B.J. Scott is heading to Chicago. While he was not selected in the NFL Draft last weekend, he has been asked to attend the Chicago Bears’ rookie minicamp on May 10-12.

Scott, a 5’11” 205-pound defensive back, ranked third on the team with 84 tackles, 49 of them solo, with six tackles for loss, one sack, two interceptions, three pass breakups, two quarterback hurries, one fumble recovery and two forced fumbles. He was also selected as an honorable mention selection to last season’s All-Sun Belt Conference team.

Prior to landing at South Alabama, Scott played for Vigor High School before signing with the University of Alabama. He spent three years in Tuscaloosa with one of them being a redshirt season. He was part of the team for the 2009 BCS National Championship and a record of 36-5.

After an ankle injury and being tried out at different positions, Scott transferred to South Alabama. He started the first seven games of the 2011 season before a knee injury sufferred against Georgia State forced him to miss the remaining games of the season. But he still finished fifth in tackles with 48 and a team-high four passes defended.

Prior to the injury, he set a single-game school record with 180 yards in kick returns against Georgia State, including a 71-yard return on the game’s opening play. The Jags would eventually lose the game in overtime unfortunately.

He was a late addition to the South team’s roster for the Senior Bowl in January.
