Piece of trash. He is a cancer! No way do I want him.

I'm with you on this one.

Yes, Reuben it's the same old same old at Alabama: #1 draft picks, 8 to 10 guys getting signed each year, battling for the National Championship each year. Yawwwnnnn not all that exciting when you've got a chance to play you your buddy at TAM.
Kudos to the staff for making other team's staff work extra hard to get this guy, but I think it woudn't break anyone's heart if he didn't sign w/Alabama.

Bottom line: If Saban wants him, then I want him.
BUT, based upon what we've all seen thus far from him, he may not be cut out to be Bama material. Before anyone says, "he's just a kid", please reference the recruitment of JJ, TR, et al. Character is in the DNA and it will show through whether you're an 18-year old kid or a 51-year old man (see the new Hilltoppers coach).
I don't know if there's ever been a recruit that needs Nick Saban any worse than Reuben Foster. In fact, I would almost go as far to say that his career may depend on it. I'm not saying there's not other disciplinarians out there, but there's only one Nick Saban Process, and this kid desperately needs it...
I just don't honestly know if this kid will open his eyes in time to make the right decision. And it will be harder now than ever with even more people pulling him in different directions. And I'm sure his mom is a good woman, but I don't know if I would completely trust her influence if what we here is true coming out of Auburn about someone helping her with a job. I have no information as to why I feel that way, just a hunch.
And after reading about him all these months I really feel like Reuben is good kid, but he's a people pleaser (see Trooper influenced tattoo and commitment speech), he hates to tell someone "no", and loves attention-which means the next few months will be a recruiting roller coaster.
I said a few weeks back that with all do respect, "piss on Foster". But, honestly I don't feel that way now. I hope wherever he goes it works out (except when he plays us). I hate to see that much God-given talent go to waste.
And I will call it now: He'll be committed to Texas A&M before the middle of January.

It was so much more peaceful without all the Foster threads. For the record, I don't care one way or the other where he goes, I'll just be glad when his recruitment is done!
bet if you looked up the word committed he has actually been committed to no one!
Choose not a life of limitation
Same ole RF
Id like to know how RF would be ranked based on this year alone. From January till today. All the injuries, wieght gain, flip flopping, etc etc. Forget his sophmore and junior film. How did he look this year?
I know he has potential but that depends on the person working hard and seeing it through.
