Recruiting: Bo Scarbrough Committed to Alabama

Alabama Crimson Tide fans might not be fully focused on Western Kentucky on Saturday, but it won’t be because of not giving them the respect they deserve.  Rather attention has turned to recruiting, as Bo Scarbrough committed to Alabama late Friday night.

Scarbrough, a local standout from Northridge High School (5 miles from the University of Alabama campus) is just a junior, but already considered to be one of the top players in the 2014 signing class. After originally planning to pledge his verbal commitment during the summer, Scarbrough pumped the breaks and delayed his announcement.

The sentiment Scarbrough would wait to commit is why it came as a surprise to many when the Tuscaloosa News and Tidesports.com reported his verbal commitment late Friday evening.

At just 16 years old, he already looks the part of an SEC running back.  He towers at 6-foot-2 inches while tipping the scales at a chiseled 215lbs while reporting a 40 yard dash time between 4.3 and 4.5 seconds.  Although Scarbrough looks the part, it is scary to think that he still has two years to grow before taking his first collegiate snap.

To give you an idea of the type of player Scarbrough is, an opposing coach said this week  he hadn’t coached against a running back as talented since he coached against Matt Forte.  Yes, the same Matt Forte of the Chicago Bears. That’s some pretty high praise.

Although talented, there are still questions concerning Scarbrough, most notably his durability.  Scarbrough was nicked up during his freshman and sophomore season’s including an ACL tear last season. Already considered to be a top 10 player in the 2014 recruiting class, if Scarbrough can put together a healthy junior season hey may climb to the top of that list.

Although he is still two years away from being able to put pen to paper to sign a letter of intent, a talent like Scarbrough is well worth the wait.
