5-star linebacker sets press conference
The nation's No. 2 overall prospect and No. 1 inside linebacker has called a press conference for Thursday.
Auburn (Ala.) High five-star Reuben Foster will make an announcement at the Auburn High Cafeteria.
The reason for the press conference is unknown at this time, but sources close to Foster believe it will be related to his recruitment.
Foster, 6-foot-2, 230 pounds, has been committed to Alabama for nearly a year. He gave an early pledge to the Tide on July 18, 2011.
However, speculation about Foster's commitment to Alabama has been rampant, particularly in the last two weeks since he made a three-day visit to his former in-state school Georgia.
Foster transferred from Troup High (LaGrange, Ga.) to Auburn in the spring.
Also feeding the rumors of a possible switch has been Georgia commitment Tray Matthews. Matthews and Foster are close friends and both have said they plan to play together in college.
"I'm definitely going to play with Tray - period, no matter what the school," Foster told UGASports.com earlier this month.
The press conference is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. CT.
