Da'Rel Scott - Q&A

Da'Rel Scott is currently fighting Morgan Green for the top running back spot (expect a position battles post tomorrow). He somehow found some time, however, to sit down with UMTerps.com, Maryland's official athletic site, for a quick interview. It's short and fluffy, but still worth the read. Check it out after the jump.

What did you learn from playing with former Maryland running backs Lance Ball and Keon Lattimore?

"I learned a lot of things. They helped me mature with my footsteps, with seeing the holes and just staying in the game. They helped me with being mentally ready because it's a big jump from high school to here."

What have you been up to this summer?

"Just working out. I'm trying to get my legs stronger. I've been taking classes, too. My anatomy class is killing me. This past summer session was pretty much all about my summer classes."

How are workouts going this summer?

"They're going really well. I'm just trying to get better. I'm just working out with the team and trying to make them better as well."

Would you say that the summer schedule is easier or harder than the fall schedule?

"I think it's harder now because it's a lot more aggressive now because we're trying to get better. During the season, we're maintaining."

How have things changed under the new offensive coordinator, James Franklin?

"Things are going really well. I have a good relationship with him because he recruited me when I was in high school. He's made a good amount of changes. The running style is different. I like this style a lot better because we run a lot of off-tackle stuff. Since I'm an outside running back, it's more my style."
