Foreman Trims List, Sets Visit

Encino (Calif.) Crespi defensive back Tyler Foreman is now focused on five schools and has started setting up official visits. Look inside for more on the four-star safety...

Encino (Calif.) Crespi safety Tyler Foreman is one of the top uncommitted defensive backs on the West Coast, with an offer list that matches his tremendous upside.

The 6-2, 190-pound safety will lead the Crespi Celts, as they travel to Arizona on Saturday, to face Salpointe Catholic in a highly-anticipated matchup to kick off the high school season.

"It's a really exciting game. They are the No.2 team in Arizona and we are kind of the underdog," Foreman said. "All of the newspapers out there are saying that we are going to lose, but I have faith in my team, and that we are going to come out with a victory."

While Foreman's focus this week has been on getting a big win to start his senior season, he has also started narrowing down his list of top schools, and says that five have separated themselves from the rest.

"I narrowed down my list but I am still keeping my options open," said Foreman, who already has double-digit scholarship offers. "Right now it's Oklahoma, UCLA, Cal, Minnesota and Utah."

So what does he like about each school?

Oklahoma: "My dad really likes them and they have really good tradition. They just stand out and are always in the BCS and Top 10 every year."

UCLA: "They are in contact with me like everyday, and they are an up and coming program."

Cal: "All of the Cal coaches talk with me and they are also an up and coming program."

Minnesota: "Even though it's far I'm keeping that option open because my father always says, ‘Whoever likes me, we are going to like them.' They have shown a lot of interest in me the past couple of weeks so I am showing interest in the them."

Utah: "I like the way their defense is, and they are one of the top defenses in the Pac-12 this year. They lead the Pac-12 in interceptions so I like that a lot."

The four-star safety will likely take all five of his visits, with Oklahoma being the first stop. Foreman will take an official visit to Norman on Sept. 22nd to watch the Sooners take on Kansas State.

"I want to see the environment there and if they have my major," said Foreman. "I want to visit the classes and see how the environment is and if I fall in love with the school.

"I want to major in business or communications. I want to have something to fall back on."
