    Tray was smaller but he was fast, aggressive and physical and he was a 5-star and #1 player in GA so I would say that is a good comparison.

    Reuben was born in Alabama and has been an Alabama fan most of his life. I don't see him changing his committment.

    It seems Saban likes stud 5-star players committing very early in their recruitment. Trent committed very early on (I know he had a press confernce on NSD and re-affirmed), Eddie Williams/Ragland in the 2012 class and Reuben for 2013. It looks somewhat like a Saban formula but I may be stretching it.

    Thanks for the link. That's about as firm as it can get at this stage. Keep recruiting for us Reuben and bring another #1 class to Bama.

    Thanks Lizard. A different slant on RF's recruitment to say the very least!

    "Coach (Smart) wouldn't let me use the phrase 'Dream Team' because Georgia uses it but we're trying to create a championship team," Foster said. "It's a tradition at Alabama now, because they always win championships and we're trying to be a future championship team."
    Love it.

    Lowe is a really good comparison as well..

    I don't think it's a bad comparison at all..Besides being smaller..When you watch videos of both..They play like clones of each other..They have similar speed getting to the ball..Neither messes around getting to the ball..They both get to the ball faster than any LB'ers I've seen on the high school level..And I haven't seen any LB'ers that are more brutal than either one once they get to the ball..

    You have me when it comes to Blackmon being the overall #1 recruit..And as TiderJ pointed out..Blackmon was a 5*, #1 rated LB'er in the country(he was in the Top 20 overall), by all recruiting services coming out of high school..Their size is the only comparison of the two that is not comparible..How hard Blackmon hit & how strong he was..That size difference is a wash..

    Here.

    Every article on a georgia kid the AJC does will say that while they are commited to one school they really want to go to UGA or are starting to lean to UGA or have dreams at night of playing for UGA. Its usually just done to run up views on the article since the squidbillies hate to think that georgia kids dont want to go to georgia.

    the hitting is similar but thats it. Foster is in a class by himself. The guy has the entire package.

    its simple really. Foster born in Alabama wants to be the next great Alabama born LB at the Capstone. following the footsteps of Jordan, Bennett, McCants, Ryan, McClain etc. of course having Thomas and Lowe in that tradition doesn't hurt either!!
