Alabama lands top receiver prospect
By Chris Low
Quarterback AJ McCarron has already announced that he's returning to Alabama for his senior season, and it looks like he'll have another talented receiver to throw to next season.
Robert Foster, rated by ESPN as the No. 2 receiver prospect in the country, announced Friday that he planned on signing with the Crimson Tide. The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Foster is from Monaca, Pa., and picked Alabama over Pittsburgh.
One of the question marks concerning Alabama coming into this season was at the receiver position. But with freshman Amari Cooper breaking out with nine touchdown catches and talented freshman Chris Black also waiting in the wings, the receiver position figures to be a strength with Foster joining the ranks next season. Foster is also an accomplished return man on special teams.
The Crimson Tide now have 14 ESPN 300 players committed in the 2013 class.
