Q&A: 2014 Texas QB Foster Sawyer
By Bob Przybylo
No school has officially offered Class of 2014 quarterback Foster Sawyer (Fort Worth, Texas/All Saints). But when schools such as Oklahoma and Alabama are the ones contacting you the most, you tend to not be too worried.
Class of 2014 signal-caller Foster Sawyer says he grew up a Texas fan.
And Sawyer, who is 6-foot-5 and 210 pounds, shouldn’t have anything to worry about in the future.
In his junior season, Sawyer was 154-for-239 for 2,725 yards with 31 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
Sawyer is not 100 percent sure what his junior-day circuit will look like, but he knows it’s going to start in Norman, Okla., for another trip to OU.
SoonerNation: What did you learn about yourself from your junior season?
Foster Sawyer: There’s always room for improvement. My presence in the pocket was a lot better. And as you get older, the game really slows down. I was a lot more comfortable this season.
SN: We are coming up to the junior days. What’s on your agenda?
Sawyer: My first junior day is going to be OU on Feb. 2. I won’t be able to make Alabama’s first one, but I definitely want to make their second one if they have one. I’ll be going to Texas Tech and will definitely try to get to TCU.
SN: Where did the interest between you and the Sooners start?
Sawyer: I camped there two years ago. I didn’t go last summer, but I went to the camps the two years before that. Now that the season is over, I’m really starting to talk more with Coach [Josh] Heupel and Coach [Cale] Gundy.
SN: When you were growing up, did you have any favorite schools?
Sawyer: My favorite school was definitely Texas when I was little. I was a big Vince Young and Colt McCoy fan. Now I’m not a fan of any schools. I like them all and just have to see what fits me best.
SN: No offers yet. Are you worried by that or just taking things in stride?
Sawyer: I’m just going with the flow at this point. I play the game for fun and not for the publicity. Whatever happens, happens. I am hoping the next couple of months might change all of that.
SN: Who are the schools talking to you the most right now?
Sawyer: Alabama has been the one in the most contact, but now it’s OU a lot. TCU and Tech have been in touch a lot. It used to be Oklahoma State, but since Coach [Todd] Monken left, I haven’t heard from them here lately.
SN: Were you able to make any visits this season?
Sawyer: I wasn’t able to get to OU, but I went to a lot of TCU games and a Baylor game. I went to Alabama. It was around this time last year when I started to hear from Bama more. I’m looking forward to a fun spring.
