D.J. Foster Rushes For Over 500 Yards, Scores Ten TDs, To Choose Between ASU And Oregon

D.J. Foster has a big decision to make. I'm guessing that whoever he ends up choosing will be really happy based on this weekend's performance.

Tom Bergeron of Rivals reports on a record-setting game from Foster.

Foster needed just 20 carries to reach 508 yards - an average of just over 25 yards per carry. His longest run was 80 and it went for one of his seven rushing touchdowns. He also caught three touchdown passes.

...

Jon Perryman, the editor and publisher of ArizonaVarsity.com - the leading source for high school sports in the state - says Foster is the real deal.

"He is on pace to be player of the year," he said. "He has excellent size and runs very fluidly. He reminds me of Eric Dickerson."

What a game. Hard not to like Foster's chances to pan out at the next level. If you can roll like that in high school, it's highly likely he'll be doing the same at the next level.

It's starting to look like Foster is going to be a welcome addition to either the Arizona St. Sun Devils or the Oregon Ducks. Foster does seem to believe Oregon is the best fit (and who can argue with such rushing proficiency), and he definitely could be the next breakout star in Chip Kelly's offensive schemes. But Arizona State could also factor in because it's right there, and Foster might have even less competition to shine and produce to start more quickly.
