AHSAA clears Foster: 'I wasn't worried'


The Alabama High School Athletic Association determined that no violation occurred in five-star linebacker Reuben Foster's transfer to Auburn High earlier this year, according to an Auburn High press release sent out Thursday.

Foster transferred from Troup County High School in April of 2012.

The release said: "An inquiry from the Alabama High School Athletic Association regarding possible violations of the AHSAA Recruiting Rule occurred this month. The query was in regards to Auburn High School student-athlete, Reuben Foster. The AHSAA determined that no vioiation occurred.

"The Auburn High School Athletic office ensures that any transferring student-athlete is in good-standing and in compliance with AHSAA requirements."

When reached for comment on Thursday, Foster expressed happiness and also had a message for those that portrayed his situation in a false light.

"You live and learn, but you better comprehend before you talk," Foster said. "I wasn't worried a bit."

AuburnSports.com confirmed through three independent sources on Monday, that the AHSAA was talking to the Foster family regarding his transfer to Auburn High, and not the NCAA as reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Foster is the nation's No. 1 inside linebacker on Rivals.com and nation's No. 2 overall prospect.
