i see a lot of guys saying he's IC all over again. where do you guys get that from? i personally hope he's all dawg. dude is s beast. and unlike a lot of recruits in America. he would start from day one and most likely be a factor. But other than him committing and decommitting what has he done to get the title of thug??
Nobody has called him a "thug" that I have seen. What people are tired of is the constant drama from RF. But that's part of recruiting. We watch film and see these incredible athletes on the field who make you forget their 16/17 year old kids. Then when they act like 16/17 year old kids people get angry. But regardless of where he chooses to go he will dominate on the field. I hope he chooses the good guys!
What I take from interviews is that doesn't want the attention he gets, I believe he is a good kid but he just don't know how to handle the spotlight. He committed to Bama too early then his freinds lead him to Auburn, and what made that possible was the fact he took a stand for a coach he looked up to and he switched schools. The one thing that he seems consistent with the kid is he is loyal, maybe easily guided but loyal, he stood up for his high school coach and tried to for Trooper Taylor. Which in my personal opinnon, Taylor is a sham artisit, but none the less he tried to stand up for him. One thing everyone needs to remeber these are kids, many are easily swayed and all of them get pulled in every direction under the sun, and they really don't want to let anyone down, he said as much during a recent interview with ESPN ............I don't believe people realize how much pressure these kids have on them. i donee how anyone can formulate negative thoughts about the kid but merely watching his interviews...........I have never heard him down one school, one coach, or even one person and he caught hell and still is on Twitter for all this, IMO he is confused and stressed...........I have no doubt he will be successful whenever he goes but for his sake I hope he lands somwehere where the coaches will help mold him, not so much in the area of football but manhood and teach him how to deal with the success that is sure to follow. For that reason, and I won't lie, and because he is an awesome player I would love to see him play @ UGA under Richt.
I am going to qualify this by saying I've never met or spoken to the guy, I've just followed his recruiting since before he committed to Bama.
Foster doesn't seem to have had a strong male role model growing up. And I think this leads to some attachment issues. He doesn't have the ideal "makeup" that you would hope for in a star player in that he doesn't seem very grounded and he seems easily swayed. He also seems like he is searching for someone to step in and be a father figure. The way he handled the Troup thing was a little weird, and his comments towards his relationship with Trooper aren't what you would ideally want to hear either.
I think where the comparison to Crowell comes in is that both seem to lack maturity, and they are magnets for drama for that very reason. I don't think either player wants the attention they get for how they handle themselves off the field, but both want to be the best when they are between the white lines. They just both seem like they have some extra growing up to do.
He's nothing like IC. He has much more heart than IC(rumors that he didn't have much heart for it, mainly played because he was good) and has a small issue with Weed. Weed isn't addictive and he could quit easily.
