Reuben Foster Chooses Alabama

Linebacker Reuben Foster from Auburn (Ala.) High School has committed to sign with Alabama on Wednesday.

Foster, who also considered Auburn and Georgia, made his announcement on FOX Sports South. Foster said he decided on his way to the FOX studio.

“I’ve been loving Alabama since I was a pup,” Foster said. “I was raised as an Alabama fan from my mom and my dad.”

Foster originally committed to Alabama before he switched his commitment to Auburn. Foster then reopened his recruitment in December following the firing of head coach Gene Chizik and his staff, including former wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor.

Foster, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker by Rivals.com, is Alabama’s 23rd commitment for the class of 2013.

Of course, Foster’s announcement is only a commitment. He will surely hear from the other coaching staffs between now and Wednesday when he signs his national letter of intent.

Collins, Foster Prepare For Announcement

There’s plenty of anticipation for the announcement of linebacker Reuben Foster from Auburn (Ala.) High School.

Foster will announce his choice sometime after 10:00 eastern time on FOX Sports South. He’s considering Alabama, Auburn and Georgia.

Foster has previously been committed to Alabama and Auburn before opening his recruitment in December when Auburn coach Gene Chizik was fired.

Foster had been considered a favorite by some analysts, including TideSports.com‘s Andrew Bone, to pick Auburn. But Bone wrote Monday that his opinion has pick has changed to Alabama following this past weekend.

“I have been told the coaching staffs of both schools have not been informed of Foster’s decision at this point. I believe Alabama is more confident right now.”

Of course, what Foster thinks now doesn’t guarantee what he will do on Wednesday. He could commit to one school tonight and sign with another on Wednesday.

Also announcing during the show will be tonight will be highly-touted running back Alex Collins from South Plantation High School in Plantation, Fla. He’s considering Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, Miami and Wisconsin.

Foster’s Recruiting ‘Getting Kind Of Crazy’

Reuben Foster‘s recruitment has turned into what many analysts have predicted all along.

“It’s been getting kind of crazy,” Foster told GigEm247.com. “I knew it was coming.”

That certainly became the case when Foster decommitted from Auburn on Friday. The linebacker from Auburn (Ala.) High School has now been committed to both the Tigers and rival Alabama.

Auburn isn’t out of the running, however. Foster recently visited with newly-hired head coach Gus Malzahn.

“I went by there. It went great,” Foster told AuburnUndercover.com. “I’m going to give him a chance.

“It’s the first time I met him. It was a good impression. He’s a nice man, a clean-cut guy.”

Foster has heard from several schools since he decommitted from Auburn. Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Texas A&M, Georgia Tech, Miami and Washington have all called.

Texas A&M is sure to receive a visit, according to Foster.

“I don’t know when,” he said. “I’m going to take a visit there. It might not be an official.”

Which school will Foster choose? That’s yet to be determined. But his family will play a role, according to Foster.

“I’m a mama’s boy so my mom is going to help me,” he said. “(She told me to) keep God in your head, keep God in your prayers and stay focused in school.”
