Scarborough talks targets

Bo Scarborough wasn't one of the big-time official visitors in Tuscaloosa this weekend, but the local was able to take and unofficial to campus to take a stab at selling the program to players on class ahead of him.

"The weekend was pretty good," said Bo Scarborough after spending some time on the Alabama campus. "The (championship) parade was something nice, so many people were there."

The 2014 running back out of nearby Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Northridge was there to take in the weekend events, but he had a recruiting goal in mind.

"They were looking like they were pretty interested," Scarborough said of his time with top targets including Reuben Foster, Alvin Kamara and others.

"Reuben loved the trip, and I would love for him to come play at Alabama with me," he said. "He's one of my best friends, but it would really surprise me.

"We kind of talked about it the whole time he was here."

While hopeful, Scarborugh wasn't ready to declare Foster a 'Bama lean by any stretch despite all the drama surrounding the five-star linebacker's recruitment.

"There's kind of a chance, then again there's not," he admitted with Foster's prospects at Alabama. "That's why I said it would surprise me."

Things were more positive, according to Scarborough, with the Tide's top running back target remaining on the board.

"Alvin Kamara seems like he really liked it, but I don't know how much he likes Georgia," he added of Kamara's two finalists.

While recruiting others seems to have been the primary goal, the junior's own commitment to Alabama remains on track.

"It's pretty solid," he maintains.

Scarborough will attend junior days at Mississippi State on February 2 and at Tennessee on February 15 in addition to attending Alabama's on January 26.
