Oklahoma to Look Deep in the Heart of Texas?
For the moment, Texas City, Texas 2014 wide receiver prospect, Armanti Foreman is not holding any offers but that trend is likely to change course soon. Last season the 5-foot-11 and 175-pound receiver had 42-receptions for 909-yards and 11-touchdowns which helped put his name on the recruiting scene.
A few weekends ago Foreman impressed yet again at the Rivals.com Underclassmen Challenge catching the attention of many onlookers and was selected as a top performer within the wide receiver group. The camp was an opportunity for Foreman to showcase his talent on the field, an opportunity that he took full advantage of.
Foreman says he enjoyed getting the chance to compete against players of similar talent levels while at the event.
"It was a great experience for everybody," Foreman replied. "All of the kids came out here and competed and everything. I think it was good for everybody to see who the top kids in their class were. And just to come out here and compete with other kids who want to reach the same goal as me."
Going into his junior season Foreman says he is getting some attention so far from a few programs but nothing major at this time.
"I really don't know at the moment. I get little stuff here and there but I don't have any offers. I don't have anybody that's in contact with me. I know I got a couple programs that are looking at me like Texas, (Houston), and Baylor," he said.
Foreman grew up a fan of the Florida Gators but says he is just looking for a place to play where he can show off what he is capable of as a receiver.
"Just somewhere to play and just somewhere I can fit in and show my potential in what I have to bring to the table. Academics and stuff like that," he explained.
Up to this point the Oklahoma Sooners have not been showing interest in the Texas City product. But Foreman says he is interested in Oklahoma and one of the things that stand out to him is the Crimson and Cream, literally.
"I mean everything," Foreman said when asked what he likes about the Sooners. "Their colors are our colors so that's always a good thing to keep the same colors.
"They have great players. Every time they are on TV they show out. I like a team that's going to get a lot of pub. You are going to see them everywhere and you are going to hear about them. And I just like that. I think I would fit in well with them."
Should co-offensive coordinator/wide receivers coach, Jay Norvell and the Sooners decide to show some interest Foreman said he would look at getting up to Norman for a visit at some point.
Foreman discussed his aspects of his game that he does well along with what it is he needs to work on to become an ever better receiver at this point in his career.
"I'm fast and I am quick. I can get off a jam quick. I have great hands. What I need to work on is when I come out of my breaks; I always rise up when I come out of my breaks," he stated.
Foreman has stated that he would like to continue to play with his twin brother, D'Onta Foreman, who plays running back at Texas City as well.
