Bo Scarborough visits Alabama

Bo Scarborough, running back from Tuscaloosa-Northridge, Ala., has been receiving a lot of hype as of late and backed it up with close to 200 yards rushing last Friday night against Tuscaloosa County. Scarborough is attracting a lot of college attention and has landed several scholarship offers. He visited an SEC school this past weekend.

"The visit to Alabama Saturday went pretty good," said Bo Scarborough. "I talked with Nick Saban, coach Mac [Jim McElwain] and a few other coaches. Overall it was pretty good.

"Nick Saban told me he has been hearing great things about me. He said he doesn't know which position I will play yet. He said when he has seen me in camp I rotate between wide receiver and running back. He told me I have a spot at Alabama."

The class of 2014 prospect talked more about his thoughts on the unofficial visit to Tuscaloosa.

"I get a whole new feel for Alabama when I go there," he said. "I get along with the players. I know a couple of them like Vinnie Sunseri. We hang out, and he shows me around the campus. I want to go back over there every day, but I can't."

Mississippi State extended a verbal offer to Scarborough this summer. Alabama says he has a spot with the Tide. He received more good news Monday.

"My coach showed me a text from Troy," said Scarborough. "They were saying I have an offer from them. My coach also told me Oregon State and Utah have called about me."

Northridge is 2-0 after defeating Tuscaloosa County this past week.

"It felt great to beat them," said Scarborough. "They talked in the newspaper and said I was soft. I ended up with 18 carries for 195 yards and two touchdowns.

"Our coach said for the next 48 minutes to hit them in the mouth and be ready to play. We pulled through. Our offense got our defense hyped, and our defense got our offense hyped. We worked together."

Northridge travels to Minor Friday night.
