Miami Player Profile: Rashawn Scott

Joel Auerbach

In an effort to keep even the most hardcore Miami fan up to date on their favorite players, SOTU will be running a Player Profile series. In these posts, our writers will profile two players from each position that they think should get more face time. They will recap their previous year, or in some cases, preview what may be to come. That way, when the season get's here, you hopefully will have a new found love for the team on the field.

Rashawn Scott

Senior - WR - 6'2 205 - Melbourne, Fl

After a break out sophomore season (35 catches - 512 yards - 3 TDs) only played in 4 games last year (shoulder injury) and produced just 3 catches.

Also missed a big chunk of his freshman campaign due to injuries, and was suspended briefly for violating team rules late in 2012.

Keeping Scott on the field has been the biggest challenge during his time in Coral Gables. The good news however is that he appears to finally be healthy and had a big spring.

Here's a brief taste of what he can do when all is right:

Summary: Scott is a silky smooth athlete with good size and 4.5 speed.  He is both a vertical threat and a nice target in the red zone.  I have little doubt that whomever starts at QB for the 'Canes would benefit greatly from the presence of a healthy #80. But can he stay injury free? And can he focus enough to avoid any off the field troubles? Stacy Coley is the clear cut #1 right now for UM at WR. After that it's anyone's guess who else will see the most targets. Herb Waters and Malcolm Lewis would seem to be the frontrunners for the slot position. Scott has the most natural ability on the outside with the exception of Coley. With just one big season under his belt in 3 years there is no easy prediction for what kind of production to expect in 2014. I say RS puts it together for about 30 catches 400 plus yards and 3-4 TDs.

Stay tuned for more player profiles as we count down to Labor Day Vs Louisville.
