The Nevada Wolf Pack recruiting class landed their second commit for the 2014 cycle in tight end Brandon Scott out of Yucaipa, Calif. Scott is playing wide receiver at the high school level, but will bulk up and play tight end once he arrives on the Nevada campus. Currently, Scott is 6-foot-4 and 215-pounds, but he hopes to be near 240 pounds.
Scott made the decision to commit to Nevada because he liked the coaching staff, plus it was the only school who showed interest and had an offer on the table. Other schools that had interest in Scott were Colorado, Colorado State, Boise State, San Diego State, Arizona State, Wyoming plus others.
He plans to stick to his commitment and take his official visit to Reno sometime during upcoming football season. Plus, Scott plans to visit the school in July.
His high school coach Justin Price talked about the type of person Scott is:
"Brandon, first of all, is an outstanding person. He has high character and high integrity,"Price said Tuesday. "It helps that he's a 6-foot-4, 215-pound receiver. He has exceptional ball skills and great hands. ... They're going to get everything they want from him. He's a great guy in the locker room."
In Scott's junior season he hauled in 66 receptions for 1,002 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also earned all-area team honors this last season. As a sophomore he also led the team in receptions with 20 catches with 422 yards and also four scores.
