SAN ANTONIO, Texas--Lincoln Southeast (Nebr.) junior offensive guard D.J. Foster was one of the top performers at the U.S. Army National Combine earlier this month. At 6-foot-3, 314-pounds, it is easy to see why, as he was able to man handle some of the competition.

"Well I feel as though I did pretty good. I did what I needed to do. I felt I got my blocks. I got my reps. I feel good about what I did today," Foster said afterwards.

"I got a couple pancakes out there. It felt good, we started off stretching and stuff. I felt good today. It felt like I did have a good day."

Rated the No. 14 guard and three star prospect in the latest Scout.com rankings, Foster says there is still work to be done before his high school career is done with.

"Truly, I've got my goals," Foster said. "But the way I play, I like to better than I am. I am going to have to work on some stuff. My pass (protection) needs to be worked on, always. I just need to get in the weight room and keep working on what I got, because I always know there is going to be somebody out there that could be better than me or is better than me. So, that's just how I look at things."

Currently, Foster has an offer from nearby Nebraska. So the Cornhuskers sit on top of his early favorite, but that could change if other programs started to show interest in the Big Ten—especially Michigan.

"I love ‘em, I like Michigan," Foster said about the Maize and Blue. "I have a uncle that lives in Michigan actually. And being able to be around him—if I ever go to Michigan to do anything, that would be fun to be around him. I would be able to definitely be able to go there. I think it's a good program and I am going to look into more of these schools later down the road. Michigan State, they have been sending me stuff too. But right now Nebraska is my only offer."

So what if the Wolverines were to offer? How far would that go in Foster's recruitment?

"If Michigan were to offer it would be right up there definitely by Nebraska," Foster exclaimed. "You know, being able to have family there, being able to see someone I know, it would be great feeling just to have someone close to you where you are going to college."

As far as a decision timeline, Foster says he would like to take care of it earlier rather than later if possible.

"Well I feel as though I am going to try to make my decision come up right before my senior year. If I don't, if I'm not decided by then, I'm going to wait my (senior) season so I can keep my head in on my team and being able to get in a state championship. If I don't do it then, I am going to do it right after."
