Think he was referencing Takeo...
incredible closing speed and hitting ability. This is a great pick up.
I have yet to see film more impressive on a LB than I have with 'Ro.
But Foster is the closest thing since then, that's for sure. I expect this kid to play early and very often.
Tray Blackmon was a beast. I had the chance to see him live in high school. But i also have seen Foster live several times. The difference in how hard they hit is a lot more than you think. Foster had at least 1 guy carted off the field every game i attended. Blackmon didnt hit nearly as hard as Foster at the high school level.
He showed flashes at the Ga Junior Bowl but nothing that was like wow besides the fact that he is the first person down on special teams every time.
Not bad for a junior in HS.
How about these stats: 185 total tackles, 144 solos, 34 tackles for loss, and 18 sacks. None other than 2013 LB Reuben Foster. #Bama commit

Imagine CPB narrating those highlights: 'that's a goodie, that one,too, goodie, goodie, goodie, there's another, and another . . .'
What a terrific young player!
