Should Scott injury be a concern for USF

The USF spring game didn’t settle anything in regards to who will be the Bulls main ball carrier next season and it has to raise some concern about heralded transfer running back Darrell Scott.

Scott, who was rated the country’s top running back when he was a high school senior in California, injured his calf muscle and will have to sit out for at least two weeks, according to Bulls head coach Skip Holtz.

That can’t be encouraging news considering the 6-1, 225 pound Scott never lived up to expectations when he was at Colorado because of injuries. At Colorado, he had arthroscopic knee surgery and it was reported that UCLA didn’t want to take him after he decided to transfer because coaches thought he might be injury prone, among other things.

Dontae Aycock, a transfer from Auburn, who is in the running back mix with returnees Demetris Murray and Marcus Shaw, didn’t have a very productive day Saturday with 23 yards on nine carries.
Shaw didn’t suit up because on injured wrist and Murray, who played well last year before a series of injuries slowed him done, led the running backs in the Spring Game with 57 yards on 10 carries.

Aycock, who as a senior played quarterback at Tampa Chamberlain rushed for more than 1,400 yards, could be used in the Wildcat, which the Bulls would like to employ this season.
