    Scott's older brother Tyler just signed with the Minnesota Vikings after a stellar career as a defensive lineman at Northwestern. Tanner, a strapping lad himself at 6-foot-2, 210 pounds (but about 50 pounds lighter than his brother), has emerged as one of the top arms in Texas' junior-college ranks after taking an odd route there. The Ohio native originally signed with Division II Notre Dame (Ohio), going 3-5, 5.55 last year before deciding to transfer to Howard (Texas) JC. Scott has shown premium fastball velocity from the left side, touching 97 mph and sitting in the mid-90s at times. The Texas Tech signee also throws a slider, but his delivery remains raw and his repertoire underdeveloped thanks to his lack of pitching experience. He struggled to throw strikes, with 45 walks and 76 strikeouts in 61 innings during the spring.
