Foster: 'Best Visit Yet'

ATHENS – Two weeks after creating a buzz with a surprise visit to Georgia, Reuben Foster returned for yet another weekend in the Classic City.

And this trip, Foster says, was better than any other.

"This visit right here was crazy," he said. "The fans knew me when I went out, people knew who I was and were talking to me about playing here."

Foster, along with talented 2014 running back prospect Bo Scarborough arrived on Friday and stayed until Sunday afternoon.

Foster, who is currently verbally committed to Alabama, spent time with many of the players, including safety Bacarri Rambo and linebacker Christian Robinson.

While hanging out with the players around town, fans kept approaching him and pleading Georgia's case to win the fight his services.

"It was just amazing because there were so many people," he said. "It got around so quick. It was incredible man."

Foster, the nation's No. 1 linebacker in the 2013 class, also spent time with coach Mark Richt. The two have developed a special bond.

"He really didn't talk to me that much about football," Foster said. "He was telling me to keep my head on straight and good things would come for me. It wasn't a football trip for me."

Foster was firm when asked about his status regarding Alabama – he is still committed. But Georgia continues to give Foster pause.

"It's everything about Georgia," he said. "The fans, the coaches, the players – everything. I'm a Georgia boy. I'm from Alabama originally, but I was raised in Georgia. I'm a Georgia boy."

Foster has decided to take five official visits this fall and then will make his recruitment final sometime thereafter.

In the immediate future, he plans to return to Georgia at least one more time this summer.

"I don't know when, but I will be back," he said.
