"I very much look forward to serving on the Playing Rules Oversight Panel," said Scott. "Any time you are selected for service on a national body, it's an honor and further, I see it a testament to the outstanding work that we have been doing at Morgan State University."

The full breakdown consists of three Division I CCA selections, three Division I appointments from the Championships/Competition Cabinet, three members from Division II and three members from Division III.

The Playing Rules Oversight Panel (PROP) was formed as an association-wide committee (representatives from all three divisions) in 2003 to review playing-rules proposals, especially those involving player safety, financial impact or image of the game and to review playing-rules issues, including implementation of playing rules proposed by playing rules committees.

As a member of the committee Scott will be responsible for:

• Oversight of Playing Rules Committees, which includes approving rules changes made by each of the 15 committees annually.
• Oversight of rules modifications for the sports for which the NCAA does not write playing rules.
• Provide direction to the NCAA staff on playing rules issues.
• Provide occasional counsel to Playing Rules Committees when dealing with difficult rules issues.

Scott is no stranger to national leadership positions on the Division I collegiate level. Throughout his administrative career, Scott has been named to several influential groups, which include the FCS ADA Executive Committee, NCAA Division I Baseball Committee, Vice President of the Minority Opportunities Athletic Association (MOAA) and a member of the Black AD Alliance (Executive Committee).
