Red Raider Hoops | State Champion High Jumper to Play for Tubby Smith and Texas Tech?

Could Copperas Cove high jumper and point guard Cory Scott be attending Texas Tech?

I never like doing this, but it is sorta news, I think. I also hate breaking any sort of news and I am sure some subscription based service has already informed you that this has happened, but here goes.

Copperas Cove PG/SG Cory Scott will be attending Texas Tech. Interestingly, Scott originally signed a Letter of Intent with SFA in November of last year, but his Twitter page, which I will not link, says that he is a Texas Tech commit. When Scott committed his high school coach had this to say about Scott:

"Cory is a kid who is going to work hard, but he doesn’t mind when you get on him and do some things like that," White said. "Trust me, I have done so many times in the past few years. But he is that type of kid. He loves the game of basketball, and wants to always get better.

"The only way he is going to get better is to keep pushing and keep pushing, so it is great for him to have coaches who are going to push him like that."

Scott was unrated by Rivals and ESPN but he did have profiles for both. You can watch some highlights of Scott on Hudl, but it really isn't so much highlights as it is chunks of games for Scott. He is #25.

According to MaxPreps, as a junior Scott averaged 17.8 PPG, 3.2 APG and 3.2 RPG.

I couldn't find any stats from his senior season on Scott, but earlier this month, Scott won the Class 5A State High Jump at a height of 7'0". This article further states that Scott still signed a LOI with SFA, but it does say that things are changing. Scott says that he isn't sure if he wants to play basketball or do the high jump, although he says in his Twitter that he's playing basketball for Texas Tech. If Scott matched his junior year in terms of production, I think Texas Tech has a decent player and a pretty incredible athlete.
