Foster picks Alabama

Since there had been a lot of hype about Reuben Foster of Auburn, Ala., I figured it would be fair to post a quick blog about his decision tonight — which was to announce he will sign with Alabama. I know people will wonder until the letter is in, but I’m not sure you announce for Nick Saban and Alabama on  TV and then change your  mind and then move on peacefully.

Foster visited UW the weekend of Jan. 12 for one of his five official visits and up until the end there had been vague rumors of a “surprise” announcement that some thought meant going outside the SEC. He had also taken an unofficial last summer while in the area for the Nike Camp in Beaverton, Ore.

Regardless, one recruiting analyst says to wait until the letter is in to completely write this one off (though I think you can, at least when it comes to UW).

Here’s some good background here  and here on the twists and turns in Foster’s recruitment.

In a few other  links worth passing along. …

— Boise State,UW’s first foe of next year, has suspended a couple players.

— FoxSportsWest has announced its schedule for its signing day show, which includes commitment announcements from two UW targets — Keishawn Bierria and Nico Falah.

— Here are ESPN.com’s final pre-signing day recruiting rankings.

— Interesting stuff here on the details of Jeff Tedford’s contract settlement at Cal.
