season games at Florida State, versus West Virginia, and then the spurned Longhorns come to Boulder. The Buffs are starting to get the pieces in place to make consistent runs at the Big 12 North, then take the next step to the Big 12 title and BCS Bowls, and Scott will be a key part of the hopeful resurgence.

As excited as I am about D Scott, the real good gets of this class are Major and Katoa.

I think Polk (if he qualifies academically) could be a servicable back in this offense, but those two are going to help the defense return to it's dominant ways in the very near future.

Scott is the real deal, I saw his vids and he is like Adrian Pete from Vikings.

Him and Polk could be a modern version of Maroney and Barber when they were Gophers. Or Cadillac/Brown at Auburn.

Shaun Mohler will step in ASAP at LB too.

I've seen Scott play 3 times on tape, and once live. I went down to the Anaheim ESPNZone to watch his signing announcement live. I think he's the best high school tailback I've ever seen live (better than Marc Tyler at USC, better than Marcus Houston, Bobby Purify, Maurice Greer, Darnell McDonald, Chester Burnett, and Emmitt Mosely). Note- I could only get into a very far away portion of ESPNZone by faking my way in as a press member, but it was still worth it. There were probably 20 CU fans outside, and I went and slapped five with all of them.

GO BUFFS!
