"I was being recruited by Tulsa and Army, but I went to MS Gulf Coast CC instead because I wanted to be at Ole Miss one day. I would rather be second string at Ole Miss than first string for anyone else," added Jared Foster. "I bleed Red and Blue and now they have a head coach to turn the program around."
did Jared start being recruited by the newly hired Ole Miss staff?
before the dead period, I sent a tape to Coach Nutt. There were rumors that Coach
Campbell could be leaving from Ms Gulf Coast CC, but regardless if he left or
not, I wanted to go ahead and get my name in Ole Miss' system."
was the last time Foster heard from Coach Nutt?
"I will hear everything
we need to know in the morning. We are going up to Oxford tomorrow. I have not
had any contact with Coach Nutt since the dead period started. I just talked to
Coach Campbell about it. He told me if I have a scholarship, that is what I need
to do. I am going to talk to Coach Nutt in the morning to get everything confirmed."
Ole Miss offer Jared a scholarship?
"His words to the people around
me was that they were more than likely going to have a scholarship open. He is
going to let me know tomorrow for sure if there is one open or not. When the dead
period ends tomorrow, I will know for sure if I have a scholarship or not. Coach
Nutt told me before the dead period started that he could not have any contact
with me during the dead period, for me not to call him, and he was not going to
call me. He did not want to break any rules, so I am driving up there tomorrow
to find out for sure. But rumor is that I will, but again I will not know that
for sure until I meet with him."
How much eligibility does Jared have
"I was a true freshman this season so I would have 4 1/2 to
play 3. I told Coach Nutt I do not mind redshirting if they want me to. I just
want to be on the team."
Jared was used in the "Tim Tebow"
package at MS Gulf Coast CC, but due to Jared's size and speed (4.52), he could
wind up at several different positions.
"They said they were going
to give me a look at QB first, but I could end up anywhere from TE to WR to SS.
Again, it does not matter to me. I just want to help the Ole Miss Rebels win ball
games. I have the speed and size to play a lot of different positions. I just
want to be out on the field."
Stay tuned at Scout.com as we
will give you the latest developments with Jared's scholarship status tomorrow
when all parties are informed. We also plan to provide you up to date photos and
video of Jared's freshman season.
Foster wants to follow a life long dream
