Foster meets with AHSAA, not NCAA

Linebacker Reuben Foster from Auburn (Ala.) High met with Alabama High School Athletic Association officials Monday and has not been contacted by any representatives from the NCAA, multiple sources confirmed to Monday afternoon.

A source familiar with the meeting with the AHSAA called it “routine” and said it focused on his transfer from Troup County in LaGrange, Ga., to Auburn High School in April.

The transfer came after Troup County head coach Charles Flowers was fired in February. A source told at the time that one of the biggest reasons for the transfer was for his sister, a sixth-grader, who his mother wanted to be in a better school system.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported earlier Monday that representatives from the NCAA were meeting with Foster.

“They are talking with Reuben and me,” The AJC quoted Foster’s mother, Anita Paige, as saying. “They want to make sure there was nothing illegal done to get us down here, or anything like that. They want to make sure there wasn’t a college booster involved.

“No, there was not a booster involved or anybody from the college involved. There was nothing illegal.”

Foster is rated a 5-star and the nation’s No. 1 inside linebacker and No. 2 overall prospect by the 247Composite. He switched his commitment from Alabama to Auburn on July 12.
