So do you think Reuben will be the best linebacker of the Saban era dukie?
If he keeps his focus.... Yes. He's is gifted. In "ideal shape" I think he's a 4.49-4.55 guy in the 40 and he hits like a bulldozer.
I was at the same Georgia Rising Seniors (Junior Bowl) Game referenced earlier in the thread. I was actually on the sideline of the West Team that featured Reuben and Tyren. I stood beside Reuben and I was shocked at how thick, powerfully built he was. Then I saw him on the field. Crazy short area quickness and explosion. I was afraid for the East offensive players.
Staff will just need to control his rage (I mean on field rage.....which is good) because he hits so hard he hurts himself. Tore off a fingernail during the practice for that game and got a concussion (coaches had to take his helmet so he wouldn't go back in) during the game.
Good read linked below on what a former student at The U thought when he first say Foster highlights.
If he's stays focused...SPECIAL player. He came to the best place to reach his potential.
Yesterday I was talking to a friend of mine who is an attorney who attended law school at Miami when Ray Lewis was playing middle linebacker for the...
Pic of Foster from Under Armour practice that was posted back in January. That's a grown man.
Thanks to all of you for a very informative thread. I enjoyed reading all of your comments, and a lot of you guys have done a lot of homework. It's so good to read a discussion where there's respect for each other's opinion. Also good to see no name calling.
This is how discusses and differences of opinion should be handled by Bama Bretheren.
with our latest incoming Class it's simply impossible to pick just three.
but for the sake of this thread here ya go ...
The thing about Foster that impresses me is his athleticism. He just makes it looks effortless playing both running back and linebacker.

A'shawn Robinson is a good pick. Interested to see what type of man-beast he becomes under Cochran.
Robinson looks like a full grown man in the pictures I've seen. Should be interesting to see which side of the ball he starts out on. He could very easily play as a true freshman.
I just brought this up because I hadn't heard RF's name come up in quite some time. I'm super excited that this guy is coming to Bama instead of wasting away at the barn.
