UCLA bound Alex Ghabreselasee isn’t the only reason D-I schools headed to Chula Vista (Calif.) Bonita Vista this May. Bonita Vista is the place that offensive lineman Russell Foster and defensive lineman Howie Fuimaono.
Foster is a 6-foot-6 weak side tackle who weighs 290 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 5.15 seconds. He has real long arms and still he benches 290 pounds. Foster is very athletic and participates in wrestling, throws the shot and discus in track.
“The bigger the player that lines across from Russell the better he plays,” Chula Vista head coach Carl Parrick said. “He’s very lean and has a lot of room to gain weight without losing any of his awesome quickness.”
Playing the all important left tackle spot, Foster is an outstanding pass blocker and he’s a good drive blocker as well.
According to Chula Vista head coach Carl Parrick, Foster has offers from Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, UNLV and San Diego State. There are no clear-cut favorites at the early going.
Fuimaono stands 6-foot-1, weighs 300 pounds and runs the 40-yard dash in 5.1. He plays nose guard for Bonita Vista and projects there or defensive tackle on the next level.
Fuimaono is very mean and nasty on the field but real gentleman off the field. He is of the LDS faith and will probably take his mission before he steps on a D-I campus. The word is BYU has offered or is ready to offer Fuimaono. San Diego State is another school showing interest.
More on these two outstanding prospects as the recruiting process progresses.
