Texas Must Remain Patient for BJ Foster

The University of Texas has eight verbal commitments for the class of 2018. Are they on the verge of landing the highest ranked prospect to date? Safety B.J. Foster checks in as the No 19 overall ranked player in America.

Checking in at 6-foot-2, 180-pounds, defensive back B.J. Foster is everything you would want in a safety prospect.  He is long, lean and fast.  Foster has yet to reach his final playing weight.  Texas fans will watch Foster carry around 200-pounds over the next couple of years.  He is physically gifted and is another player that can do a variety of things in the defensive backfield for the Longhorns.  Texas is in a great position to secure a verbal commitment from the talented Angleton star over the next week and a half.  Head coach Tom Herman and the rest of the Longhorn Nation must remain patient.

Scout.com Take


Foster is a force on both sides of the football, and he could be an explosive offensive weapon or a dominating defensive presence once he arrives n the college scene. As an offensive player, he can gash defenses as a running back and cash in long plays. He has great top end speed. His most upside could very well be on the defensive side of the football. He has great height as a defensive back and is rangy. His frame will fill out in time, and he could be a tremendous deep safety, but he also can lock down receivers with his one-on-one coverage skills. - Greg Powers
