5-star linebacker Reuben Foster commits to Alabama

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Five-star linebacker prospect Reuben Foster says he'll play for Alabama.

The Auburn (Ala.) High School star said Monday night on Fox SportsSouth that he plans to sign with the Crimson Tide over Auburn and Georgia.

Foster is rated the nation's No. 2 prospect by Scout.com and a five-star player by each of the major recruiting services. He said he made his decision "on my way up here."

Foster says he has been an Alabama fan "since I was a pup."

He had switched his initial commitment from Alabama to rival Auburn, then withdrew his pledge to the Tigers after the firing of coach Gene Chizik. He even got an Auburn tattoo etched onto his right forearm.

Foster moved to Auburn from Troup County High School in Georgia for his senior year.
