LSU extended an offer in the direction of 3-star Missouri quarterback commit James Foster on Wednesday.
His recruitment took an interesting turn 24 hours later.
Foster, the No. 14-ranked dual-threat passer in the Class of 2018, de-committed from Missouri on Thursday. It is safe to assume that his newest offer from the Tigers played a role in his decision.
Foster, a top-12 prospect from the state of Alabama, received a visit from area recruiter and LSU recruiting coordinator Tommie Robinson on Thursday morning. Among the topics discussed was the quarterback depth chart and opportunity for playing time in Baton Rouge.
Foster is expected to make an official visit to LSU later this fall and offered these comments to SEC Country on the state of his Missouri pledge and interest in the Bayou Bengals.
“No comment,” the 3-star quarterback said when asked about the strength of his commitment.
“I can see myself there. This is huge and it’s a blessing. I can see myself playing at LSU,” Foster added. “My interest is very high. Very high. Just know that I’m very interested.”
LSU does not yet hold a commitment from a quarterback in the Class of 2018. Add Foster to the list of targets in this class along with Justin Rogers (TCU commit), Cameron Rising (Texas commit) and Jarren Williams (Kentucky commit). LSU also hosted 4-star Arkansas dual-threat quarterback Gerry Bohanon to campus for an unofficial visit earlier this month.
Consider Foster, who has now reopened his recruitment, among the top uncommitted options moving forward.
