Central Valley Standout Robert Foster is Alabama Bound
December 21, 2012
To the surprise of many, Central Valley star wide receiver/defensive back Robert Foster will not follow in Rushel Shell's footsteps and stay home to play his college ball at Pitt. While the Panthers were one of his two finalists, Foster made a verbal commitment to play for the Crimson Tide of Alabama Friday afternoon.Regarded as one of, if not the top recruit in the WPIAL this year, Foster was recruited by all the big name schools throughout the nation, but shrunk his final choices to Pitt and Alabama. Many felt he would stay in Western Pennsylvania and play for the University of Pittsburgh, much like the top recruit from a year ago, Rushel Shell from Hopewell did.
