Havelock High School is poised to win a state championship this season. A big reason for the team’s success has been the play of sophomore running back Derrell Scott. The 2014 prospect talks about recruiting and more.

Derrell Scott (5’11/180) of Havelock High School in Havelock, N.C. has already had quite the high school career and he is only a sophomore. Scott started on the varsity on both sides of the ball as a freshman. He already had over 2,200 yards rushing in his first two seasons. Scott, who grew up a Florida fan, is already generating a buzz on the recruiting trial.

“I have one offer from East Carolina,” said Scott. “I have heard a little bit from South Carolina, North Carolina, Oregon, North Carolina State, and Virginia.”

The Rams’ running back recently visited South Carolina and enjoyed the trip.

“I was down there for the Florida game,” he said. “It was nice getting to meet the players and seeing what the atmosphere was like. It was also nice seeing what the college world was like compared to high school. I also visited ECU earlier in the season.”

Scott is an explosive player and at only fifteen years old has the chance to become a major college prospect. He is a threat to go the distance every time he touches the ball. The 2014 prospect is a versatile running back. He runs well inside the tackles and on the perimeter. The Havelock sophomore has over 1,700 yards rushing, 250 receiving, and 25 total touchdowns. He also is a standout defensive back for the Rams and returned an interception for a touchdown in Friday night’s Eastern Regional Championship against Cleveland. Havelock will play West Rowan next Saturday for the North Carolina 3A State Championship. Scott bench presses 250 pounds, squats, 355, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds.
