Foster stays home

Senior Lincoln Southeast product Trey Foster will walk-on at Nebraska. The tight end says he always felt at home in Lincoln.

Lincoln Journal Star Super All-State team member Trey Foster has decided to walk-on at Nebraska. The Lincoln Southeast tight end, a teammate of commitment Sam Cotton, is 6-foot-2, 235 pounds with a 4.8 forty.

"It makes it a ton easier, because I know guys there that I have played with in the past," said Foster, who also played with 2011 signee David Sutton. "Going into it, I had the option of going to Southeast Missouri State or Nebraska. Not to take anything way from Southeast Missouri State, but they don't have the same things Nebraska can offer me. Like people I have played with before or against."

Lincoln Southeast finished 13-1 on the year and won a state championship with the help of Foster. The senior visited Memorial Stadium multiple times throughout the season to watch Nebraska first hand.

"When I went there, it always felt like home. Being here for the past ten years of my life, every one around the state and the city makes me feel like I'm at home," said Foster. "Everybody has been telling me, you got to play for Nebraska, you got to play for Nebraska. I always said maybe, but the last couple of weeks I have finally felt like that was going to happen, so I decided to cash in on it."

So what type of player are Nebraska fans getting?

"They are going to get a player that's always giving 100 percent on the field and at tight end," said Foster. "I'm a tight end who can go over the middle, catch the ball, and block for the running backs. I can also move around a little and play a little up back."

Foster reports a 3.39 GPA and is likely a business major.
