While Michigan and Ohio State coaches are celebrating Thanksgiving, they’ll also celebrate being in the running for one of the nation’s best prospects.

Foster, the top football prospect in the state of Texas and the top running back prospect in the nation, according to 247 sports, also fielded offers from Michigan State and Nebraska. Michigan and Ohio State also beat out in-state schools Baylor and Texas A&M to be in Foster’s top five.
Ohio State and Michigan both have two commitments in the class of 2018 so far. The Buckeyes have commitments from a 4-star quarterback and a 4-star running back, while the Wolverines have commitments from a 4-star safety and a 4-star offensive lineman.
