South Carolina is not the only SEC school waiting to learn if some new signees will even be eligible for the start of the 2014 college football season. There is still some question as to what the status for a pair of Alabama Class of 2014 signees will be at the start of the season.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban said Thursday at SEC Media Days the staff is waiting to see where potential running back Bo Scarbrough and offensive lineman Montel McBride will fall academically at the end of the summer. The two are not currently on campus according to Al.com. Considering most of the Class of 2014 has been on campus since May, that is certainly a cause for some alarm.
“They won’t be completed until the end of summer school,” Saban said. “I can’t really make a prediction on what their status will be until their summer school is over.”
Of course, Alabama should have plenty of talent on the roster to overcome any absences by either player if it comes to that.
