Scarborough talks injury and Tide visit
"They say things happen for a reason," said Bo Scarborough. "I tore my ACL in the first quarter against Hillcrest Friday night. I will have surgery at 8:30 a.m. tomorrow morning.
"I was getting ready to cut back across the field. I tried to cut back too quick. My cleat got stuck in the ground, and I got hit up high. My leg hyperextended, and that's when I tore the ACL."
The University of Alabama has already offered the elite sophomore.
"I went to the Alabama game on Saturday," Scarborough said. "They were telling me I will come back stronger. They told me I will put on a little weight. They wished me good luck with my surgery.
"The coaches told me not to worry about anything. They told me they still want me and still interested in me. It made me feel good."
Scarborough discussed the Tide's game against the Volunteers.
"It was a good game," he said. "They were going head-to-head until halftime. I guess Dont'a [Hightower] and Dre [Kirkpatrick] got after the defense. Trent [Richardson] and Eddie [Lacy] stepped it up on offense. I liked [Darius] Hank's big catch across the middle. They came back and worked hard as a team."
Scarborough will return as a top prospect for the Alabama/LSU game.
"It's No. 1 against No. 2," he said. "They have the same things going on at LSU. Alabama and LSU have good receivers and good running backs. They both have good defenses. The game is going to be very close. Not many points will be scored."
