    Possibly the most highly-touted recruit to ever commit to CU, Scott was considered one of the top 10 2008 prospects by every scouting service. Counted on as a starter in 2008, Scott had some academic work to complete the summer before camp and arrived about 20 lbs overweight. Working into shape during camp, Scott was named the starter for the opener versus CSU. He injured his ankle during the season and was plagued by nagging injuries all year. He played in 11 games, carrying the ball 87 times for 343 yards (3.94 avg) and 1 TD to finish 2nd on the team to fellow true freshman Rodney Stewart in rushing.

    Scott got himself into fantastic shape over the winter of 2009 and showed up to spring practice at around 5% body fat. He dominated the Buffs spring game with 154 yards rushing while leading the team in receptions. He even had the longest punt. However, Scott then showed up to fall camp 20 lbs overweight again. He had 1 carry for 1 yard in the opener against CSU, but came back with an excellent 1st half performance against Toledo (12 carries for 85 yards), but injured his knee in the process. He played the next 3 weeks in limited action, with a total of 10 carries for 9 yards. After a minor surgery to scope the knee, Scott was expected to return for the final 3 or 4 games of the season. Instead, he quit the team. CU won a close game against Texas A&M without him, then lost its last 3 games by 7, 3 and 8 points, respectively.

    Scott is no longer enrolled at CU as of spring 2010. He has filed transfer paperwork but has yet to transfer.
