Texas A&M QB Foster opts out of season
Texas A&M quarterback James Foster, a coveted recruit in the Class of 2018, became the first member of the Aggies to opt out of the upcoming season, coach Jimbo Fisher said Tuesday.
Foster, a redshirt sophomore, entered the transfer portal in July but decided to stay in College Station. His name remains in the transfer portal, however, so his return to the Aggies is up in the air.
An Alabama native, the 6-foot-3 Foster played in four games in 2019, completing two of his five passes for 25 yards and rushing twice for 17 yards. He lost the battle for the backup quarterback job to freshman Zach Calzada.
Foster was a four-star recruit and ranked as the No. 12 dual-threat quarterback in his class by the 247Sports composite. He had a more than two dozen scholarship offers and ultimately chose Texas A&M over a group that included Alabama, Florida State and LSU.
