When Eric Foreman decided to transfer to Tarleton for his final year of collegiate eligibility, Texans Head Coach Sam McElroy knew the former Class 2A high school star would be a valuable addition to the roster.
The only question - where to play the three-way standout from Corrigan Camden who transferred from Texas last fall.
Foreman, who started at linebacker for the Longhorns as a freshman, led Corrigan-Camden High School to the 2002 2A-Division I state title as a quarterback and defensive back. After his senior season in high school, Foreman was No. 33 on Rivals’ list of best recruits classified by position as athletes - a title reserved for versatile standouts who could play a number of different positions in college.
Foreman was first-team All-State selection at defensive back his senior season, and a second-team honoree at quarterback. He passed for 858 yards and 8 touchdowns, but was even more dangerous while on the run, accumulating 1,266 yards and 24 scores. Defensively, he made 39 stops, 3 interceptions and forced two fumbles. He also returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown.
