Cam and Les haven't got a Clue what to do with this kid.
Many other programs and coaching staffs do.

"Great genes. Hopefully he can make an awesome play or 2 to help win a NC like his dad did at Georgia."

Except his dad played at Southern. You got the wrong Lindsey Scott.

He'll do fine here. LSU will be lucky to get him.

I saw a lot of promising things. For a talent like this you have to give him keys to the house and let him develop.

Brees is 6'0 and possibly wasn't even that tall when he entered college. Russell Wilson is 5'11. Aaron Murray was 6'0.

You know what these guys had in common? They played in heavy passing offenses and pro style offenses and did more than fine I might add.

Scott is very cerebral and has excellent athletic gifts.

I still hope we go to power running spread if we get him and Narcisse. It's the logical option.

The biggest knock on him is his height. Listing him at 5'11" is being generous. The kid's a player, no doubt, but it'll be interesting to see how he can compete against SEC-level competition.

Drew Brees was considered too short as well.

We should have offered him a long time ago.

Great quickness, nice release, good arm and solid accuracy - none which will matter after Les and Cam have scrambled his brain. And yeah, I could definitely see them turning him into RS 2.0, because all they see are NFL formulas, and this team is just a pro farm team to them.

People on here who have not seen him have no idea of his talent. He is at home in the pocket. He is classified as a dual threat because his offense he ran in HS called for him to run the ball and the read/option. He has a good grasp of the passing game and throws over the middle very well. In his HS career he has thrown just about every conceivable pass route you can think of...

Why?

I hope he gets a fair chance. I have had enough of players that don't seem to have the ability to grasp the complexities of playing the game at the speed they have to in college
