James Foster, a dual-threat QB in the Class of 2018, made a quick 180-degree turn by de-committing from Missouri and pledging to LSU on Thursday. One former Mizzou QB thinks it was a smart move.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound prospect from Montgomery, Ala. made the decision to flip just a day after getting an offer from LSU.
Former Missouri QB Marvin Zanders, who played in Columbia from 2015-16, applauded Foster for doing so with this tweet on Thursday afternoon.
Foster is the No. 14 dual-threat QB in the Class of 2018, according to the 247Sports composite rankings. He also has offers from five other SEC schools: Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee.
Missouri’s class now shrinks to 11. On Wednesday, Mizzou’s class took a hit when valued safety Cam Taylor announced his de-commitment from the school.
Foster had this to say in the tweet to make his switch public.
“I still believe that MU is a great academic and athletic opportunity for any any student athlete and it will remain one of the top schools that I consider,” Foster said in the tweet. “I apologize if I disappoint some people by my decision but I have to do what’s best for me.”
