, the nation's No. 3 recruit, switched his commitment from Alabama to Auburn today during an afternoon press conference.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound linebacker committed to Alabama in July.
He seemed rock solid in his commitment, even though he transferred from Troup (LaGrange, Ga.)
to Auburn (Ala.)
, a short distance from Auburn University.
As recently as Friday, he reiterated

safety Tray Matthews
, who has been committed to Georgia since last August. With Foster announcing his commitment to Auburn, Matthews may soon follow suit.
