The 6-foot-4, 185-pound multi-sport athlete, who also plays baseball and runs track, helped lead his Callaway team to a 9-3 record last season and a 6-2 district mark before the Chargers lost to Vicksburg in the playoffs.
Scott will bring a big, athletic frame to the wide receiver room in Oxford.

Scott held an array of offers and ultimately chose the Rebs over Mississippi State, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Houston, Tulane, Arkansas State, Louisiana Tech, Memphis, Southern Miss, UNLV, Georgia State, Yale, Jackson State, Alcorn State, Austin Peay and Grambling State, among others.
His commitment marks the third for the 2024 class as he joins 4-star Basha High School (AZ) QB Demond Williams Jr. and 3-star Winona (MS) LB Fred Clark who chose the Rebels over State earlier this week.
Scott ranks as the No. 70 wide receiver in the nation and is the No. 10 athlete in the state by the industry-generated 247Sports Composite index.
Scott will have a busy spring ahead with his additional sports, as well as making plays with the Mesh Academy 7v7 team coached by former Rebel greats Shay Hodge and Mike Espy.
In addition to being a talented playmaker, Scott is also just as noteworthy in the classroom. When you get an offer from Yale to play ball, you must be pretty smart.

Ole Miss wide receivers coach Derrick Nix remained diligent in his recruitment campaign to keep Scott’s services here in the ‘Sip and it paid off.
