SEC programs zero in on Watch List OG

By Radi Nabulsi

ESPN Watch List offensive guard Jerald Foster (Lincoln, Neb./Southeast) was slightly surprised on Monday when he was told that coaches from the University of Georgia wanted to talk to him. He had already heard from Alabama earlier that day and now the Bulldogs were looking to speak with him. Foster is no longer surprised when a new school wants to talk to him as he already has offers from Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, Ohio and Wake Forest.

“[Georgia] said they liked my film and they gave me an offer,” Foster said. “It was a great feeling.”

Foster plans some research into the Bulldogs program.

“What I like about Georgia is that they are a top SEC school,” Foster said. “The program has a great history. I don’t know too much about Georgia right now but I will definitely look into them and check out their academics and such -- figure out how many people they get through the program to get their degree at the end. So I will look into things like that.”

The Alabama call was to ask Foster to visit this Saturday.

“Alabama invited me to junior day but we are looking at 12 inches of snow in Nebraska so we might not make it down junior day,” Foster said. “I have an aunt that is getting married the next week so they said we could stop by and talk to them about football. So I think that is what is going to happen.”

If Alabama were to offer Foster, the Tide would find the 6-foot-3, 316-pound junior quite receptive.

“I love Alabama,” Foster said. “I was born in Tuscaloosa, Ala., so I have been a Crimson Tide fan my whole life. I used to be straight Alabama but I am going to look into the program and try to figure it out and see my best fit.”
