West Virginia impresses Foreman

With numerous recruits in Morgantown, the West Virginia Mountaineers put on a great show as they easily defeated Cincinnati 37-10 this past Saturday. Among those on campus was Naples (Fla.) defensive athlete Lukas Foreman, who Bill Stewart and company are recruiting as a safety.
The 6-foot-4, 195-pound prospect was impressed by everything he saw and experienced.
"It was pretty fun," Foreman said. "I loved it. They showed a lot of hospitality. It is a cool place. I think I could probably see myself there."
Foreman recapped the two day experience.
"When I got up there on Friday I met with the head coach (Bill Stewart) for a little bit and then they showed us around and took us out to lunch," Foreman said. "That night we went to the men's and women's basketball games.
"Saturday we woke up and went to breakfast and then met with athletic academic advisors and watched the highlight tape," Foreman added. "Then we had lunch and went to the game. After that I just hung out with my host."
Upon arriving on campus, the first order of business for the three-star prospect was to speak with head coach Bill Stewart.
"The first thing I did was talk with him," Foreman said. "He was just telling me what he expects from his players and how they run their program. He talked about what kind of people he wants for his program. He said I am one of the kids that he wants."
Throughout the visit, Foreman was hosted by a redshirt sophomore wide receiver who hails from Naples, Fla.
"I was hosted by J.D. Woods," Foreman said. "He just told me that he really likes it there. He said it is a place where you want to go if you want to work hard and be successful. He talked about what kind of program they are and what they do. He talked about the coaches and what they are like. He talked about gameday. Stuff like that."
The highlight of the visit for Foreman was his time in Milan Puskar Stadium watching the Mountaineers dismantle Cincinnati.
"The atmosphere was crazy, the place was packed," Foreman said. "It was fun."
His visit to West Virginia marked his second official visit, having previously tripped to Maryland. At this point, he intends to visit one more school before reaching a decision.
"I don't have any scheduled but I am going to check out Kansas and I think that is it, maybe," Foreman said. "It is between West Virginia, Kansas, and Maryland. I will make a decision whenever I am ready to decide."
While his weekend was great, Foreman hesitated when asked if he was ready to name a leader.
"I don't have a leader," Foreman said. "But West Virginia did impress me."
