Crimson Tide's Ridley declares for NFL Draft

Alabama RB Bo Scarbrough leaving school early, headed to NFL, source says

Wide receiver Calvin Ridley, defensive lineman Da'Ron Payne and running back Bo Scarbrough - all juniors - will not return for their final seasons at the school, Alabama.com reported, citing sources.

"I think it was a pretty clear decision with my family and my coaches", he said.

In three years with the Crimson Tide, Ridley caught 224 passes for 2,781 yards and 19 touchdowns, including 63 catches for 967 yards and five touchdowns this season. "Coach Saban and his entire staff of caring experts and professionals have created a culture of winning and forged an unprecedented legacy for this program". I love the University of Alabama, made a lot of great friends, a lot of great relationships here inside the team and outside the team.


Scarbrough appeared poised for a breakout year after finishing his sophomore season with big games, including a 180-yard performance against Washington in the playoff semifinals.

As per usual, Alabama has multiple players who could enter the National Football League draft as juniors and be selected. Kiper ranks Harris as the No. 5 draft-eligible running back.

Just the third-ever victor of both the Jim Thorpe and Bednarik Awards in the same season-joining Charles Woodson and Patrick Peterson-Fitzpatrick is expected to be off the board in the first 10 picks of April's NFL Draft.


Multiple Alabama players including Minkah Fitzpatrick have yet to announce their draft intentions.

"As a result of a number of concussions, it is with a heavy heart that I announce that my journey in the path of football has come to an end", Roundtree posted on social media.
