Michigan defensive back Evan Foster committed to Bowling Green last June, but then opened up his recruitment in early December. He says Bowling Green is still a possibility for him, but he also really like the Orange.
“I stand pretty high with [Syracuse] right now. I think it’s probably going to be about a three or four team race right now, I’m going to say Syracuse, Purdue, Bowling Green and Toledo has recently contacted me, but not much.”
Foster thinks the new ‘Cuse staff is capable of winning and that he’s happy they’ve moved into the ACC.
“I thought it was pretty good because I knew that Bowling Green had a very good offense…I knew that if it transitioned over to Syracuse the defense and the offense would go hand in hand and there would be some winning down at the Cuse.”
The safety will visit SU in a week.
“I’m looking forward to meeting and getting to see the rest of the staff. They might have a couple of new coaches, but mainly a lot of them are from Bowling Green. I’m also [excited about] the campus life and just trying to get along with the players and see how I build relationships with them.”
Secondary coach Nick Monroe has been Foster’s primary recruiter.
“The conversations are very personal…just letting me know he’s here for me and we had a very good relationship before this when my brother went there. Mainly [he’s] telling me that he’s going to be here for me, he’s going to stick through with me throughout the entire process and at no time I’ll get uncertainty or him not being truthful with me.”
For Foster, early playing time is very important.
“A couple of my goals are to obviously play early, touch the surface and become a freshman All-American if possible, if I get in there and take care of my business. I want to put my name out there early.”
