5 Star MLB Reuben Foster Recruiting “Confusing” Right Now

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Auburn High‘s five-star MLB Reuben Foster is apparently at a loss right now when it comes to recruiting.

“I want the best for me and my family, but it’s confusing right now,” Foster told The Opelika-Auburn News. “I don’t know what to do.”

It has been a topsy-turvy process for Foster; he first committed to Alabama in 2011, and then flipped to Auburn before last season. December 7th saw him de-commit again after Auburn fired their head coach Gene Chizik and here we are. The next step in Foster’s process is just slowing down and figuring out what’s best for him.

Since de-committing, Foster is still considering Alabama, Auburn and Georgia . Foster has a four year old daughter name A’Ziya, and wants to do the best he can in football for his family.

“My daughter means the world to me,” he said. “Just to know that I’m trying to support her and my family. It makes me go harder. It makes me want to die for the sport because if you want to die for the sport, you want to die for your family because I’m doing it for my family.”

Foster is widely considered the best linebacker in the class, and will be a difference maker at the college level just based upon his size and speed. You add his football instincts to that and he could be a very special college football player. We will all follow his recruitment until he commits, hopefully for the last time.
