Scarbrough to Visit UCLA

Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy running back Bo Scarbrough committed to Alabama but is still taking his visits...

Bo Scarbrough took his second official visit to Notre Dame when the Irish welcomed USC, and he enjoyed his time in Indiana.

"I liked it, I liked the campus, it's a beautiful campus. The coaches, they showed me the whole campus, took me to the academic advisor. I really liked the academic advisory guy, he really broke down for me what classes I would be taking if I came to Notre Dame," Scarbrough said.

"The game had a pretty nice crowd, but nothing like Alabama. They have a decent stadium, but you can't base everything off the stadium."

The Alabama pledge also spent some time with his main recruiter for the Irish – running backs coach Tony Alford.

"Coach Tony Alford, he told me that he needs me to play for Notre Dame and he has a plan for me and my future. He's not talking about football, he doesn't talk football ever when we talk, he's talking about what I'm going to do in the future and how I'm going to accomplish those goals," he said.

Irish freshman quarterback Malik Zaire hosted Scarbrough on the visit. Scarbrough was able to get an even better feel for the Notre Dame program from his conversations with Zaire.

"Malik, he's a cool guy, he's real funny. He told me about why he came to Notre Dame. He said the reason why he went to Notre Dame is he was thinking about his future in the end, having a degree from Notre Dame holds a lot of weight. I think he was being up front with me, that's why I think he's pretty cool," Scarbrough said.

"I think about Notre Dame every now and then because I think about my future and maybe having a degree from Notre Dame."

The Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy athlete said he had plenty of questions for the Notre Dame coaches and staff and they answered everything to his satisfaction. Next, he'll officially visit UCLA this weekend, when the Bruins welcome Colorado.

"I'm looking forward to seeing what they have planned for me and my future. I asked Notre Dame a lot of questions, so I'm going to ask UCLA the same questions that I asked them. I really don't care about the campus at all, I just want to feel comfortable," he said.

"I want to go there and see if I feel comfortable and see what the coaches have for me."
