5-star safety commit moves on in playoffs

The time will come for Texas commit B.J. Foster to concentrate on the safety position. That time was pushed back by at least another week when Foster and his Angleton teammates raced past Richmond Foster 41-10 last Friday to claim the Region IV-5A Division I championship.

Foster, who’s also featured as a running back, scored three rushing touchdowns. He gained 126 yards on 14 carries and added 93 yards on six catches. Angleton faces Manvel in the state semifinals at NRG Stadium on Friday.


Foster participated in our commitment Q&A series following the victory.

I’ve been in love with football since I started playing. My daddy taught me to play hard and go strong, and that’s what I do.

There was a group of us (Houston-area recruits) who wanted to go to the same school and we decided to go to Texas and turn it around.

I wanted to make the right decision and go where my heart told me. Texas was a great fit for me and my family.

What were your initial thoughts of Tom Herman?

NBA Youngboy.
