The Texas A&M Football team had another year with a top ten recruiting class in 2021. Along with a highly-touted recruiting class comes high expectations for almost every player involved.
When you take a look at the 2021 class, there are a few players who stand out on paper. You can take a look at Shamar Turner, a 5-star defensive tackle who could easily come in and make an instant impact. Some people are getting excited about Eli Stowers, a top ten dual-threat quarterback recruit who could be a sleeper in the team’s quarterback competition.
But one player that won’t immediately grab your attention is offensive guard, Bryce Foster.
Texas A&M Football incoming freshman G Bryce Foster will turn heads
Perhaps it’s the fact that he’s an offensive guard, one of the more under-the-radar positions on the team. Maybe it’s the fact that he is a 4-star recruit on a team that has a couple of 5-star guys coming in. Whatever the case is, Bryce Foster is not getting enough love from Texas A&M as a fanbase.
It may be hard to keep up with an offensive lineman at the high school level, but if there’s a guy to keep your eye on, it’s Foster.
Foster has size, strength, and athleticism that simply cannot be taught. While he has a ways to go from a technique standpoint, he is ready to compete at a physical level. He has all of the natural attributes that could allow him to step some of the best rushers in the country in the SEC.
He made this clear when he won a state title for shot put. In fact, he is so powerful that his second-best throw would have won the event at 68 feet. Ultimately, he’d win the gold medal in a landslide with a 71 feet, 1-inch throw.
But even though the man is physically menacing, he doesn’t rely on his strength and size to make blocks. While he has a lot of room to grow at the college level, he is a student of the game who dedicates time to learning proper techniques rather than just throwing players down.
He’s a player with an extremely high floor and an even higher ceiling. At worst, expect Foster to be a multi-year starter who could sneak into the team’s starting lineup in a 2021 season where the team is replacing four starters on the offensive line.
