Ute football how I have missed you: Kenneth Scott.

As I lay here in my rack on a Sunday morning in Sandistan and try to catch up on all things Utes I came across Kenneth Scott's 2012 highlights.....I apparently forgot just how good he was.

From the film I was reminded that he is a legitimate 6'3" 211 lb. WR with basketball skills.(He goes up in the air and WINS balls like a rebound, and displays excellent body control during flight) He's not a true speedster like Dres, but he runs crisp routes and plays true to his size by using his body to shield the ball from defenders. He also has very large hands and long arms which assist him in his catching radius, meaning a ball doesn't have to be as close to him in order for him to get a hand on it and hopefully bring it into his body for a completion. He has a very dangerous "dig route" where he'll run a fade until the defender either starts to turn his hips or looks away and then he'll stop the route and make himself available for a reception. His timing is immaculate.

He at times made John Hays look like a PAC12 QB and helped a Freshman Wilson adjust to the college game.He and Schulz even looked good last spring. Bringing all this back with him to our beloved Utes in 2014 could make a huge difference. Dres did a good job last year as the first receiving option but what drove us crazy about Dres is where Kenneth Scott's strengths lie. I think that his presence will open up secondaries and get our 3rd and 4th receivers open. Giving space and pace to a guy like Delshawn Mclellon or Bubba Poole could prove lethal, especially with the complimenting styles of Scott and Anderson. Clearly we won't know exactly how Scott has healed until we see him, but I think Utah has an opportunity to be overwhelming through the air in 2014, with almost any of our QBs on the roster.
