Tuscaloosa natives are going to stand together.

On Wednesday, Bo Scarbrough demonstrated it via In My Own Words with yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine.

He named Brian Robinson as the first player he’s excited to see in the fall. Robinson, an alumnus of Hillcrest High School, is taking advantage of the COVID-19 year and is back for a fifth season.

His numbers have improved each season as he set career highs for rushing yards (483) and touchdowns (six). The 6-foot-1, 226-pounder has returned to improve his draft stock. People are looking forward to watching Jase McClellan, Roydell Williams, Trey Sanders, and Camar Wheaton, but Scarbrough reminds everyone not to overlook Robinson.

He said the former four-star may be the best running back for the 2022 NFL Draft.

“This guy puts in so much work,” Scarbrough said of Robinson. “He works so hard. I know he’s been there for three to four years, but he works so hard. So many people wanted him to transfer, but he stuck to what he wanted to do. I’ve seen him work from day one and I’m ready to see him put on a show. I am ready for them [Alabama] to give him a chance to run the ball. I know what he can do. If he does what Coach Saban wants him to do, mark my words, he will be the No. 1 back in next year’s draft class.”

Scarbrough guarantees this for Robinson. Big words coming from one T-Town man to another.

This season is going to be fun indeed. We shall see if Robinson proves Scarbrough right.
