Texas safety Christian Scott’s status for the upcoming season has been up in the air since he was arrested in early August on an assault charge related to the repossession of his car. Monday Scott pled no contest to the misdemeanor charges and received deferred adjudication, probation, and community service for his crime. As is standard operating procedure, Texas coach Mack Brown waited for the legal matter to be settled before handing down the team punishment of a 3 game suspension on Tuesday night.

From Mack Brown: “We’re disappointed any time one of our players makes a poor decision, and Christian understands he made a mistake. He has taken responsibility, is accepting the consequences of his actions and has returned to the team.” (via)

Scott was a starting safety last season but had been passed on the depth chart this fall by Kenny Vaccaro. When he returns to the team he will provide valuable veteran depth to the a very young secondary.
