Reuben Foster back in Tuscaloosa

Reuben Foster, five-star linebacker from LaGrange-Troup County, Ga., is the nation's No. 2 overall prospect. Foster, who is already committed to Alabama, was back at the Capstone on the weekend to watch the defending national champions.

"I went over there to practice on Saturday," said Reuben Foster. "I just went over there by myself. I didn't see any other recruits out there that I knew.

"The coaches weren't saying too much. They just told me to stay humble. They said they need me down there.

The nation's top linebacker prospect wanted to observe the normal routine of practice and a couple of Tide players caught his attention.

"The practice was good," Foster said. "Overall the trip was good. It was nice down there. They were just having a normal practice. They weren't scrimmaging.

"Everyone was looking great down there. Trey DePriest really stood out to me and No. 1 [Dee Hart] looked real good. There were some others on the team who looked good."

Foster's only other plans this spring are to return to Tuscaloosa next weekend for practice. He is still undecided about his senior season and if he will remain at Troup County.

"I haven't made a decision yet," Foster said. "I still don't know what I am going to do."
