Foster Meets Drevno, Talks Harbaugh

Mundelein (Ill.) Carmel Catholic 2016 OT Sean Foster talks Michigan interest, Jim Harbaugh and more.

In late January Michigan offensive coordinator Tim Drevno made his way to Mundelein (Ill.) Carmel Catholic to check in on junior OT Sean Foster. While he didn’t offer the four-star prospect, Foster says Drevno left campus “impressed” with the four-star ability on the field after an in-depth film session.

“The conversation was he was very interested in what I was doing,” Foster said. “He was very impressed with the film that I showed. He had nothing but great things to say about me. He really didn’t say much about an offer. But if there was an offer – it would be one of the bigger ones.”

Foster continued: “That offer would be very big for me and my family. Growing up watching football. You always hear about Michigan football. To be a part of that would be pretty big.”

At 6-foot-8, 270-pounds, Foster is rated the No. 21 OT and 195th player in the Scout 300.

Foster, who has already visited 10 if the 14 schools in the Big Ten, says another visit to Michigan is pending, but not planned as of yet.

“I’m not very sure about coming up for a visit yet,” Foster said. “We still haven’t figured out yet what’s happening for our spring plans or summer plans. If we were to go back up, I wouldn’t really complain about anything. I pretty much seen everything the last time I was up and was pretty impressed. “

But if he were to visit, meeting Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh would be a top priority, Foster says.

“Obviously, Coach Harbaugh is one of the best of the best,” Foster said. “He’s up there as one of the best coaches of all time. What he did at Stanford, he brought them to where they are at and it’s incredible. The thing with Coach Harbaugh is he’s one of those guys who pushed you to [go hard]. That’s the kind of coach that I like.”

With 22 known offers, Foster says he is looking for certain characteristics during his campus visits.

“I want to first see what the players are like,” Foster said. “Because I don’t want to associate myself with guys who aren’t the type I like to be around. Second of all, I want to go to a school where I can be around the coaches and actually be coached. Then also have them be there for you when you need their help. Or if something went wrong at home, they would be the first ones to know and help you out no matter what is going on.”
