We told you over the summer that Auburn had landed linebacker Rueben Foster, the former five-star linebacker, according to Rivals.com, who had originally committed to Alabama before switching his allegiance. Not long after Foster pledged his verbal, non-binding commitment to the Tigers, he “inked” his letter of intent on his arm. So to speak.
Now, five months later, Foster has decommitted from Auburn according to multiple recruiting outlets. Foster did tell 247Sports that Auburn is still in the mix and will be considered before he makes his final decision.
Auburn hired former offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn earlier this week and Malzahn released everyone on Gene Chizik‘s coaching staff, including wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor. Taylor recruited Foster to Auburn.
“If Trooper Taylor stays at Auburn, I am all in. If he goes, I will see where he goes too,” Foster told ESPN earlier this week. “I just need to see where he ends up. If he goes to another school, I will go there. Hopefully that school will want me too because I would love to follow him.”
