Report: Alabama WR Robert Foster considering transfer
When wide receiver Robert Foster signed with Alabama in 2013, he was supposed to be a huge get for the Crimson Tide. The Central Valley (Monaca, Pa.) product was a five-star recruit, rated the No. 23 overall prospect and No. 2 wide receiver of the class by the 247Sports Composite.
His career at Alabama, however, hasn’t gone as planned. Having just completed his junior year, Foster has just 21 catches for 205 yards and 2 touchdowns in his UA career.
Duane Rankin of The Montgomery Advertiser writes that Foster could be transferring sometime this month.
“It’s just a process that God got working for me now,” Foster told Rankin. “If it’s here, or if it’s elsewhere, I know that I’m going to be strong as a man to handle it.”
Coming back from a shoulder injury last season, Foster feels he hasn’t had a chance to show the coaches what he can do, stuck on the depth chart behind Calvin Ridley and ArDarius Stewart. With Trevon Diggs expected to have a bigger role in 2017, Foster faces ending his college career as the odd man out once again if he stays at Alabama, per Rankin.
“I just want to contribute to the team in any type of circumstance that I possibly could,” Foster said prior to the national championship game. “… I haven’t had an opportunity and I haven’t had a chance to show the coaches that I’m reliable and accountable for the team, but I’m still syncing it in what God got planned for me. So it hasn’t affected me.”
