It was Alabama's turn to make some noise and it doesn't get much louder than this: Reuben Foster (LaGrange, Ga./Troup County) is headed to play for the Crimson Tide. This elite 2013 linebacker prospect from the Peach State committed to Nick Saban and Alabama on Monday.

"I love the tradition of Alabama," Foster said. "They are all about tradition and national championships."

Foster, 6-foot-1 and 225 pounds, also felt like the chemistry he had built up with the Crimson Tide staff was just too strong.
