Is El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County Community College four-star linebacker Lee Foliaki heading back to the state of Texas? According to his coach it sounds like he is.
“Lee was at Texas A&M this weekend, and we figured that he was going to go ahead and commit,” Butler County coach Troy Morrell. “I don’t know for 100 percent sure that he committed, but the plan was for him to go down there and commit. He’s going to be a great player for them.”
Foliaki, originally from Euless (Texas) Trinity, was one of the nation’s top junior college linebackers for the past two seasons. He earned All-American honors after leading his team in tackles.
“It’s a great situation for Lee,” Morrell said. “He’s going to get back home and play in his home state, and there is no question that A&M is going to be a much better program. It’s a great fit for him.”
According to Butler County coach Benjy Parker, the commitment is now 100 percent official.
“I just talked to Stan Eggan,” Parker said. “He and Fran were in his home last night and Lee went ahead and committed to them. It’s a great fit for him, because it’s in the state of Texas and you now can have his family see him play.”
