Scarborough Takes in UGA Visit

ATHENS – It was a tough weekend for the running back position at Georgia, but one elite 2014 prospect saw many things he liked during his time spent on campus.

Tuscaloosa, Ala., native Bo Scarborough travelled to Athens Friday with elite 2013 linebacker Reuben Foster.

Timing for the visit wasn't the best, given that Isaiah Crowell was arrested and dismissed from the team on the same day.

That didn't stop coach Mark Richt from hosting his two guests, and using Crowell's misfortune to show Scarborough what's at stake.

"I really don't know how coach Richt felt about the situation," Scarborough said. "It looked like it bothered him. He told me people make mistakes in life, don't make bad decisions and to think before you do stuff. He said to make sure I was taking care of myself."

Scarborough's candid conversations with Richt were his favorite moments of the weekend.

"I mean, the part I like about coach Richt is he isn't just about football," Scarborough said. "He cares about my life a lot. He doesn't just care about me playing running back. He wants me to do well, get an education and be a better man."

Living in Tuscaloosa, Scarborough has seen plenty of Crimson Tide football in his lifetime. He compared the two schools – Georgia and Alabama.

"From what I've seen so far Georgia is better than Alabama," he said. "They've got it going on at Georgia. It's just fun. They don't talk about football all the time. They want to know what's going on in your social life, your academics. Georgia has to care for you."

Scarborough's recruitment is now on a national level. Next up, he plans to visit either Florida or Michigan. While he'd like to commit, "sooner than later," he knows he's got a long time to make his ultimate decision.

The trip to Georgia has the Bulldogs in as a good a position at this time as any other school on his list.

"This visit went very nice," he said. "They've got everything. They've got a whole bunch of stuff that I like."
