A look ahead: Dexter Foreman

Although the 2010 recruiting cycle has several months still to shake out, its never too early to begin looking at 2011 prospects. Get inside for more on a 2011 recruit with an early offer from Colorado.

One of the early potential recruits for the University of Coloradois Texas Manvel (Houston) quarterback standout, Dexter Foreman.

The dual-threat signal-caller received his first written offer in early September from CU coach Dan Hawkins and is hoping to visit the Boulder campus on a unofficial visit sometime later this fall.

"Its funny, I was just watching a replay of the Colorado vs. Kansas game on TV and was watching Tyler Hansen scramble around," the strong-armed and nimble quarterback said. "I've got a similar style and I think I can do that at the next level. He (Hansen) is fun to watch. It's real special to get such a high level offer and I'd be real proud to play in the Big 12 every weekend. I grew up watching the teams in the Big 12."

Foreman currently ranks in the top half of the Lone Star Recruiting Top 100 list and is being recruited exclusively as a quarterback by other Big 12 schools such as Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Iowa State. Foreman came away very impressed with the Aggie's traditions and facilities.

Foreman stated he and his father can't wait to get to experience Colorado.

"We've heard its beautiful and neither of us have ever seen pictures like those before. My coach Jimmy Klingler takes his family to Colorado and says it's beautiful. We're excited to get out there to see what Colorado and the Buffs have to offer."

Asked if the Foreman family would be visiting at the same time (Oct. 31) as Manvel teammate, wide receiver Saqwan Edwards, the original intention was to organize a trip together, but the schedule has changed and it's possible that he might come later in November for the Texas A&M weekend or Nebraska game.

Foreman carries a 3.2 GPA (4.0 scale) and plans to take the SAT and ACT in February.

"This will be my first plane ride and furthest west I've been of San Antonio. Hopefully, a camp in Boulder could be a possibility this summer," Foreman said.
