Reuben Foster had an ongoing recruiting saga up until signing day. The five star linebacker originally from Georgia was initially an Alabama commitment. Then he moved to Auburn, Alabama prior to his senior year in high school and flipped his commitment to Auburn. Foster even had the Auburn logo tattooed on his forearm. Following the departure of Auburn head coach Gene Chizik, and his staff, Foster then reopened his recruiting and again was strongly considering Alabama. On signing day he showed up wearing an ensemble much like what Alabama head coach Nick Saban is known to wear during practice, leaving little doubt that the commit had again switched his commitment. Reuben Foster signed with the Alabama Crimson Tide recruiting class of 2013.
