On the field, UTEP Minors’ 59-3 demolition at Darrell’s Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium did not have much drama for the Texas Longhorns on Saturday evening. However, junior safety BJ Foster reportedly left the team during the third quarter due to lack of playing time.
According to Chip Brown of Horns 247, Foster apparently had second thoughts very quickly – he weighed in with his teammates on Sunday.
Then, on Sunday evening, Anwar Richardson of Orangeblades reported that Foster met with the coaching staff and Decided to stay with the team. Coaches are expected to meet Monday with the Longhorns about Foster’s immediate future.
A former unanimous five-star prospect who ranked as the No. 24 player nationally in the 2018 recruiting class, Foster was ranked No. 3 in the nation, according to the overall team rankings of the 247 Ports, for Texas. There was a big coup. .
After reaching forty acres, Foster made an immediate impact, starting six games and recording nine tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles, two quarterback hurries and five pass breakups. Last season, Foster played through a shoulder injury that required offseason surgery, but he still started eight games, although his production was cut short.
However, the Presiden camp clearly did not go as Foster envisioned – he lost his starting job to fifth-year senior Chris Brown and played sparingly in the first half against UTEP.
The question now is what kind of punishment Foster will get for his harsh decision on Saturday and how much time he can play in the crowded security room going forward.
