Reuben Foster decommits from Auburn: Georgia bound?

Kevin C. Cox

Auburn loses one of its top recruits, a consensus five-star and likely the best linebacker prospect in the country. He's also the one who got a huge Auburn tattoo after committing.

Top linebacker recruit Reuben Foster has decommitted from Auburn after the Tigers declined to retain popular receivers coach Trooper Taylor.

Foster is perhaps the top linebacker recruit in the country. At 6'2 and 240 pounds, his highlight film is downright ridiculous.

After decommitting from Alabama, Foster committed to Auburn and even transferred to Auburn (Al.) High School. He even got a massive Auburn tattoo on his arm.

But that was before Auburn's disaster of a 2013 season, before the firing of Gene Chizik, the hiring of Gus Malzahn and Ellis Johnson, and before Auburn decided to not hold on to coach Trooper Taylor.

Georgia has long been considered a favorite for Foster, a native of Georgia, and it is to be considered the front-runner until further notice.
