Scott an emerging Peach State secret

THE RIVALS150: Class of 2014 - Class of 2015
One of the best kept secrets in the Peach State's 2015 class is nestled
away down in southeast Georgia. McIntosh Academy's Trevon Scott doesn't
receive a ton of national attention, but he had a big junior year and is looking
to follow it up with strong travel season.
"I had a really good year," Scott told Rivals.com. "I got region player of the
year on our side of the region. Our team went 18-10 and lost in the second round
of the state playoffs. I averaged 18.6 points and probably around 11 or 12
rebounds per game."
High-majors started to take notice of Scott's ability last summer when he shined
at the Peach State Summer Showcase. Since then, he's had a steady dose of
high-major programs calling him regularly.
"I've been talking to Georgia, UAB, Alabama,
Clemson, Cincinnati, Tennessee and there are a few
others. I get contacted the most by UAB and Cincinnati. I got offers now from
Georgia, Cincinnati, and UAB and then Clemson and Alabama said they want me to
visit first before they offer."
Scott hasn't had a chance to get and see many campuses, but he did take one
unofficial visit back during football season to see the Bulldogs play.
"I went up to Georgia for an unofficial visit. It was fun. We went to the
football game against LSU. They showed us the basketball facility and
everything. It was cool."
Cincinnati is one of the more recent schools to jump into the mix with Scott and
they just might have an advantage over everybody else.
"They are one of the schools I have on my list. I've been watching them since
they contacted me. Coach Davis contacted me and came down watched me play not
too long ago. The thing they have over everybody else is that I have family that
goes there and my aunt works there."
Tennessee, like Cincinnati, has some advantages of their own if they choose to
prioritize Scott going forward.
"When I was growing up, I always liked Tennessee. I don't know what it is. I
like their coaches there. I like how the head coach talks to the players. I've
also known Jordan McRae for a long time because he played in the same AAU
program."
Under head coach Jerrod Haase, UAB has signed players out of the Peach
State in each of the past two classes and are hoping to come back for more in
2015.
"Coach Ehsan and watched me workout and the head coach, Coach Haase, came down
too. They stay in contact with me the most. I like the way he talks to me
because it's not just about basketball. He asks about my school work and
everything else too."
At the moment, three schools are standing out to Scott.
"Right now, I like Cincinnati, Tennessee and UAB. I'll probably make my decision
after I visit all the schools that are high on my list."
