What are they feeding these kids down in Alabama…
Last season, many fans were astonished by just how large Crimson Tide running back Derrick Henry was when he took a picture next to former Alabama back Mark Ingram during the National Championship game. Mama’s running back this season? Even bigger.
Sophomore Bo Scarbough, who saw limited action last season, is now starting at running back for Bama, and it looks like he moved over from linebacker. Scarbough is listed at 6-foot-2, 228 pounds, which seems moderate.

Look at him standing next to defensive lineman D.J. Pittway, whom reference, weighs 284 pounds.

Scarbrough told the Tuscaloosa News that he was working out twice a day to improve his strength and speed and to help prevent injuries, which was part of the reason he didn’t see much time last season.
