Foster "working on" visit to U-M (w/video)

After GoBlueWolverine broke news of #1 MLB Reuben Foster's interest in Michigan during the middle of Under Armour practice, the Alabama product took a few minutes to discuss that interest after an impressive performance in the Friday afternoon game.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Standing out in a game pitting some of the top high school football talent in the entire country against each other is no simple task. Coming into the 2013 Under Armour All-America Game as the nation's No. 1 middle linebacker prospect, Reuben Foster out of Auburn high school in Alabama did just that, walking away from the loss with a fresh piece of hardware after being named defensive MVP for Team Nitro.

"I felt great out there," Foster told GoBlueWolverine. "It was kind of rugged. You don't know which way they're going -- they're fast. It's like a whole different game speed than regular high school. It's like this is like a miniature college team."

Still months away from officially becoming a division one college football player, Foster remains open to several schools despite signing day quickly approaching.

While southern schools Auburn, Alabama and Georgia continue to stand tall, and have for some time in Foster's recruitment, a school up north in Ann Arbor, Michigan is showing interest now—and with a connection between he and 2013 Wolverine commitment Henry Poggi in tow, the Maize and Blue have a chance.

"When my dude (Poggi) was going to Michigan it opened up something… cause I was confused," said Foster. "I don't know what college I want to go to. I told him it was too late, he just told me to give them a shot.

"So, really, I'm interested as long I'm going to give Michigan a shot. If they've got my best interest, they've got my best interest. If they don't I'm going to tell them. I'm not going to sugarcoat stuff."

In the days following the Under Armour game, Foster and his mother contacted the Michigan coaching staff (GoBlueWolverine will have more on that in the coming days) and as the talented linebacker mentioned in the post game interview, a visit is definitely in the works.

"I'm still going to take a visit," said Foster. "It's working on it. I'm not going to say I'm going to take a visit but I'm working on taking a visit to Michigan—but we got to see."

(Note: in the short period between the end of the game and the beginning of the coaches convention today, U-M and Foster have talked -- stay tuned to see that happens.)
