Reuben Foster is the no. two prospect in the country and the no. one prospect in the state of Alabama.

Reuben Foster is a linebacker out of Auburn, Ala. that has gotten used to seeing his name at the top of recruiting lists, but he does not take it for granted.

"I'm honored to be the top prospect in Alabama," Foster told Scout. "I feel like it is a blessing to be that guy. I know I still have to work and to continue to prove myself to everyone."

The 6-foot-1, 245 pound inside linebacker is in a new state now after playing in Georgia his first three years of high school, but it is all the same to him.

"Ball is ball, so it is no different being at Auburn. I got out there everyday and grind just like I did last year."

One thing Foster knows all too well is that he is a marked man.

He uses that as motivation.

"People are always gunning for me and that has been going on since I was a freshman. I just have to stay focused and keep getting better. That kind of stuff pushes me, so I am not worried about it."

Foster is the no. one prospect in Alabama and he is committed to Auburn. See who follows Foster here:
