What 5-Star LB Reuben Foster Means to Alabama Crimson Tide

Full RideB/R VideoFebruary 4, 2013

Reuben Foster, a 5-star inside linebacker, is heading to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Coach Nick Saban and the national champions keep striking gold.

The 6'1", 240-pounder's highlight tape speaks for itself, and he will be able to make an immediate impact for Alabama. 

According to 247Sports' composite rankings, Foster is the No. 1 recruit in Alabama, No. 1 inside linebacker and the No. 7 recruit in the nation. 

Foster certainly stoked the fires of the already-scalding Alabama-Auburn rivalry when he originally committed to Alabama, then spurned Alabama for Auburn, only to flip-flop in the end back to Alabama.  

Who knows what he'll do with that Auburn tattoo?

With C.J. Moseley, Trey DePriest, Adrian Hubbard and Xzavier Dickson all returning, and fellow 5-star Jonathan Allen and Walker Jones, Alabama has the best linebacking corp in the country.

Watch to see how Foster will help Alabama become an even bigger threat on the defensive side of the ball.
