Pitt Made Four-Star DB Aaron Scott's Top 12

The Pitt Panthers are a finalist for a four-star defensive back from Ohio.

PITTSBURGH -- The Pitt Panthers are in the running for a four-star defensive back from Ohio. Aaron Scott, considered one of the best players from his state and a top cornerback prospect in the class of 2024, released a top 12 that included Pitt alongside some of college football's blue bloods. 

The Panthers were grouped with a list of finalists that also featured Oregon, USC, Ohio State, Michigan, Florida State, Penn State, Notre Dame, Kentucky, Louisville, Tennessee and Oklahoma. Scott trimmed a set of 30 offers down to these dozen schools. 

Scott is a consensus four-star prospect. Both 247Sports and On3 consider him the best player in Ohio's class of 2024 while ESPN and Rivals both have him in the top four. On3 and 247 also have him pegged as a top-five cornerback prospect nationally. He visited Notre Dame, Georgia, Tennessee and Ohio State this winter.

"Aaron Scott prides himself on being a lockdown cover corner, and he 'loves it' when opponents attempt to throw his way," his On3 player bio reads. "They rarely did in 2022, but he still managed to pick off the ball five times and return those interceptions for 104 yards and two scores. He also had seven pass breakups and recovered a fumble as a junior. Scott would go on to earn all-area, all-region and all-state honors in 2022 and play a key role in helping Springfield (Ohio) High School play for a state title."
