Here’s a familiar sentence — Michigan State football got a commitment from a Lakewood St. Edward (OH) player.
Now usually that’s meant a Dowell brother has committed, but this time around it comes in wide receiver Montorie Foster. The St. Edward senior pledged his commitment on Monday on Twitter in a video that also showed off some basketball skills.

Now the basketball cut is interesting in this aspect — he’s been playing that sport the longest and also has at least one low Division I offer (Eastern Kentucky). He’s only been playing high school football since his senior year and hadn’t played organized football since seventh grade.
Now? He’s a Spartan and comes to East Lansing with plenty of upside talent.
Understandably so after playing for just one year, his offer list wasn’t too big and had schools like Kent State, Bowling Green and Akron on it. However, Michigan State gets the pleasure of taking on the raw talent in hopes to mold him into another receiver threat.
Foster becomes the third receiver in the 2020 class, joining Georgia prospect Ricky White and and Rockwood’s Ian Stewart. That brings MSU to 17 total commits for the 2020 — a class that now ranks No. 43 in the nation per 247Sports.
Good news for MSU. Welcome to the Spartan family, Montorie!
