Why 5-Star Reuben Foster Is a Can't-Miss Recruit

Full RideB/R VideoDecember 16, 2016

Top-ranked linebacker Reuben Foster has one of the greatest defensive highlight tapes anyone has ever seen.  His recent move to Auburn High School has Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide concerned about Foster’s verbal pledge.

Foster put up staggering stats as a junior, making 185 tackles, 34 for a loss and recording 18 sacks while at Troup County High School in Lagrange, Georgia.

Full Ride has Bleacher Report’s Barrett Sallee and Michael Felder combine with 247 Sports’ J.C. Shurburtt and Barton Simmons to break down Foster’s amazing talents, as well as predict where the 5-star linebacker will end up. 

The 6’1” 246-pound inside linebacker has said he plans to take visits to Auburn, Georgia, Florida and Florida State, but everyone expects that the battle for Foster will come down to rivals Auburn and Alabama.

Will Foster be saying “Roll Tide” or “War Eagle?”  Watch to find out.
