Scott said he is weighing his options

Bryson Scott said he thought he would get a scholarship offer from Indiana eventually. He just did not expect it to be last weekend.

The Indiana coaching staff called Scott’s parents and offered the 6-foot-1 Fort Wayne Northop sophomore a scholarship after watching him finish out the month of July.

“I was kind of surprised at first,” Scott said. “I kind of had the idea that they would eventually, but I wasn’t expecting it over the weekend.”

Indiana joins Purdue in having offered the point guard. Ohio State, Scott said, is also showing interest.

Purdue got a jump on Scott by offering him earlier this summer and inviting him for an unofficial visit.

“I like the coaching staff,” Scott said. “They showed me a good time when I went down there and visited.”

Indiana will have Scott on campus later this month for an unofficial visit.

Scott said he is planning on making his decision next summer. He said he is “liking” both Indiana and Purdue.

“But I am still weighing my options,” Scott said.


We saw Scott a couple of times during the adidas May Classic. He’s a strong, physical point guard who can play on both ends. Needs to improve his jump shot, but he has the build to play in the Big Ten.

Here is a video from WANE of Scott playing in high school.


  1. No comments, I am surprised. I surmise no one expects this young baller to become the best guard in the B10. But I do believe he may by the time he is a Junior and Senior he could be in contention as the best sixth man in the league.

  2. He would be a nice fallback guy if we couldn’t land the better players in the class.
    Give me Baker, Hicks, Hartman, Smotherman, D Davis…

  3. Pretty good post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed reading your blog posts. Any way I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon. Big thanks for the useful info

  4. This kid is as strong with the ball as any freshmen I’ve seen in a long time. He is fearless and gets to the rim. His outside shot is improving. He’s definitely big 10 level. For a Fort Wayne comparison, I think if he keeps working hard he’ll end up better than Eshaunte “Bear” Jones, who had a great high school career and is a sub for Nebraska after initially committing to Indiana. He’s stronger than “Bear” but needs to improve his outside shot. As a casual Indiana fan from Fort Wayne (more a fan of all things HS/college Indiana), I like this offer by Crean.
