One day after receiving a new offer, James Foster made an interesting decision.
The 3-star quarterback announced his de-commitment from Missouri on Twitter on Thursday. Foster’s decision comes a day after he received an offer from LSU.
“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.”

Foster also has offers from several other SEC schools — Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Tennessee. He also has been having discussions with Florida State, according to Chad Simmons of Rivals.com, and has a visit to Illinois scheduled for Dec. 9.
Foster, who plays for Lanier High School in Montgomery, Ala., is the No. 14 dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2018, according to the 247sports composite rankings. He is also the No. 12 recruit from Alabama.
With the loss of Foster, Missouri’s 2018 recruiting class is down to 11 players. Foster, who had been committed to the Tigers since April 19, had been the only quarterback in the class.
This was Missouri’s second de-commitment of the week. 3-star athlete Cam Taylor de-committed on Wednesday.
