SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 Sports) - Kenneth Scott was supposed to have a big year in 2013. But after going down with a season-ending ankle injury in the first quarter of the first game against Utah State, Scott faded into obscurity.

Well, Scott is back and says Pac-12 secondaries better beware.

"Ya, it feels real good to be back," who had 32 catches for 360 yards and three touchdowns as a sophomore in in 2012. "People seemed to have forget about my skills, though. They don't know what I do. Sometimes, I take it personal, but it's all good. I'm going to remind them."

"He's 100 percent," said head coach Kyle Whittingham. "He's moving exceptionally well. Him and Dres give us two very good weapons on the outside."

Having Scott back will take some of the pressure off Dres Anderson, who saw a ton of double team coverages a year ago and still managed to haul in 53 receptions for 1,002 yards and seven touchdowns. Scott and newcomer Kaelin Clay will give quarterback Travis Wilson more weapons to utlize.

As far as Scott picking up new offensive coordinator Dave Christensen's system, Scott said that has not been a problem.

"No, I'm an honor roll student," he said. "I know how to study, so I'm good. Homework is already done."

At 6-foot-3, Scott has tremendous size. And having dropped about 10 pounds, he says he's faster than ever.

"Mostly, I lost weight," Scott said. "I was pushing 220, now they want me to get down to 210. These legs are moving, I ain't gonna lie."

"K-Scott looking good, isn't he?" said Anderson. "He's looking great. I'm happy to see him out here healthy, looking fast as well. So, don't sleep on his speed.

But when asked if Scott had surpassed Anderson's speed, Dres said, "Come on now."
