Updated scouting report on Top247 4-star cornerback Aaron Scott
247Sports gives a closer look at Aaron Scott, a promising cornerback at Springfield, Ohio High School. The Top247 four-star quarterback is a top 20 player in the country and a top 10 player in Ohio, and his stock could rise even higher in the near future.
The 6-foot, 170-pound Scott has an athletic profile in three sports and an impressive performance in the fall of 2022, when he recorded five interceptions, including two returned for touchdowns, as well as one fumble recovery and seven pass interruptions.
To date, Scott has reported 30 proposals including Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio State and many more including Florida State, USC, Oregon, Purdue and Louisville since mid-January. Ohio State received the first two 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions that were made in the fall. Here’s 247Sports’ updated intelligence report on Scott.
247SPORTS SCOUT REPORT
Adequate height with good length tested at the beginning of the junior season. Looks and plays bigger than this tested size.
The length shows up in the production of the balls. Not only made five passes as a junior, but also had a hand in everything else.
Destructive and constantly competitive at the point of capture. Good ball handling skills, as evidenced by stats.
The hyper competitive nature you like to see on the outside. Plays consciously with obvious anticipatory instincts. Demonstrated competence in various reports, and also sometimes went beyond.
Excellent sports profile with basketball and limited track and field experience. Bouncing him off the bounce like a one-foot jumper in a sophomore campaign with hoops.
A terrific functional athlete whose proven performance in tests and on the track indicates the possibility of improving overall explosive strength, including in top gear. Strong in reach but should add bulk and strength as an invader to be more consistent in this department.
A bona fide high-end defender prospect who can probably live in the corner in the long run, but can also be of value to the roster as a secondary chameleon. Potential to become a perennial powerhouse with an NFL Draft prospect.
