Marcus Foster Makes It Three In As Many Days

Troy_interior_medium

Scout is listing Marcus Foster, the Troy High School Safety, as the newest Bearcat. I like the pick up, it is more defensive help. Foster only has offers from MAC schools at this point. But he is talented enough to garner a couple more BCS offers in the process. He is a big defensive back, a legit 6'1" and probably 180 to 190 pounds by the time he gets to UC. He plays both corner and safety for Troy. In College I think that he is more than likely going to be a Safety. But he has the hips and lateral quickness to be a corner at the college level. Two things really jump out at me when I look at his highlights. 1) He is a willing and exceedingly able tackler in the open field and he is not averse to sticking his helmet into traffic stopping the run. 2) He has great ball skills for a defensive back in High School. To be completely honest I see some shades of Mike Mickens in Foster. Does that mean I am calling for him to be an All American by the time he walks away from the UC program? No. But he plays a very similar style defensively and posses genuine ball skills.
