08:13 AM ET 02.04 | According to multiple reports, Reuben Foster's already dramatic recruiting took another turn over the weekend. Foster, who is rated as the nation's top inside linebacker recruit in the 247Composite index, was in Auburn this weekend taking his official visit but reportedly left the visit early and headed to Tuscaloosa. Rumors of Foster's surprise departure from Auburn appeared to have been confirmed by Alabama wide receiver Christion Jones, who tweeted on Saturday "Chillin with my boy Alvin and Reuben tonight" before deleting the message from his account. Alvin likely refers to four-star athlete and Alabama target Alvin Kamara. The tweet was followed shortly after by reports from multiple recruiting outlets confirming Foster's presence in Tuscaloosa.

If you follow this story, you're going to hear a lot of rumors as to why he left. auburn fans are claiming the rumors came from an Alabama website, but actually the rumors have come from auburn sources.

Don't think I will be following it all that closely. I trust you to keep us informed JK.

I hope he is worth all the DRAMA!

This is the kid with a giant auburn tattoo right?

Bama pays better! ; )

Nah...Bama doesn't pay. The problem is, Auburn used up all it's capital on Cam Newton. They need to wait a few years to replenish the account...

He went there to get some 'que. He's on his way to Knoxville.

Supposedly he was called a racial slur by a current player on the auburn team. They claim that is a rumor started by Alabama fans, but I have had it confirmed that it probably did happen. This same player was accused last summer of using a racial slur against an African American in a fast food restaurant.

I'm sure I'll be called a liar, but it is weird that these types of accusations keeps following the same player.

I heard the same thing. That Auburn's center tweeted the slur to someone. Then this morning, I heard that the center slugged Foster.

The only place I'm seeing the accusation regrding Dismukes is on Bammer message boards. No news outlet has given a reason or a guess as to why he left Auburn other than he went to Tuscaloosa to hang out with one Kamara. The next morning, the five star that Auburn was so at risk to lose confirmed that he was going to keep his commitment and the kid with "bats in his head" was hanging out in Ttown. JK, I thought you said that wouldn't happen? All of this, of course, means nothing if youi've followed Foster's dramatics. We may not even know what his decision is at 9 p.m. tonight!

Foster will verbal to bama tonight, hopefully this will end all of the false rumors and never-ending drama around his recruitment that gets worse every day. Foster's mother was in Auburn all weekend Saturday and Sunday visiting with the AU coaches, she did not indicate there was any problems. Foster mentioned he wanted to go to t-town to hang out with Kamara earlier, they are real close friends and have indicated in the past they want to play together. Kamara is bama bound and it looks like Foster is as well.

Wish Mr. Foster luck in his college and NFL career.

You're right, you're being called a liar. YOU have had it confirmed? By whom? You're FOS. Dismukes has denied this rumor. I'm taking his word over a Bammer like like you.
