Third-year sophomore RB Bo Scarbrough made it clear Saturday during media day that he will be back for the Crimson Tide next season.
Bo Scarbrough is the third-leading rusher for the Crimson Tide, behind RB Damien Harris and QB Jalen Hurts, but you wouldn’t have known that watching his Peach Bowl performance last Saturday. He torched the Washington Huskies for 180 yards and two touchdowns, averaging an absurd 9.7 yards per carry.
The talent is clearly there, and it had people wondering: Would the third-year sophomore leave for the 2017 NFL Draft?
He answered, without any ambiguity whatsoever:
Bo Scarbrough says he will definitely return to Alabama in 2017. Passing on draft. Asked easy or hard decision: "Why would it be hard?"

It’s phenomenal news for Alabama fans everywhere. With Damien Harris, Bo Scarbrough and new recruit Najee Harris, the No. 1 player in the nation according to 247Sports, Alabama’s running game will be absolutely stacked next year—if it wasn’t already.
