"Alabama leads."

Bo Scarborough, running back from Tuscaloosa-Northridge, Ala., projects as the No. 1 prospect in Alabama in next year's class. He talks candidly about his trip to A-Day in Tuscaloosa.


"I had another good visit over there," said Bo Scarborough. "I think Bama is going to have a great team, but not as good as last year's team. They have great skill people, but I don't think they are ready. Just give them two more years to rebuild, and then that's another championship team. Maybe I'll be a part of that championship team."

Scarborough has spent plenty of time at the school in his backyard and familiar with their program.

"They have great coaches," he said. "The players, as hard as they work from what I have seen with my own two eyes, that team is a family. They are going to pull some big games off this year."

One player who caught the attention of Scarborough was the true freshman running back who was awarded the MVP for his A-Day performance.

"T.J. Yeldon is really good," he said. "He is going to be a good running back. I think having both of us in the backfield would be pretty good. It could maybe be another Trent and Mark Ingram."

The 2011 BCS National Champions is the favorite at this point for the 6-foot-2, 215-pounder.

"Alabama leads, and they have a pretty good lead on everyone else," Scarborough said. "They are the only school who seems to really want me. I love the atmosphere and the fans. The team cares about each other. They are just well put together."

Scarborough tore his ACL last season, and feels he is almost 100-percent. He was recently clocked a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash at a combine.
