Ever get a tattoo of a girlfriend that you later broke up with? Top high school recruit Rueben Foster can relate.
It seems that Foster, who is one of the top inside linebackers in the country coming out of high school, had originally committed verbally to play football at the University of Alabama, which he backed out on this summer.

Expect to see this removed...
