Big win for Miami’s basketball recruiting efforts as Durand Scott (SG/SF, 6′4″,2009) has decided to play his college basketball in the sun of Coral Gables. Scott is a player who thrives in the pressure of big games and should get his chance to show off his skills in the ACC.
Scott fits in well with the chip-on-their-shoulder attitude that Miami basketball has adopted in order to survive in the ACC. He will need to work on his handle in order to become a true SG, right now he’s got more of a small forward’s game.
However, he is a skilled addition to the Miami roster next season and Frank Haith continues to bring up the level of Miami basketball.
