The Baylor Bears had some fireworks of their own on the Fourth of July, landing 2024 three-star defensive lineman Alex Foster out of St. Joseph High School in Greenville, Mississippi.
Foster, listed at 6-5, 250 pounds, is the No. 38 DL and No. 12 overall player in the state of Mississippi, according to On3.
This is a big win for Bears’ DL coach Dennis Johnson on the recruiting trail, landing Foster over a bevy of other suitors, such as Arkansas, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, and Louisville.
“First I would like to Thank God for putting me in this position and my mom for being my rock through it all for without them this would be impossible. After long thinking on it I am excited to announce I am 100% committed to Baylor University! Respect my decision. SicEm,” Foster said in his commitment post.
When discussing what stood out about the Bears’ program with Sic’Em365 after his official visit last month, Foster said it was the people in Waco that made the difference.
“Man the people, the love, the atmosphere, and the staff [stood out].” he said following his official visit. “They really pushed what they valued more which is the Person over the Player and character development over the athlete development, building you as a man off the field.”
With their most recent commitment, Baylor now has 12 pledges for the class of 2024, bringing them up to No. 48 nationally and seventh in the Big 12 for this cycle.
