Alabama's Bo Scarbrough declares for NFL Draft


In a move reminiscent of his opposing running backs in the National Championship Game, Alabama running back Damien Harris will bypass the NFL draft and return to school for his senior season.

Ridley, who is rated as the top draft-eligible receiver by ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., announced Wednesday on Twitter that he will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft.

Ridley finishes his Crimson Tide career among the all-time receiving leaders in program history, including ranking second in career touchdown receptions with 19 touchdowns following his game-tying score in Monday's championship game, breaking a tie with Muscle Shoals' own Dennis Homan.

Scarbrough has dealt with a number of injuries during his career, which has seen him rush for 1,512 yards in three seasons.

Ridley caught a pass in each of the 44 games he played at Alabama, a streak that ranked No. 3 in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Alabama players talk about winning a fifth national title in nine years under Nick Saban.

Harris ran for 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns this year as the lead rusher for the Crimson Tide.

As expected, Calvin Ridley is NFL-bound. ranks is the No. 1 ranked wide receiver in the 2018 draft class.
