On3’s No. 13 ranked player in 2024, Cam Scott, has set an official visit date with South Carolina. The Lexington (SC) High shooting guard will travel across town to visit on October 22 when No. 6 ranked Texas A&M is in town to play the Gamecocks in football.

On3 previously reported an official visit date with Oregon, for October 1, that is no longer on the books. Scott will now visit Florida State that weekend. 

Florida State will get the first official visit, and head coach Leonard Hamilton will be by Lexington (SC) High on the first day D-I coaches can be out for the Fall live evaluation period. Look for Auburn and Texas to also be in the mix for upcoming visits.

Scott carries over 20 D-I offers. He was 5A All-State for the second time last season after averaging 21.1 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game. The 6-foot-5 shooting guard was the leading scorer for one of the best 16u teams – Team United – on the Nike EYBL Circuit, averaging 11.8 points and shooting 50.7 percent from the field in 15.4 minutes per game. 

Scott also led the NBPA Top 100 Camp in three-point shooting, knocking down 50 percent of his shots and winning a camp championship.

South Carolina head coach Lamont Paris, very publicly, got a commitment from five-star Columbia, South Carolina native GG Jackson in the 2022 cycle.

Scott’s scouting report

Cam Scott is a lengthy wing prospect with a lot of pop. The natural tools are very impressive all the way around. Scott has a mature game, plays within the flow of the offense, and rarely forces things. The jump shot release can be cleaned up, but the pull-up is smooth. Since the summer, Scott has developed his footwork and handle in the half-court, creating space to elevate into his jumper. Scott can take over a game and carry his team. I would like to see him develop the comfort to take a more aggressive alpha role on his teams. He is very efficient in his game, and his ability to score with a less is more approach is mature. Strength will come, and he is tracking as one of the top players in the 2024 class.
