Scarbrough sets announcement date

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Bo Scarbrough, a top running back in the 2014 class, is set to make his college decision. The product of Northridge High School in Tuscaloosa, Ala., will commit on July 23 at 9:45 a.m. on his high school campus, according to his coach Mike Smith.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound tailback has offers from the University of Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Florida, Michigan, Mississippi State, Troy and UCLA. He most recently visited Georgia with Crimson Tide commitment Reuben Foster (Auburn, Ala./Auburn).

"[Recruiting] has become hard on him," Smith told TideNation earlier this summer. "The phones don’t quit ringing. The bull crap don’t stop coming. All of them have the same things they want to say. Basically, that’s all they can say. ‘We want you here. You’re a good player.’ All that kind of stuff.

I told him we’re going to sit down this summer and the guys you know you don’t want to see, we’re going to be honest with them and tell them that."
