Tahlequah Sequoyah quarterback Brayden Scott plans to graduate at mid-term and enroll at the University of Memphis for the spring semester, according to his father, Brent Scott.
Scott committed to the Tigers in June, but had entertained other recruiting options in recent months. He decided to hold firm on his pledge after recent meetings with Memphis head coach Justin Fuente, the former Union High quarterback.
According to his father, Scott will sign a financial-aid agreement at 3 p.m. Wednesday at Midwest Sporting Goods, 9529 East 51st Street and plans to enroll for Memphis' spring semester, which stars Jan. 17.
The 6-foot-2, 195-pounder threw for 90 touchdowns and over 7,000 yards in four varsity starting seasons, helping lead Sequoyah to a 35-7 record in that span.
The Indians went 9-1 and won a district title on the field in 2012, but forfeited all nine wins for using ineligible players.
Scott is rated a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, rated 33rd nationally among dropback passers and the No. 9 prospect in Oklahoma.
