Houston, you have a… new football player. Unofficially.
Back in February, it was reported that Missouri’s Kam Scott had decided to test the transfer portal waters. A little more than four months later, the wide receiver announced on Instagram this week that he has committed to the Houston football team.
Barring the unexpected, Scott will be forced to sit out the 2020 season. Doing so would then leave the Texas native with two years of eligibility starting in 2021.

Scott was a three-star member of the Class of 2018 for Missouri. The Manvel, Tex., product was rated as the No. 60 player in the Lone Star State regardless of position. He was also the No. 71 receiver in the country on the 247Sports.com composite.
Scott’s first two seasons in Columbia, the receiver totaled 542 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 25 receptions. Included in that were 17 catches and 328 yards a year ago. The latter was third on the Tigers. The former was seventh. Which means, though, that his 19.3 yards per catch far and away led Mizzou.
The unofficial addition of Scott for Houston will serve as the second Power addition to the AAC school’s football roster in a week. Late last month, UH confirmed that Texas Tech running back Ta'Zhawn Henry has officially signed.
