L.A. Valley TE Has Many Suitors

L.A. Valley TE Domonick Foy (6-2, 242) is a prospect whose stock has been climbing ever since four-year schools got a look at him this spring. Now, with 10 offers to his name, the talented prospect told JCFootball.com that he knows the best is yet to come...

"I have offers right now from Virginia Tech, they are the latest one that has come in, Grambling, Howard, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, Missouri State, Mississippi Valley State, Tulane, Tulsa, McNeese State and Western Kentucky," Foy told JCFootball.com recently. "I have a bunch of other schools that have told me they like me and are going to recruit me this fall after they see me play, but those are the 10 schools that have offered me so far."

Foy has taken the long route to get to where he currently is, having spent the past two years finding a home since graduating from high school.

"I went to Warren Easton (High School) in New Orleans and then I signed with a D-2 school, Mississippi College, because I wasn't qualified for D-1," Foy recalled. "I was there for one year, but I just wasn't happy there. I felt like I could play at a higher level and I wanted to give myself a chance to do that, so I left and I took a year off, so I sorta wasted a year.

"I posted that I was leaving and one of the coaches out here at Valley, they heard about me and so they started to recruit me and that's just how it happened."

So, with this fall being his last chance to prove to FBS and FCS programs that he has what it takes to be successful at the next level, Foy said he is working hard, both individually and with his team, to get ready for his redshirt sophomore season.

"I'm working a lot on my explosiveness," Foy said. "I don't just want to be one of those guys that plays tight end, makes the reception and then he gets tackled. I want to be a threat with the ball in my hands after the catch.

"I've been working a lot on my explosion and my speed and just making plays when I have the opportunity."

Foy is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have two years to play two following the 2014 football season.

We will continue to keep track of his progress and we will update news on him as it happens.
