SEATTLE -- Imagine for a moment that, instead of reading words on a computer screen, Reuben Foster (Auburn, Ala./Auburn) stands in front of you.

The nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker is talking to Washington’s ace recruiter Tosh Lupoi and the coach’s sales pitch has the standout hooked.

Forget for a moment that Foster lives in Alabama. Forget he has Auburn's logo tattooed on his forearm. Forget the long list of suitors the senior has now that he has decommitted from the Tigers.
