I know Reuben is still a kid and I know his daughter maybe plays the biggest part. Also, I'm trying my best to take the crimson glasses off. However, I just don't see how it's even a remotely tough choice. I can play for the best coach in the country on the best team in the country, and if I do what I'm asked to do ill be a multi millionaire in 3 years time. Seems like the easiest choice I've ever heard of to me. Hope he comes to BAMA.
Can't wait to see him in Crimson.
He isn't the first kid to fall for the Trooper/AU (now just AU) spin machine and won't be the last. The good news is that it isn't too late to do right thing. Seems like a good kid, and he would be a wrecking ball & a surefire first rounder at Alabama IMO.
The off-the-field development stuff that UA does, the academic support, and the on-field coaching give kids a super high chance to be successful if they are willing to work. With Foster's talent level, the sky is the limit. A lot of people, including recruits, just don't realize how far ahead of the game Coach Saban and Alabama are right now.

He has to demonstrate that he can be a quality addition to the team. I have my doubts but hope he proves me wrong and changes my opinion.
Blah, blah, blah. If he signs with Bama, then that'd be great, but because he's a great talent. Would be an awesome sign.But don't get carried away OP... we're for sure not gonna see this guy up for the Disney Spirit Award or the Campbell Trophy one day.

From a 3-and-done, 1st round money standpoint... it's not. There isn't a better place in the country to play as a LB. Ro>Dont'a>Mosley, three straight shot callers in the middle gone (likely) in the first, and Reuben could easily come in and continue that streak.
That being said, I'm not sure that's even a top priority... otherwise, logic says it would be a two team race between Bama/UGA.
Again, I can't be as "transparent" as I want to. Remember we do live in "Boogville"; and all it would take is for one "troll" on this board to ctrl+c/ctrl+v and he'll have a pressure storm coming his way. Pressure like that is not good on a kid who already struggles with being the "bad" guy. I feel the same I felt a few weeks ago. That again is my opinion based off my own "crimson" goggles. No matter what he decides; me and my family will back HIM...not the school he attends...that is unless it's UA. I am sorry; if my vagueness leads people down paths of confusion. Again, I have to protect RF's best interest and not disclose anything I know until he gives me go-ahead.
So you're saying there's a chance?
If you dreamed you were a sleep and you woke up, would you be awake?
I mean he took a visit so he giving us a shot, but honestly dont know where he will end up. I honestly dont care, because regardless he will be supportive. He has other visits lined us as reported on other sites too. We have no inside information. He tell reporters everything we know so were on the outside looking in as well. My honest opinion I would say everyone has a shot. He's looking whats best for him as he expressed to reporters.
With the TJY transcript, the tattoo, the transfer, the de-commit..If he was still committed to AU and thought to be going there for sure, would anyone agree with him as being a good kid with a big heart?
I dont care one way or another. If Saban wants him, I want him. But I know how this board works and this sentiment would not be popular if he was still with the barn. Its just how it goes on boards. No worry though, its just a lesson that our opinions should be held at bay when CNS still has interest in these young men. Like Ive stated many many times, I have stopped stressing over recruiting since that day in January of 2007. Cold turkey!
