About a month ago, Clemson offered one of the top prospects in Alabama's 2014 class, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound running back from Tuscaloosa.

Alabama, UCLA, Mississippi State and Troy have also offered Northridge High School sophomore Bo Scarborough.

"It was a big surprise getting one from Clemson, after the great season that they had this year," Scarborough told CUTigers in a recent interview.

He could potentially play wide receiver or running back at the next level. At Saturday's Nike Football Training Camp in Buford, Ga., Scarborough worked out with the wide receivers.

"It really doesn't matter. I'd work at whatever spot they put me at. Whatever spot they put me at, I'll play it," he said. "If I'm not good, I can work and get better at it."

The hometown Crimson Tide have offered him as a running back.

Scarborough visited the Alabama campus twice this spring, once for a junior day and again for the spring game.

This summer, he'll camp at Alabama, LSU, Auburn and Mississippi State.

A trip to Clemson could be in the works, but nothing has been scheduled.

"Clemson might be one of my schools that I pick," he said. "They had a very good season this year."

Five schools currently stand out.

"Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Clemson and UCLA," Scarborough said, "Even though I don't have the offer from Georgia and Florida yet."

A decision will be announced sometime during his senior season.

As a sophomore, Scarborough rushed for 938 yards, had 280 yards receiving and scored 13 total touchdowns. Top Stories
