Minutes ago at a press conference in the Auburn High School media room, Reuben Foster—a 5-star recruit who some analysts have labeled the “best LB recruit in 15 years”—let the nation know that his yearlong pledge to Alabama was no longer intact. He now plans to attend arch-rival, Auburn University.
