A report on a 2007 football prospect is featured.

Fairfield, Ala.--Linebacker Stanley Scarborough is going to Tuscaloosa for a Combine on Saturday to showcase his talent in front of college coaches from across the country. He is receiving interest and talks favorites.

"I have been receiving interest from Auburn, UAB, Mississippi State and Louisville," Scarborough said. "My favorites are Mississippi State, Auburn and Florida."

Commenting on each school, he said:

Mississippi State: "I like their coaching staff. I like their system. It's a pretty nice campus, and the fans treat you good. I went for their Junior Day, and it was a lot of fun. They are my top school."

Auburn: "I went down there for their Junior Day and had a good time as well. Coach (Tommy) Tuberville is a very nice person. I got to meet him, and he talked to me. I also know a couple of players down there. It's nice campus, and the Tiger Walk was very cool."

Florida: "I like their system and how they play. I think I would like their coach but, I haven't met him yet."

Scarborough recorded 112 tackles, 12 sacks, six forced fumbles and three interceptions during his junior season. He was named All-Metro for his performance.

Scarborough did not hesitate when asked his strengths, "My size, my speed, quickness off the ball and my ability to tackle," he said.

He stands 5-10, 190-pounds, and college coaches are recruiting him because of his speed. He recorded a 4.42 in the 40-yard dash in Birmingham this past weekend.

When asked the factors of his college decision Scarborough replied, "Playing time and education."

He will join teammate Julian Mallory this weekend as the two will participate in the All-American Combine in Tuscaloosa.
