Talented dual-threat quarterback Lindsey Scott spoke with WAFB Sports Anchor Jacques Doucet on Wednesday night and said that his final two schools are Maryland and LSU.

Scott will be making an official visit to LSU this weekend.


Doucet was able to speak with Scott on Wednesday after he received the 2015 Warrick Dunn Award and Sportsline Player of the Year award.

Scott, a 5-11, 205-pound prospect from Zachary, LA (Zachary HS) was originally committed to Syracuse but decommitted on January 17. The talented QB lead his team to a state championship this past season and was recently named Louisiana Gatorade Player of the Year.

The Ivies only formally give out "need based" aid, and can't offer athletic or academic schollies. Ivy League rule, not NCAA. But choice athletes are certainly given some informal preference in the awarding of aid. I'm not sure what the Scott family's financial situation is, but he would all but certainly receive a very generous financial aid package. Harvard is a no-loan institution as well, so it's as good as a scholly. Hell better. They can't just yank it if he quits the team.

Go to Harvard, kid. Seriously.

I should have worded that different. Of course it can pay for a kid's schooling but can they use it for someone going there for athletics?

I understand that but the Ivy League is a conference under the NCAA. Thus, they have to follow NCAA rules as well.

Would the NCAA allow them to use the endowment fund to pay for a kid's schooling? My guess is no.

I don't think he is a threat for any duel. He's pretty smart and not into crime. :]

Just giving you a hard time LSUvet72. I'm pretty sure you know it's dual. At least I would hope, since you're a vet. Lol.

Any duel threat, Mr.Football QB with brains enough to get his education at Harvard can and will master a complicated playbook which LSU has not had in a duel threat QB in a while, as we have had for years an over simplified playbook to LSU's detriment.

Scott needs to seriously think about how he will feel playing football in the feeble Ivy, two thousand miles away from real food, while his friends are playing before 100,000 fans in the SEC?

LSU recruiters need to get Scott connected with the many Drs.( Billy Cannon,Tommy Cassanova(Ophalmologist in Lafayette) who played football at LSU, played in NFL and enjoyed/now enjoying a successful medical practice afterwards in Louisiana.

I dont understand the maryland attraction. Seems like it would be LSU or Harvard- Depending on what the kid wants to do career-wise. If he wants to go law school, med school or politics, harvard. Otherwise LSU to stay home and make local connections.

saint tiger, the "no athletic scholarship thing" is an Ivy League thing, not an NCAA rule.

Thread title is misleading to say the least. Doesn't look like he narrowed it down to 2. That looks like 4 to me. LSU, Harvard, Maryland and Tulane. But then again, I don't have a degree from Harvard so I'm not sure. Lol.

Are they allowed to use that endowment on athletics? I'd be interested to know. My guess is it would be against NCAA rules.

Harvard all freaking day

A Harvard degree is nice, but let's not act like you automatically make a million a year just by getting an undergrad degree from Harvard. I would say that if he was a starter for LSU, the connections/notoriety from that is just as beneficial to his non-football career. If he's really smart, he can always go to Harvard or another prestigious university for grad/professional school.

Harvard would be an incredible spot for him, I have seen him in the gym and he would be a rest for up there. Plus the education would set him and his family up for years to come.

This is correct. I have a friend whose son played baseball at Harvard. The father "Coach, my son would love to play here but we can't afford it." Coach found out what they could afford and son received scholarships for the remainder. I love LSU but I wouldn't blame anyone a bit for getting a Harvard degree

"I thought Harvard doesn't provide scholarships to athletes."

they have about a 35-40 billion dollar endowment...I'm sure they can make something happen

Who'd have thought that under this staff, we could be losing the Louisiana player of the year to Maryland of all places. Circumstances I know, but still
