Mickey Plyler on Foster: Foster is a huge linebacker that could grow into a defensive end. He runs well for a linebacker, but could be a much faster by defensive end standards. He is more athletic than current Clemson defensive end Chris Register. He is a little like Richard Yeargin but maybe without as much fast twitch. This is another bright kid and another high character prospect.

Reminds Plyler of: Chris Register

Clemson offered him on 1/15/15.
