Michigan State football landed one of the fastest-rising recruits in the nation in three-star wide receiver Montorie Foster from St. Edward in Ohio.

After a weekend that was filled with bad news that carried over into Monday morning when Charles Rogers’ death was reported, Michigan State finally got some positive vibes with a commitment from fast-rising three-star receiver Montorie Foster from St. Edward in Ohio.

On Monday night, Foster posted his commitment video on Twitter.


The 6-2, 175-pound three-star wide out from the Ohio powerhouse hadn’t played football since seventh grade and was focused strictly on basketball, as the starting point guard for the varsity team, but decided to give the sport another shot as a senior and he has flourished.

It’s difficult to make a name for yourself as a first-year football prospect because you’ve seen a lot of kids play the sport for four years of high school and never receive a single FBS offer.

Well, Foster had four after just three months of getting back onto the field, and as his commitment video stated, he’s as raw as can be. He didn’t even know how to line up properly at the start of the season and now he’s a Spartan with as high a ceiling as any of the 2020 commits.

What makes him so intriguing is his athleticism as well as his willingness to block. He can turn a poor throw into a big gain and a lot of his highlights are him coming back to the ball or making catches in traffic. He has a knack for finding the ball, rising and making the catch as its highest point to where only he can make a play.

If he’s already this good one year into his football career, the sky is the limit for Foster who just happens to be in that Ohio pipeline that usually excels in East Lansing.

Foster was able to catapult to No. 822 nationally as well as the 129th-best receiver in the 2020 class, per 247Sports, in just a few months. Not too shabby.
