"I'm ...Charles.. Rogers....i had 68 catches 13 touchdowns" I love him. Awesome spartan.
Yep. The Terrell Suggs/Ray Lewis one was by far the best. Suggs is in front of a camera, bragging, saying "Terrell Suggs, 24 sacks, NCAA sack record" when Ray Lewis drives up in a golf cart and says "Ray Lewis, 2 sacks, Dirty Laundry" and makes Suggs grab them. The voice-over then said "welcome to the league rook".
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
For those that have no idea what you are talking about..
Charles Rogers Madden Commercial
Bump. We're in his top 5
He's going to either Pitt or bama...atleast we made the no. 1 wr's top 5
I have an MBA...Master at Being Amazing
He's taking his OVs i believe.
Calvin it sounds like Bama is out. He just had twins and distance is a factor. Helps Pitt though.
Yeah Pitt's in the lead with MSU and OSU behind them.
Edit: Umm.. WTF? This isn't the thread I was responding to.

I think we could still end up getting him. At least it's not B10 school that's in the lead, I'd hate OSU getting him.
Academic issues still a factor here.
Blue Chip Chat with...Robert Foster, Central Valley High School
Defensive back Robert Foster of Central Valley High School.
By Mike White / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Foster is one of the most highly-touted receivers in the WPIAL in a long time. He is ranked the No. 2 receiver in the country by Scout.com, while SuperPrep magazine and Rivals.com rank him No. 4. Scout.com ranks him the No. 16 player overall in the country. Last year he caught 37 passes for 584 yards and scored 12 touchdowns. He's also extremely fast and an excellent safety and kick returner. Foster attended Monaca as a freshman before the school closed and merged with Center to form Central Valley.
Foster has scholarship offers from colleges across the country. One college coach said "he has speed like receivers in Florida and Texas." Earlier this summer, Foster narrowed his list of colleges to seven -- Pitt, Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon and Southern California. He insists he has no favorite and isn't close to making a decision.

Michigan is listed as cool on his 247 profile, Alabama and Pitt are listed as Warmer and O$U and Michigan State are listed as warm.
I think he'll be a Panther. It would be awesome if MSU were to pick him up, but I just can't see taking another receiver with the limited scholarships. I guess if he's still being recruited the staff would find room though.
I agree with you, he wants to stay close to home, so Pitt makes the most sense. Either Pitt, Bama or State.
Central Valley 31, New Castle 7
Jordan Whitehead rushed for 156 yards on 14 carries and scored on a 9-yard pass from Nate Climo to lead the No. 2-ranked Warriors to a road victory in the Parkway Conference. Climo completed 11 of 15 passes for 103 yards and one touchdown. Robert Foster caught eight passes for 72 yards and scored on a 2-yard run. New Castle's only score came on a 42-yard pass from Jake McPhatter to Malik Hooker.

I wonder how Pitt stinking up the joint this season will effect his decision. Seriously, they are terrible, which is too bad. I like Pitt and this is sad to see...
(But as I type this a broken play for a big gain vs. Cincy)
Foster has a game tonight. So he is not seeing the Pitt game.
West: Montour, Central Valley to play in front of TV cameras
September 6, 2012 12:24 am
By John D'Abruzzo / Tri-State Sports & News Service
It's show time.
With the camera's rolling under the lights, Thursday night football kicks off in the WPIAL with one of the Parkway Conference's most anticipated matchups this week.
Root Sports will travel to Beaver County to feature the top two Class AAA teams live on television when Montour visits conference-foe Central Valley at 7 p.m. at Sarge Alberts Stadium in Monaca.

My guess is that O$U benefits from Pitt looking bad.

Montour wins thriller in overtime against Central Valley
September 7, 2012 12:08 am
Central Valley coach Mark Lyons didn't think his team could stop Montour in overtime, so he decided to see if Montour could stop Robert Foster.
After Central Valley scored in overtime to come within a point, some of Central Valley's offensive players started jogging off the field for the extra-point team. Lyons waved them back.
Central Valley decided to go for the win and put the ball in the hands of Foster. Central Valley's star senior did so much during the game, but came up a little short on the two-point conversion.
Montour knocked Foster out of bounds at the 2, and Montour defeated Central Valley, 28-27, in a terrific WPIAL Parkway Conference showdown between the top two ranked teams in Class AAA.
No. 1-ranked Central Valley (1-1, 1-1) took the ball and lined up in the wildcat formation that had been so successful in the second half. Foster, a receiver who takes snaps in the wildcat, ran 8 yards to the 2 and then scored on the next play.
Foster, ranked among the top receivers in the country, finished with 65 yards on 14 carries and caught three passes for 36 yards.

Varsity Xtra: oster rare commodity -- a top WR from WPIAL
September 7, 2012 12:01 am
Foster is a senior at Central Valley High School in Beaver County and one of the few receivers in the WPIAL over the years who has been so heavily recruited and so highly touted. Foster is ranked among the top 10 receivers in the country by scouting services. Scout.com ranks him No. 2, Super Prep magazine him No. 4 and Rivals.com No. 8.
Foster's college recruiting tells you plenty about his talent. This summer, he narrowed his list of schools to seven -- Pitt, Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon and Southern California.
Foster's receiver toolbox is too full to shut. He has good size (6 feet 2, 185 pounds), good hands and Central Valley coach Mark Lyons claims Foster's route-running is impeccable.
Foster also plays defensive back for Central Valley and is an excellent kick-returner. In addition, he will take a few handoffs in games and scored on a 2-yard run in the opener against New Castle.
Foster was a Post-Gazette Fabulous 22 selection as a junior. and Lyons believes Foster is better this season. Foster caught eight passes last week.
"You'd think maybe he couldn't be better, but he really is," Lyons said. "All the college scouts who came through in the spring were pleasantly surprised on where he's at with his running routes.

I understand the situation at hand, but this kid can't end up at Pitt if they go 3-9 or 2-10. Not to mention Chryst is transitioning to an offense that isn't really preferred for wide receivers.. I know it's close to home but nothing adds up there.
Other than the nonsense of wanting to live near his children
They have some nice student family housing at MSU. Well, "nice" may be a strech, but it's habitable.
Regardless of the offense he would need QB to get the ball to him. This has not been a strong suit for Pitt in recent years.
I still think he ends up at O$U.
I wonder if his school's fight song is MSU fight song. I had posted on here elsewhere that Center High used MSU's fight song. Apparently Center High School was consolidated with Monaca to make Central Valley, which is now Foster's school.
He is also a little naive when it comes to college recruiting. Foster insisted he has no college favorite and won't make a decision for a while.
"There was one time this spring Oklahoma was supposed to come in to see him," Lyons said.
"So I see him later in the day and I ask him if Oklahoma was in. He says, 'Are their colors red and white?' I tell him 'Yeah.' He says, 'Coach, are they Division I?' "
