B.J. Foster, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound four-star safety prospect from Angleton (Texas) has never been a man of a many words, but today he made the decision to pick the Texas Longhorns over offers from schools like LSU, Michigan, Ohio State and TCU.
The decision may have been in the works for a good while, as a matter of fact it was after a visit to the UT spring game that news started to leak out that Foster was leaning to the 'Horns, but he made it 100 percent official today with a social media posting of the news confirming he was indeed a part of the #revolUTion18.
"The coaches there are pretty friendly around there, but when it comes down to business they know how to get focused and tell everybody to get focused and they take care of their kids down there," Foster said.
Foster is excited to get started with his career as a Longhorn, so excited he will be getting an early jump on his career.
"I am graduating early, so I will be up there for this spring," Foster explained. "Practice hard, play hard and I will get my chance, because they play five DBs up there."
Foster joins Caden Sterns and DeMarvion Overshown to form a trio of safeties that have made early verbal pledges to sign with UT. All three prospects are rated as members of the Scout Top 100 and bring different qualities and strengths to the table as prospects.
Foster cites a strong relationship with former UT standout and current quality control assistant Michael Huff. "He played in the NFL, so I look up to him," Foster said.
Foster will play in the 2017 Under Armour All-America Game.
2016: In an injury shortened junior season Foster racked up over 600 yards on offense and scored 11 touchdowns.
