MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. For 10 days last November, University of Miami wide receiver Rashawn Scott seemed destined to miss this years annual spring game. In fact, it appeared Scott might have played his last game with the Hurricanes when he was suspended for the final three 2012 games after violating undisclosed team rules. I learned, Ive moved forward no grudges, no nothing, Scott said. I cant hold a grudge. My family told me to go back, get your degree and just play football. Dont think about anything else. What happened, happened. If Saturday afternoons spring game was an indication of what hell offer as a junior in the fall, the 6-foot-2, 204-pound Scott might not need a degree for a while. Scott caught 5 passes for 94 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Orange (First teamers) to a 35-20 victory against the White team before several thousand fans at Sun Life Stadium. Quarterback Stephen Morris completed 13 of 23 passes for 256 yards and four first-half touchdowns. He connected with Scott on scoring plays of 14 and 15 yards. Hes physical, man, hes very big and not afraid to go inside, Morris said of Scott. He loves going inside and blocking, No. 1. And No. 2, catching those deep dig routes, the slant routes. Other than that, hes fast. Hes smart. Really, the skys the limit for Rashawn. Its my job is to keep pushing him even when he has a bad day to keep pushing him to make sure he gets better and better. Scott, from Melbourne, Fla., sent in the first signed Letter of Intent to then-new coach Al Golden in February 2011. He played in six games as a true freshman before suffering a season-ending injury. As a sophomore last season, Scott finished as UM's second-leading receiver (35 catches, 512 yards, three touchdowns) despite playing in just nine games. A good spring for him, a good finish, Golden said after the spring game. Were expecting big things from Rashawn. Scott and Morris werent the only Hurricanes stars on Saturday, when players took the field by running through the huge Miami helmet and famed smoke as during the season. Duke Johnson, a freshman standout last season, ran for 120 yards on 10 carries. His elusiveness extended several nifty runs. Linebacker Denzel Perryman had two interceptions, though the defense overall took a backseat to the offense. There was a light White moment, when former Hurricanes quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Gino Torretta threw a 45-yard scoring pass to former Miami star and current Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson. There also was a touching err, make that non-touching moment when receiver Malcolm Lewis was allowed to catch Morris short pass and run 75 yards for a score. The Miramar product was playing for the first time since dislocating his ankle as a true freshman at Georgia Tech on Sept. 22. He deserves it, Golden said of Lewis. A horrific injury back in the fall. The fortitude, the perseverance, the work ethic to come back from that and the courage to go out there and do that. Now we dont have to worry about when hes ready for FAU, thats already passed. Hes caught that ball and done that. Now were moving forward. Hell be full speed by June.
