And I'm not referring to the obvious: his talent. No, there is far more to this thing than just Scott's talent. With a greater impact than his talent alone can accomplish.
Texas needs to land Darrell Scott for a number of reasons. Sure, he's talented, but signing him would do as much for the program now as Vince Young did when he signed. Maybe more.
Before you throw me into the "dhab" category, first, check my UID. #10 bitches!! Second, this may give Mack the confidence, desire, determination, or whatever it is that you want to call it, to actually go after these high profile 5* OOS guys late in the recruiting season. So many have been begging Mack to at least give some effort to these guys. Well, it's looking very good that this effort is paying off with Scott.
Move forward to the 2009 class. Imagine for a moment if you will.... QB - Russell Shepard handing off to RB - Darrell Scott, running behind our seasoned O-line?!! Vince had a very good RB duo in Jamaal and Selvin, but neither were considered the RB that Scott is coming out of High School. I guess you could consider a tandem like that similar to if Adrian Peterson had chosen the good guys.
Could be exciting times on the horizon.
