Bearcats Look To Hook A Texan

Bearcats in the race for a Longhorn State prospect to fill a much needed position in the Class of 2009.

One of the changes for the Bearcats this year is linebacker coach William Inge. The former Iowa linebacker came to Cincinnati from San Diego State and has also coached at Colorado, Northern Iowa and Iowa after a successful career for the Hawkeyes and a short stay with the Tennessee Titans.

Anytime a new coach comes to a staff they bring different areas of recruiting from their past. This year the Bearcats are again looking to Texas for talent and hoping to land a gem of a player in Eddie Foster of Colleyville Heritage High School.

Foster, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound cornerback holds double digit offers from schools across the country. Several being high academic schools which he stresses will play an important role in making his college choice.

"I want to find a school with good academics and a coaching staff that I can connect with. The school and the city the school is in must have things to offer me because I don't want to go some place with nothing to do."

While Eddie has been timed as fast as 4.26 in the forty, this past spring saw him suffering from a pulled hamstring that derailed his track season.

With hopes of making a July visit, Foster is in no hurry to make a college decision and will look to take his visits to make sure he finds the right fit for him.

Can the Bearcats pull one away from the Longhorn State? We'll continue to follow Eddie Foster and see.
