Lawndale (Calif.) Leuzinger linebacker Isaac Foster (6-0, 215) was one of the surprises at the Los Angeles UnderArmour/Scout.com Combine this past spring.
Foster earned all-combine honors after a great performance in the drills in Carson.
Now Foster is carrying over a strong summer onto the field for his senior season, and several schools are beginning to take notice of this sleeper.
“Recruiting is going pretty good,” said Foster. “I’ve been hearing from New Mexico State, Colorado State and Arizona State the most. New Mexico and Idaho have also been interested and I’m also interested in Oregon, USC and Nebraska. Those are three I’d like to hear more from.”
Foster is still waiting for his first offer, but is confident one will materialize soon.
“I think offers will be coming in from New Mexico State, Arizona State and Colorado State,” said Foster.
Foster said that he’s been playing all over for Leuzinger’s defense, seeing time at middle linebacker, outside linebacker and defensive tackle. But when it comes to college, he sees himself using his athleticism more.
“I’m 6-0, 215, so I’ll probably play weakside linebacker or strong safety,” said Foster.
Through the first five games, Foster has 36 tackles and five sacks, despite not getting to play as much linebacker as he expected, the team needing him to play defensive tackle.
“That’s where my team needed me right now, so I’m playing there to help us out,” said Foster.
Foster said that his GPA is a 2.7 and that he will be taking the SAT in December.
