Foster checking out Nebraska

Offensive linemen are always a key part to a recruiting class. Nebraska might have a little "home-field" advantage for this 2014 prospect who will be a nationally recruited player. D.J. Foster has been a Nebraska unofficial visitor the past two weekends.

D.J. Foster from Lincoln (Nebr.) Southeast picked up a Nebraska offer back in April. On the surface people might have thought that it was just a matter of time for Foster to commit to Nebraska, but it's far from that. Foster moved to Nebraska and he is still learning about the Huskers.

"I have seen the last two games as an unofficial visitor," Foster said. "It was great. I definitely like the program. Being able to see all of the games and the commitments that are going to be joining them next year is something that I am happy to be a part of this year."

When you look at the Nebraska offensive line this year you might have seen some inconsistent play at times. The Nebraska offense though was open throttle and lots of points in short amounts of time. You would have also seen a line with multiple starters that were former walk-ons.

"I like having competition, but coming into a program and coming into possibly playing time as you walk in would be great. The coaches will be able to figure out what they have going. I am going watch next year and see what they figure out what they need to do."

Through the games in Lincoln Foster has seen what could be a great fit for him. He likes what Nebraska does on offense and in particular Foster likes the balance of the Husker offense.

"Oh yeah definitely it's a good fit. I like that Nebraska is a balanced team and that they can pass it or run it. I am happy that I can really go there and see what they are doing."

A reason why Nebraska might have any advantage over another program is that D.J.'s older brother is a walk-on tight end in Lincoln. Older brother, Trey, has had nothing but good things to tell his younger brother about the team.

"He loves it. He definitely loves it. He told me that coming in as a walk-on that all of the other players don't treat you any differently. He said that he likes how it's going for him.

"It definitely helps with the possibility that I go to Nebraska. With my brother there and if I decided to go to Nebraska it would definitely make it better for me."

Foster wrapped up his junior year and although the reviews of his junior performance have been very good he will tell you that he needs to improve. Foster says that the time in camps this summer helped him elevate his game from his sophomore to his junior year and he wants to take another step as a senior.

"I truly feel like I need to work on about everything. I am not trying to be that person, but I want to improve. I felt like I improved this season after going to these camps. I think that I caught on and really did apply it in my game."
