Injuries hindered wide receiver, Rashawn Scott, throughout his Miami football career. Scott and defensive tackle R.J. McIntosh did not become impact players with the Hurricanes until their sophomore seasons. Scott played at Miami from 2011-15. Their careers overlapped by one season.

McIntosh was part of the Miami football program from 2015-17. Scott played six games as a true freshman in 2015 recording one reception for two yards before an injury ended his season. With 35 receptions for 512 yards and three TDs in 2012, Scott had a breakout sophomore season. Those numbers could have been higher.

Scott missed the final three games of the 2012 season with an injury. As a junior in 2012 Scott had only three receptions for 38 yards. With a season-ending injury in 2013 during his senior season, Scott took a redshirt. As a redshirt senior in 2015, Scott had his best season for Miami with 52 receptions for 695 yards and five TDs.

Scott went undrafted in 2016 but spent that fall and 2017 on the Miami Dolphins roster. In three games with the Dolphins over the two seasons, Scott continued to battle injuries and did not record a reception. After being released by the Dolphins at the beginning of the 2018 season, Scott has not been on an NFL roster.

McIntosh became a force for the Miami football team at DT as a sophomore in 2016 during the first season with Manny Diaz as the defensive coordinator. McIntosh finished with 47 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss. 2.5 sacks and two pass breakups. McIntosh increased those numbers as a junior in 2017.

As part of a dominant Miami defense during the Hurricanes ACC Coastal Division Championship season, McIntosh recorded 52 tackles, 12.5 TFLs, 2.5 sacks and seven pass breakups. McIntosh teamed with Kendrick Norton to give Miami a formidable tandem on the interior of the Hurricanes defense.
