Miami Football 2015 Player Profile: Rashawn Scott

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 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

Returns after missing all of 2014 with injury.  Also missed time with injuries/suspensions his junior and freshman seasons.

Had his best season in 2012 with 35 catches for 512 yards, and 3 TDs.

Will be wearing #11 this season.

And according to many, comes out of the Spring as the top returning WR in the program.

Certainly his talent is undeniable.

Summary:  Scott is a smooth athlete, with en excellent combination of speed and size. Will this be the year he finally plays a full season and becomes a big time player?  That would be a development Miami would be thrilled with. Minus Clive Walford and Phillip Dorsett, UM needs new threats to emerge in the passing game. Scott should be an excellent target for Brad Kaaya, because he can fly on the outside, but also isn't afraid to work between the hashes. So how productive can he be?  To me, that depends on two factors.  First and foremost, staying on the field. But second, how well Stacy Coley bounces back.  While they are different players, Coley has the talent to match Scott as a #1 type. That is of course if Coley can return to his freshman form, after a puzzling and horrendous sophomore season. But even if Coley plays well, and it means less targets for Scott, it also means less focus from the defense. I expect Scott to play very well this year either way,  and catch about 40-45 passes for 600+ yards and 6-7 TDs. For the Hurricanes offense to hum, he needs to be that kind of factor.

Stay tuned for more player profiles from SOTU as we count down to kick off.
