U of L Commit L.J. Scott Did Something Incredible Last Friday

The Louisville coaching staff knew they had landed a rare combination of size and athleticism when they received a commitment from L.J. Scott back in June, but I'm not sure they knew just how rare the young man's skill set is.

For evidence, just check out what the Marion Harding (OH) star did last Friday:


For what it's worth, the run was called back because of an NFHS (National Federation of State High School Associations) rule which says that players are not allowed to hurdle other players unless they're grounded. As a result, Scott was assessed a 15-yard personal foul penalty and the touchdown was negated.

Still, I have a feeling we'll be seeing L.J. on national television shortly.

Scott, who also plays linebacker and safety, broke the Marion Harding school rushing record last season when he ran for 1,478 yards and 18 touchdowns. He averaged an unreal 7.5 yards per carry and 164.2 yards per game.

Though most scouting services list him as a running back, 247 Sports ranks Scott as the No. 3 fullback in the class of 2014.
