C.J. Mosley Anxious To See Reuben
Posted Aug 28, 2013
When one thinks 2013 Alabama defense, one may think of All-America linebacker C.J. Mosley. So guess who Mosley can’t wait to see on the field for the Crimson Tide defense?
“I'm excited to see
linebacker C.. Mosley said. Mosley will be among those who see tailback Henry (6-3, 238) and linebacker Foster (6-1, 244) when the Crimson Tide opens the season Saturday against
in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Kickoff is at 5:30 EDT (4:30 central). ESPN will televise the game.
Mosley said that Henry, who arrived last spring, made his mark in spring practice before suffering a broken leg. “It’s going to be exciting to see, just like last year when
last year when he made his first mark in the first game.”
But Mosley is a defensive guy, and is really excited about Reuben Foster “just because he has so much talent.”
Foster is listed as the second team middle linebacker behind
And, Mosley said, Foster has already made his mark with his teammates. Twice he has knocked himself out making tackles, most notably a hit on freshman tailback
in Bama’s last scrimmage. The hit has taken on mythical proportions.
Mosley said that if Foster and Henry had a collision, it would be “way worse than what happened with him and Altee. Foster hits pretty hard. He hit Altee in the hole.
“He made the tackle, so I guess that’s the good part.”
Mosley said that Foster has grown up in fall camp and has shown that he is “coachable and accountable to the position. Some players learn faster than others, and he’s one of those players that has a chance to showcase his talent. He did what he has to do when he stepped up, so he’s going to have his chance.”
Foster, Mosley said, “is just a physical linebacker. So much raw talent. He still has to learn the defense a little more, still has some things where he can get better such as footwork or knowing the concept of the game and the defense.
“But as far as being a physical player, he’s just one of those big, big guys.”
Mosley said that Foster may also show up on special teams, including kickoff and punt coverage.
wouldn’t concede “biggest hitter” title to Foster, but admitted, “He brings the boom.”
