Foreman: Two Schools Recruiting Hardest

In a deep year for safeties out West, Encino (Calif.) Crespi's Tyler Foreman is one of the best. He had a solid showing at The Opening a few weeks ago and said two schools are currently recruiting him the hardest...

Tyler Foreman is a big, physical safety and had a strong week up in Oregon for The Opening. He tested well during the SPARQ competition running a 4.63-40, 4.26 shuttle, jumped 34 inches in the vertical and threw the power ball 37' for a very solid 95.19 Rating.

He looked good on the field as well and shows a lot of range for a big safety. At the next level, he could play either safety spot as he covers well enough to play free but is strong and tough enough to play in the box.

"This was a really good event and I enjoyed the competition," Foreman said. "It was the top 150 players in the country and I was excited to see how I matched up. Back home, I'm a dominant player but out here, I'm just another guy, there's like 50 of me out here, so it was fun to compete for sure.

"I think the high point was getting to know everyone on and off the field. I got to hang out with all the top guys in the players lounge and then compete against them on the field. It was a great experience and overall, I felt like I definitely belonged."

On the recruiting front, Foreman said two schools are currently recruiting him the hardest.

"It's definitely UCLA and California," Foreman said. "I talk to them almost every day, either me calling them or they'll hit me up on facebook. I've been to UCLA a few times and really like it there. They have a great school and I think the program is going in the right direction.

"I haven't been to Cal yet but I'm going to try and get out there in the summer if I can. If not, I'll definitely take an official visit. Right now, I know I'm going to visit Oklahoma but need to talk with Coach Stoopes to lock in a date."

Foreman said he would like to take at least three of his official visits, two during the season.

"We have two bye weeks so that's when I would like to visit," Foreman said. "The last visit will be after the season. I'm not in any hurry to decide right now and really don't have a leader. Once I'm done with my trips, I'll sit down with my dad and we'll figure out where the best place for me will be."
