Throw Out Bearing

i have a 2002 ford ranger and i have a sweaking noise that happens from 40-45 mph 99% of time. But sometimes it happens at other mph's. My friends dad think it may be the throw out bearing. Does anyone had this problem or would know probably what it is? thanks.

Throwout bearing you can hear at idle, when your foot is off the clutch. You can't hear it while driving down the road.

Is it just a squeaking noise or does anything else happen like vibrations?

Does the sound increase with speed? It could be a U-Joint. I had that happen recently, and replaced both with greasable units. It's just a thought.
