When the Cowboys signed South Florida running back Darrell Scott it ended a journey that began in 2008 when he was a highly recruited Parade All-American running back out of Ventura, Ca.
Scott narrowed his choices to Colorado, Texas, LSU and UCLA.
The Longhorns were all in on Scott and hoped to secure his services to potentially give them a game-breaking running back. The Longhorns even suggested that Scott could win the Heisman Trophy at Texas.
In the end, he shunned the Longhorns and chose Colorado. Scott flamed out at Colorado and then transferred to South Florida where he rushed for 824 yards and five touchdowns in 2011. Even though he had one year of eligibility left, Scott opted for the NFL Draft.
He went undrafted but landed with the Cowboys as a college free agent.
