Notre Dame Football Recruiting

Foskey Ready to Learn More About Notre Dame

May 26, 2017

2019 De La Salle (Calif.) tight end Isaiah Foskey had been intrigued by Notre Dame for a few weeks, and the Irish came through with an offer this week. Area recruiter Brian Polian was at the 6-foot-5, 225-pounder’s school this week and made sure a message was communicated to the four-star prospect.

“Coach Polian was at my school on Wednesday and told my coach I had an offer,” Foskey told Irish Sports Daily. “He talked about the tight ends that went to Notre Dame and then to the NFL like Tyler Eifert.

“He said two tight ends on the team might get drafted next year. I didn’t know anything about Notre Dame’s tight end history.”

The tight end success opened Foskey’s eyes to Notre Dame, and he is looking forward to learning more about the program.  

“I know Notre Dame is good at football and the academics are good,” said Foskey. “That’s all I know right now.

“It means a lot to get an offer, and it will make my decision even harder going into my senior year.”

BYU, Fresno State, Miami, Michigan, UCLA, and Utah are a few of the schools that have extended an offer to Foskey, but he has yet to get out and visit programs.  

“I only saw UCLA, because one of my friends went to the Spring Game,” stated Foskey. “I don’t have any summer visits planned right now.”

It’s no surprise Michigan offered early and has been coming after the California native hard. The Wolverines have been at De La Salle many times over the past few years recruiting other prospects, and Foskey has noticed the staff stopping by more than other schools.  

“Michigan and UCLA are recruiting me the hardest,” he said. “Jay Harbaugh has come by the school more than the other coaches. We have met a few times and stuff.”

Early playing is something important to Foskey, but he is also open to redshirting if it’s the right situation. With offers from Michigan, Miami, and Notre Dame, distance is something he will need to look at, but he isn’t 100 percent sure how he feels just yet.

Foskey has thought about possible majors and what he wants to experience on his future visits.

“I am going to the look at the rosters and see if I can start as a freshman,” said Foskey. “I am open to redshirting, but I am looking to play if I can. I want to see if a program is good in math and I like Business too. I might major in Business.

“I just want to find a good environment to live in.”
