    re: *** 2013 LB Reuben Foster Commits to Bama ***

    Reports: Reuben Foster commits to Alabama | al.com
    The 2013 prospect from Lagrange (Ga.) Troupe County is considered one of the nation's elite high school linebackers. The 6-foot-1, 228-pounder had various offers and also considered Florida and Georgia.

    He was the second player to commit Monday joining O.J. Howard. Foster is the third verbal commitment toward the 2013 signing class.

    "I chose Alabama because of the tradition they have and it is like family there," Foster told Scout.com. "They have a lot of national championships and that is what I want to play for. I also like how they put a lot of linebackers in the NFL because that is where I want to play."

    this is the guy i wanted more than any for the 2013 recruits. i know he's not as big as he's gonna be at Bama right now but he reminds me of a young Ray Lewis. When he hits, the offensive player goes backwards. and he looks like he gets around blocks like Ray

    I'm confused.

    Is he #20 or #22?

    The highlights must be for two different players.

    I noticed that as well, but I didn't know if he changed numbers during the season or something.

    It's for one player (the one severely hurting people). It states at the start of the video "#: 20/22". Not sure why his number is different though.

    Ga expert breaks down Reuben Foster
    What are your thoughts now that you’ve seen him develop over time?

    I think the biggest thing when you watch Foster is how fast he plays. Guards can’t get to him and he’ll beat them to the backfield. He’s very instinctive and scrapes down the line very well. Everything you see in Reuben is what you want to see from a linebacker. If I could change one thing on Reuben, I wouldn’t change anything at all- he’s one of the most complete football players that I’ve seen since I’ve been in this business.

    Great news! But at 6'-0" and 206lbs, will he fill out big enough to play linebacker?

    that's great. I still remember some of us talked about him when we watched (video) him hitting IC pretty darn hard. Thought @ that moment everyone was ready to trade IC for him.

    LB Rueben Foster commits to Alabama over UGA | AJC College Sports Recruiting
    The 2013 linebacker out of LaGrange’s Troup High School committed to Alabama over UGA on Monday. Foster attended Georgia’s “Dawg Night” football prospect camp on Friday.

    The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder is considered one of the nation’s top juniors at the linebacker position. Alabama also appears to be the frontrunner for another elite Georgia prospect, Grayson High School defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, who is a candidate to be the USA’s No. 1 college football prospect for 2013.

    Seriously, though, my guess would be yes. With the kind of athlete and hitter he is, trying him at Sam or anywhere else besides ILB just seems like a waste.
