Washington visit impresses Reuben Foster

7/30/2012

Reuben Foster admitted he was impressed.

After taking an unofficial visit to Washington, the 6-foot-2, 242-pound inside linebacker (Auburn, Ala./Auburn) likes where the Huskies are headed.

“With the stuff they’re building now, it has yet to come,” said Foster, who is rated the nation’s No. 2 prospect in the ESPN 150. “They’re building a program. They’re building a good program. And I’ve seen it. There’s a difference when you see it.”

Foster said he is still committed to Alabama, but his time in Seattle has given him something to think about.

“The impact I could make on their team, it’s great,” Foster said. “It’s something that I want to happen. I’d love to make an impact.”

Foster, who has been committed to the Crimson Tide for almost a year, was in the Northwest to compete with the nation’s top talent at The Opening in Beaverton, Ore., but suffered a hamstring injury while running the 40-yard dash Friday.

He left the event to take the unofficial visit.

“The time I spent with them, it was great,” he said. “It went awesome. The coaches, they care.”

When asked about how the trip will impact where he plays college football, he said, “I don’t know. That’s what I’m confused on.”
