Scarbrough Still "Pretty Solid"

Bo Scarbrough has been taking official visits this season while remaining committed to Alabama. The four-star running back most recently took an official to UCLA and then an unofficial to Alabama. Here's the latest on where the Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy athlete stands...

Bo Scarbrough has officially visited Ole Miss, Notre Dame, and UCLA. He visited the Bruins when they welcomed and beat Colorado and he said it was a good experience.

"I had a great time at UCLA. I like (head) coach (Jim) Mora and I like the things that he's doing at UCLA, I think that he's building something at UCLA. Their whole coaching staff, they're really good guys," Scarbrough said.

"He told me he wasn't going to make promises or sweet-talk me like other coaches (might), he was just being straight up with me. He said if I come to UCLA, I have to work for my spot, nothing's given."

Scarbrough said he liked the campus and the stadium atmosphere, but it didn't really compare with Alabama.

"It was pretty good, but you know, not like down South, the SEC, but it was pretty nice," he said.

The following weekend, Scarbrough took an unofficial visit back to Alabama to see the Tide welcome LSU.

"I had a good time at Alabama, it was pretty nice, the atmosphere was crazy," he said.

He was able to spend some time with a few other Tide targets, namely five star cornerback Marlon Humphrey. Scarbrough says Humphrey is a bit of a tough read when it comes to his recruitment.

"I don't know, Marlon confuses me. I don't know what he's doing. Maybe he's going to go to Alabama, or maybe Florida State. Either one of those two," he said.

The four-star running back still plans to take his final official visit at Alabama and isn't sure about where the other visit might be.

"I don't, know yet, it will be awhile before I go anywhere," he said.

"I would still say that my commitment to Alabama is still pretty solid, nothing has opened my eyes from what I've seen so far."
