Below are some of the top Tide football stories for today published by various organizations:

Georgia LB Reuben Foster Is Worth Getting Excited About

By Michael Carvell, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
It’s hard to get too excited about the commitments of football players who have yet to begin their junior year of high school. With that said, the college decision of Reuben Foster is worth getting excited about it. As are a from others from the last few days. The 2013 linebacker out of LaGrange’s Troup High School committed to Alabama over UGA on Monday. Foster attended Georgia’s “Dawg Night” football prospect camp on Friday and told reporters the two schools were “even.” The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder is considered one of the nation’s top juniors at the linebacker position. Alabama also appears to be the frontrunner for another elite Georgia prospect, Grayson High School defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, who is a candidate to be the USA’s No. 1 college football prospect for 2013. “I know playing for a coach like Nick Saban that I will be taken care of,” Foster told Scout.com’s Andrew Bone. “Coach Saban not only teaches football, but he teaches his players about life. My family wants me to play for a man like that.” [More]

He told me they liked me and wanted to offer me.” [More]

Alabama Lineman Lends Helping Hand

By Pete Schnatz, philly.com
Beaver Stadium can be an intimidating place for opponents. But Barrett Jones is looking forward to jogging into the Nittany Lions’ lair when Alabama plays there on Sept. 10, eager to hear the roar of more than 100,000 Penn State football fans. Not much rattles the massive Alabama lineman, and the trip to Happy Valley hardly qualifies as a venture into hostile territory for Jones, who has spent his last two spring breaks tending to earthquake victims in Haiti. “I’ve always felt it’s extremely important to use the platform that God’s given me to do things other than just [play] football,” Jones said. That attitude has served Jones and his teammates well over the last two months, as the state of Alabama struggles to recover from the devastation of an estimated 67 tornadoes that savaged the region on April 27. “Next season we’ll be playing for more than ourselves, for more than the university. We’ll be playing for the community of Tuscaloosa, because these people need something to root for – they need something to believe in.” [More]
