Foster (6 feet 3, 210 pounds), from Montgomery (Ala.) Lanier, is considered one of the nation’s top-20 dual-threat quarterbacks and a top-20 recruit overall in Alabama. He also has offers from, among others, Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi State, North Carolina and Tennessee. He made an unofficial visit to Alabama in late March.
Foster committed to North Carolina in 2015, and has enjoyed a decorated high school career despite being run over by a car and suffering multiple injuries as a high school freshman in 2014. Foster and a friend were on the hood of a car before the driver playfully began driving, and Foster’s foot was caught on the pavement while the vehicle continued moving. “I just remember my foot had touched the ground,” he told AL.com, “and the car just sucked me up under there.”
He escaped with no broken bones or structural damage to his shoulder or knee joints, but missed the first six games of the 2014 season.
