Scarbrough, the Crimson Tide’s third-leading rusher behind Damien Harris and quarterback Jalen Hurts, went for 180 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries (9.7 ypc) against Washington during the Crimson Tide’s 24-7 College Football semifinal victory last weekend.
That gave him 361 yards and four touchdowns over his last three games after rushing for 358 and five scores through nine previous appearance for the 2016 season.
Though he won’t be heading to the NFL this year, one could imagine that he’ll be an exciting draft prospect in 2018.
