High School

Scott signed during the fall 2011 early signing period. The ESPN HoopGurlz website ranked Scott at No. 38 nationally for wing players. HoopGurlz also ranked New Mexico State's 2012 commitments of Scott, Sasha Weber and Shay Young among the top-20 mid-major recruiting classes in the nation. The site stated the three perimeter players should provide plenty of scoring and ball-handling skills for the Aggies.

Aggie assistant coach Aarika Hughes was key in recruiting Scott to Las Cruces. Hughes coached Scott on the senior's AAU team, Team Concept in Oregon. Hughes also played for the AAU squad during her high school days.

A four-year starter at Madras, Scott was nominated as a 2012 McDonald's All-American after her senior campaign.

In her final season she led the White Buffaloes to the Oregon 4A State Semifinals for the second straight season and a Tri-Valley Conference championship after compiling a 25-3 record. As a result, Scott earned Class 4A All-State first team honors and was named to the 2012 Oregon State Championship Tournament first team. She also claimed Tri-Valley Conference first team honors and was named the league's Player of the Year in 2012.

 As a junior at Madras she averaged 12.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.6 steals per game.
