Foster close to trimming list

The Nebraska staff has had a bit of good fortune come their way recently at the running back position when it came to some academic questions. When catching up with D.J. Foster from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro he said that there has been a noticeable difference in the Nebraska attention recently.

Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro is a program. They have been out of school for a week and they are back at work already getting ready for the upcoming season. D.J. Foster said they have been out on the field and in the weight room.

"We actually started our workouts this week already," Foster said. "We have been working out as a team on the field and in the weight room. We start seven on seven passing league soon too."

Foster said that there are some areas of his game that he is trying to add some polish to and shore up before his senior year. Right now he's focused on size and strength.

"I am still working on my strength. I want to add some more size and get more physically ready for the season and college. I also want to work on becoming a better leader and be more vocal."

Foster says that there are some camp plans coming up, but nothing is set yet. He knows that he wants to camp at two schools for sure and possibly a third. "I am planning on going to Oregon, Auburn and maybe UCLA. I don't know about UCLA, but I know that I will definitely be going to Oregon and Auburn. Nothing has been set up yet though."

Foster is well into a double-digit offer total and he says that he will get around to trimming his list soon. When he does he will be looking for some input from his family and he will be looking at the relationship with the coaching staffs at the schools.

"I am up to 16 offers. I am getting around to trimming my list. I haven't yet, but I am getting there. I am going to look to my family to help me out with trimming my list. I am looking for them help on that.

"I am looking at the coaching staff. I definitely want to have a good relationship with the coaching staff. I don't want them to leave in a year or two. I want to go there and play for the guys that recruited me."

The athlete tag has been applied to Foster for good reason. He's being recruited to play running back, wide receiver, cornerback and safety at the next level.

"Oregon offered me as a wide receiver, Arizona State as a running back, Auburn is running back, Cal wants me as a safety and Michigan likes me as a cornerback. It's really all over.

"I still don't know if I have a preference. I do like offense. Whatever is best for the team at the end of the day is what I will do."

One of the 16 offers for Foster is Nebraska. He says that recently he hasn't been in much contact with Nebraska and says that he will also consider their move to the Big Ten when it comes to trimming his list.

"I haven't really talked to Nebraska in a while. The move to the Big Ten is something that I have considered. I am definitely more of a Pac 12 guy and the SEC."
