Former Missouri QB Praises Recruit For De-Committing From Tigers

This isn't the best look for Missouri's program.

Missouri's football program took a hit today.

The Tigers lost a commitment from their 2018 quarterback recruit, James Foster, a top-15 dual-threat QB out of Alabama.

Foster posted the following message on Twitter:

A former Missouri quarterback, Marvin Sanders, responded to him. "Best decision you have ever made," he said.

Zanders transferred from Missouri at the end of the 2016 season. He spent time as the Tigers' backup quarterback, playing in eight games during the 4-8 season. Zanders completed 10 of 12 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 198 yards and two touchdowns.

Foster has significant interest from several SEC programs, including LSU, which offered him a scholarship on Wednesday.
