High School Star Commits To Auburn Via Tattoo

Reuben Foster commits to Auburn and tattooReuben Foster is a nationally-ranked prospect from Troup County, Georgia, who committed to defending national champion Alabama last July. The 6-1, 240 pound middle linebacker, who is listed as the number two recruit in the nation by Rivals.com, then decided he wanted to play his final year of high school ball in the city of Auburn, Alabama, while still being actively recruited by universities such as Georgia, Auburn and Washington. 

Foster, who will play this season with the sons of some Auburn assistant coaches at his new high school, decided to flip over to hated rival Auburn recently, proving loyalty to his new school by getting a massive tattoo of the Auburn logo on his forearm. 

He cannot sign a national letter of intent to play for the War Eagles until February 6, 2013, instead electing to literally ink his college choice by his action, rather than his word. 

"I am 100 percent comforted with my decision," said Foster. "I feel great about this decision and I'm ready to get started.”

This undoubtedly means there is no chance that Foster will change his mind again and sign with Alabama; unless, of course, he decides to wear long sleeves for the rest of his life.
