Although he's mostly unknown at this time, Union County (Ky.) running back Devin Foster is one of the most outstanding talents at running back in Kentucky.

Foster had limited action as a junior, due to an early season high ankle sprain, but he still had 900 yards and 15 touchdowns. That followed a sophomore season that saw him rush for 2000 yards. But Foster is all about getting better and working hard on his game.

"I want to get faster. I want to work on my agility and stuff like that," said Foster. "I would say my leadership on the field is my strong point. I can motivate my team to do anything to get the job done," he continued.

As football fans know, high ankle sprains are lingering and painful injuries that can put players out for several weeks at a time, but Foster has recovered nicely. "It was just a sprain. I'm recovering good. I'm running on it real good. It's pretty much 100 percent," he said.

Even with the injury and the recovery, Foster felt good about his performance in the games he participated in. "I think I played well. I felt pretty good coming back," he said. "I had to protect myself and play smart ball more than anything," he finished.

Foster hasn't been able to camp anywhere, but he has been hearing from in-state rivals Kentucky and Louisville.

"I don't have offers right now. They are keeping in touch though," said Foster.

Devin will keep his options open while waiting for offers and hopes to major in business at whatever school he attends. "As long as I can major in business, that's what I want to do in school," said Foster. "I'm willing to play for any team. I'm just trying to get into college. I'm not looking to rush into anything right now," Foster finished.
