Bruins Still In It for Foreman

The Encino (Calif.) Crespi safety, Tyler Foreman, has UCLA in his top two but a Big 12 school at the top...

Crespi is off to a 7-0 start this year, their best start in years and their big play defense is a big reason why. Safety Tyler Foreman has been playing at a very high level with several bone jarring hits to go along with five interceptions on the season.

"I'm just making more plays this year," Foreman said. "Our defense is the same but I'm a lot faster and reading plays better so I'm putting myself in a position to make a lot more plays. This is the best team I've ever been on and I just hope we can keep it rolling."

On the recruiting front, Foreman took an official visit to Oklahoma a few weeks back when the Sooners hosted Kansas State.

"I really like Oklahoma a lot," Foreman said. "I love the fan base and how passionate they are there. I have a great relationship with the coaches and especially both Stoops brothers. I think I like their defense a lot and feel I would fit in really well there.

"They run a 4-2-5 and play a lot of nickel. With five defensive backs, they like players that are versatile and like the fact that I could play some safety, corner or even linebacker. I just loved the overall atmosphere and felt very comfortable there. Location won't play a factor at all for me, I'll go anywhere. I'm looking at this as a four year business trip and right now, Oklahoma is my top school."

Foreman has a few more trips planned and doesn't have a timeframe for when he'll make his decision.

"I'm going to Wisconsin (Oct. 26) and Utah (Nov. 3)," Foreman said. "I'll also visit UCLA and California but I haven't set trip dates with them yet. I'm going to the UCLA game this weekend and right now, my top two are still Oklahoma and UCLA and Cal is right there as well.

"I really don't have any idea when I'll make my decision. It could happen at any time, it just depends on how I feel. It could be tomorrow or Signing Day. None of the coaches are putting any pressure on me to decide. At Oklahoma, the coaches were great about telling me it's my choice and to take my time but also told me how much they wanted me. I'm just going to talk with my parents about everything and then when it feels right, I'll make my choice."
