Five-star wide receiver Robert Foster has committed to Alabama.
This is yet another huge recruiting win for Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide, as Foster projects to be a star receiver at the college football level.
Andrew Bone of TideSports.com tweets the news of Foster's decision:
Robert Foster, Rivals 100 wide receiver from Central Valley High School in Monaca, Pa., announces his commitment to #Alabama— Andrew Bone (@AndrewJBone) December 21, 2012
Foster is ranked as the No. 3 wide receiver in the country according to the 247Sports composite rankings, so this is a big pickup for the Crimson Tide. It's also a notable recruiting win considering that 'Bama was able to snag his commitment over Pittsburgh. While that would normally sound like a ridiculous statement, it's important to note that Foster is from Monaca, Pennsylvania, which is under an hour away from the University of Pittsburgh.
Pittsburgh looked to have a great shot, but in the end, Foster committed to Alabama.
His commitment also gave Alabama a pretty huge boost in the recruiting rankings.
