D.J. Foster has been to Arizona State so many times nothing really surprised him this past weekend during his official visit but it was still valuable to take the trip so his family could get a better look at what the Sun Devils have to offer.
Since Arizona State is the top school on his list, Foster thought it was important to take another close look before making his decision.
"I had a really good time," Foster said. "I've been down there a bunch of times so it wasn't a big deal to me but I met some new people. It was more for my parents, for my mom so she could see the education side of things and see the campus. That was more important to me this weekend.
"It was crazy at the game. I had a really good time. Some kid had my name on a poster so that was pretty cool. My parents and my aunt had a great time, too."
Foster, a four-star athlete from Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro, will take an official visit to Oregon when it hosts the Sun Devils on Oct. 15 and then the 5-foot-11, 190-pound prospect could be ready to make his commitment.
Arizona State leads but Foster expects to be blown away by the Ducks so things are still undecided.
"ASU knows how I feel about them and I know how they feel about me," Foster said. "It's still my No. 1 and everything but I want to take advantage of that Oregon trip. It's still between ASU and Oregon as of now.
"Those are my two main focuses. I want to give (Oregon) a chance and see what they have to offer. My dad was up there a couple weeks ago and he loved it so I want to see what he saw. Hopefully, I can have my decision soon after that trip."
The four-star said he already knows about Oregon's neat uniforms and outstanding facilities so when he gets to Eugene it's going to be more important to meet the coaches and players, get a feel for what the program is about and see if it's a place he could spend his college career.
"I already know about all the uniforms and the facilities and I expect to be amazed by that stuff," Foster said.
"I want to see more of the coaches, their work ethic, how they handle stuff and I'd like to meet some of the players. I understand it's a beautiful place. I want to see the city, see what it's about and meet some of the people."
Rivals.com rates Foster as the fifth-best athlete and No. 84 prospect in the 2012 class. He's second in the Arizona state rankings.
