Foster hopes to decide before the season

Anthony Foster is enjoying the recruiting process. But the 5-foot-9, 177-pound athlete from Tulsa (Okla.) Union does not want to draw it out.

"I don't know when I want to narrow it down but I know I want to make my college decision before our first game of the season," he explained. "I don't want recruiting to distract me from our team goals next season."

Foster currently claims written scholarship offers from Kansas State, Colorado, Tulsa, Wyoming and Dartmouth.

He claims verbal offers from Air Force and New Mexico.

"Of the schools that haven't offered yet, I also like Texas Tech and Kansas," Foster added. "I like the style of offense that both of those schools play. They like to throw the ball around."

Colorado's offer came in the mail last week.

"It feels really good to get that offer," Foster said when asked about the Buffaloes. "I'm happy with any Big 12 offers.

"But I haven't really been able to form much of an impression [about Colorado]. I haven't talked to them that much."

Kansas State, the first program to offer, is among the colleges that Foster has high interest in.

"I talk with Coach McCarty quite a bit, " Foster said of Kansas State. "I just talked to him the day before yesterday. I've built a good relationship with him."

This summer, Foster plans to attend camps at Kansas State, Texas Tech and Kansas. Oklahoma State is also a potential camp destination.

An all-area selection last fall as a junior, Foster caught 45 passes for 816 yards and 13 touchdowns. He also had 160 yards rushing.

"I am going to be playing a lot more defense this year so that is something that I want to improve on this summer," Foster said. "I was practicing at cornerback during spring ball."

Foster is being recruited on both sides of the ball. He would prefer to play wide receiver in college.

Foster possesses impressive speed. He clocked in at 10.81 seconds in the 100-meter dash during track. "There are not too many people that will catch me once I get in the open field," he said.
