Coaches from Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, SMU, TCU, Notre Dame and Texas Tech have visited his school so far.
Skinny: "I went to the spring game at Texas as my only unofficial visit so far. Oklahoma State and Missouri are recruiting the hardest, since they've actually offered. Florida is the favorite at this time, since I'd have a better chance of playing there than at Texas, which is my dream school.
"I haven't thought about official visits yet."
"My quickness and ability to make the read of pass or run quickly," Foreman said about his strong points on the football field.
He described himself as a “pass rushing type player “, while comparing his style of play to Jevon Kearse of the Tennessee Titans.
"Distance won't be a factor, as I'll look at location. I’m preferring a big city to a town. I will look at the program success, the overall nature of the school, the academic standards and the coaches’ attitudes and abilities as the factors in my decision."
He plans to attend camp at Texas, which would be his dream school, if they offered.
He plans to major in psychology.
He benches 280 pounds, squats 410 pounds, and has a 33 inch vertical leap.
