Tommie Robinson has been all across the state of Alabama this week and on Wednesday night is scheduled to see a critical piece of the 2018 recruiting class puzzle.
Robinson, LSU’s Alabama area recruiter, is set to go in-home with 3-star quarterback James Foster, he tells SEC Country.
The 6-foot-3, 210-pound dual-threat prospect from Sidney Lanier (Ala.) High School in Montgomery, Ala., was offered by Robinson last month. Coach Ed Orgeron evaluated his film during the team’s off-week in late October and then went to see Foster throw at his school the following day.
Foster, then a Missouri commitment, reopened his recruitment and told SEC Country that the Tigers and Florida State were his leading schools. The Seminoles offered a few days later.
Foster had hoped to officially visit LSU earlier this month for the Arkansas game, but the Tigers’ coaches pushed back the visit closer to a decision date. As of now, Foster has no specific timetable for making a decision.
LSU hosted 4-star quarterback and TCU commit Justin Rogers for an official visit last weekend and members of the staff will also be in Bossier City, La.,, to go in-home with him on Wednesday night. At the same time, Robinson will go in-home with Foster as the Tigers look to add a quarterback to their 2018 recruiting class.
