The prospect of early playing time at MSU could intrigue Foster. We don't have any bigger wideouts that are making an impact on the field right now.
North Allegheny lineman Pat Kugler will play in the Under Armour All-American Game in St. Petersburg, Fla., Jan. 4. Central Valley receiver Robert Foster and Belle Vernon offensive lineman Dorian Johnson also will play in the game that will be televised live by ESPN.

Announced a Top 3 of Ohio St, Pitt, and Bama.
O$U is relatively close, about 31/2 hours away, and he has said he wanted to stay close the home. Alabama does not make sense if he wants to stay close to home.
It stinks that a week ago MSU was one of four getting visits with no leaders. Now demoted. Is he still visiting? Kids!
Alabama doesn't make sense, unless a boo$ter accidentally drops a plane ticket on his doorstep to go home to PA every weekend.
3.5 hrs from home is still far for a student athlete also trying to be a parent. That's seven hours there and back to go and see your child. Not easy to fit that in to the kind of schedules these guys have to run.
According Post-Gazette Top 3 are last three but, I think we knew that.
Central Valley's Robert Foster, ranked among the top receivers in the country, has narrowed his list of colleges to three -- Pitt, Ohio State and Alabama.

Congrats to him! Alabama's a great team, and they only get better with him.
Did not see this coming. So much for staying close to home.
Not sure what this does with the Spartans pursuit of Boyd.
Central Valley wide receiver Robert Foster chooses Alabama

Central Valley wide receiver Robert Foster chose defending national champion Alabama over Pitt on Friday, giving the Crimson Tide a verbal commitment.
Foster, who caught 45 passes for 756 yards and eight touchdowns this season at the Class AAA school, is the 20th recruit on Alabama‘s verbal commitment list and only the second wide receiver, joining Raheem Falkins of New Orleans. Foster and Falkins are ranked as four-star prospects by Rivals.com.
Losing Foster, named to the Pennsylvania Sportswriters Class AAA all-state team, is a blow to Pitt‘s efforts to rebuild its roster with play-makers. Pitt only has one other wide receiver (South Fayette‘s Zach Challingsworth), no running backs and two four-stars (Dorian Johnson of Belle Vernon and Tra‘von Chapman of Kent, Ohio) among its 20 pledges.

For what it's worth
Surrounded by his friends and family -- and with his 6-year-old brother Dior Adams on his lap -- Foster thanked his friends, family and high school community before announcing his commitment to the Crimson Tide.
Speaking with reporters afterward, Foster cited the challenge of playing for Alabama and coach Nick Saban on a perennial title contender.
"Coach Saban told me I'm going to have to work, and that's one thing I like to do," Foster said. "I like to work for my starting position.

Is Saban up to his old tricks?
In fairness, Chryst has done a remarkable job recruiting the WPIAL. The Panthers beat ’Bama for Rushel Shell last year and went down to a photo finish for Foster.
That‘s why this doesn‘t feel like it‘s over yet, especially with rumors swirling about Saban taking over the Cleveland Browns.
