It’s been a pretty good week on the recruiting trail for the West Virginia Mountaineers, and Blaine Scott just made it better.
They secured 3-star athlete and defensive end TJ Banks on Wednesday. And on Thursday, Scott, a 3-star offensive guard, committed to Morgantown.

Scott was originally committed to Ole Miss, but decommitted on July 30 in the wake of the Hugh Freeze scandal. He’d received a plethora of offers from other schools, including Ohio State, Arkansas, Miami (FL) and Pittsburgh.
He stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 310 pounds. He currently attends Sciotoville High School in Portsmouth, Ohio.
With a 24/7 Sports composite rating of .8822, Scott is the second-highest rated recruit in West Virginia’s 2018 class. He’s the second guard in the class to commit, following 3-star Briason Mays.
