Did you see what Reuben Foster did out of loyalty to Auburn?

For all the UGA and Alabama fans holding out hope that 5-star LB Reuben Foster may change mind again?

You may want to start focusing on another elite prospect after what Foster did on Friday.

The nation’s No. 2 overall college prospect “inked” his commitment to Auburn.

One day after breaking Alabama’s heart, Foster went out and got a gigantic Auburn tattoo on his forearm that you can see by CLICKING HERE (Note: It was tweeted out by AuburnSports.com’s Justin Hokanson)

Now if a super-sized tattoo isn’t a commitment to a college, what is?

That’s about as close as you can get to signing scholarship papers – which is still about six months away.

One day after de-committing from Alabama, LB Reuben Foster "inked" with Auburn (AJC)

Do you really think Reuben Foster would get tatted up like that for Auburn and then go to another college? That tattoo makes him a “done deal” like no other, right?

Then again, Chester Brown got a tattoo when pledged to UGA last year. But it wasn’t a UGA tattoo, rather the date he committed to the Bulldogs. Chester end up signing with Central Florida.

Of course, there’s always Marlin Lane, who got a Clemson tattoo on his shoulder after committing to the Tigers, but ended up signing with Tennessee.

So there’s a precedent.

I think that’s, what, at least a $300 tat? Reuben must have been saving up from his Auburn paper route.

MC…. Your a bright guy. I find it hard to believe you actually think RF just flipped out of the blue and has just decided to get a tat to show loyalty to his new team. RF was planted by Aub to flip at the most oportune time possible. No doubt about it. Look at the facts. RF was very close to his ex-head HS coach, former Aubarn Tiger Charlest Flowers. RF moved to Aubarn to attend HS. RF flips from the school he has claimed loyalty to for a year at the same time news of Dee Liner’s arrests are making the rounds. RF reads a prepared speach that is a carbon copy of the one TJ Yeldon read last year in order to take a shot at Alabama and Saban.

Would any team like to have such a talent… sure. But Bama will continue to play for National Championships with or without young RF. Can’t say the same for the Barn.

Reuben is indeed a special player. Maybe the best h.s. linebacker I’ve ever seen.

It’s just amazing how overt he’s been regarding this “business decision” over the past 24 hrs. First tweeting that he is “just taking care of my family.” Now this.

His handler is in dire need of an attitude adjustment.

This poor kid will have less of a career than Trey Blackmon.

Good news is that he will finally land Auburn on probation. Too bad it will be a couple of years too late, but it’s time they finally pay for the rampant cheating that they have been doing for years.

Now that the ink is dry on Foster’s committment to Auburn, can we stop with the articles about him in the Atlanta paper. After all, the kid lives in Alabama and he’s going to attend college in Alabama. Let the Auburn/Alabama newspapers take over coverage of their local hero’s daily life now.

Me, remember Tray Blackmon, the best hs linebacker that anyone had ever seen, played in LaGrange, GA? Auburn paid for his girlfriend to go to school, paid for his baby’s daycare. Sound familiar.

Auburn has never won anything without cheating. Auburn is the school that people in Georgia go to when they cannot get into UGA. It’s the second rate school in Alabama, which is a 3rd rate school.

Foster’s knee is already shot, and he is under the pressure of knowing that Auburn has invested a lot of money in his family. He will never do anything in college and will wash out after a couple of years.

Auburn is the renegade program in the country right now. Everyone knows that they are cheaters and that Auburn is a thug, ghetto campus where the players are gang members and felons. Hopefully the NCAA will shut it down soon before anyone else gets murdered or robbed. That is what Auburn football is.

The tattoo must be old as out does not have any of the typical signs of a recent tat job…no redness, scabbing, no sign of treatment, and something a elaborate as that takes time and money. When did he have time our get the money from to do this?

Reuben Foster father’s a child while he is in the 10th grade. Poor judgement-.. Will he be the next Trey Blackmon, the “sure thing” 5 star LB from Georgia (rated #1 LB in the country) that went to Auburn and was a “sure bust”. Georgia just got a commit from the #3 rated ILB in the country and he is not an irresponsible baby maker. Guess Foster’s “girlfriend” lost her job in Saban’s office? Tattoos show a gang mentality and comes from the prison system.

We also have one of the top outside linebackers considering the Dawgs….we just need to beat Bama for this guy. Reuben is great, but so are these guys who have given “verbal” commits to UGa.

Speaking of ink. Enough has been used on the Auburn and Clemson pledges. They have show their unloyalty to the people that paid for their education and training by crossing the enemy lines and playing for the enemy. MC talk about the people that have some class and stay in their home state. Don’t reward being a fink.
