2014 (Redshirt) Jerald Foster redshirted during his first year at Nebraska.
Before Nebraska (Lincoln Southeast) Foster was one of three in-state signees in Nebraska's 2014 recruiting class. The 6-3, 310-pound Foster was a dominant two-way player for Coach Ryan Gottula at Southeast the past three seasons. As a senior, Foster earned first-team All-Nebraska honors from the Omaha World-Herald and first-team Super State accolades from the Lincoln Journal Star, as he helped the Knights to a Class A state playoff appearance. Foster was a dominant blocker on offense, while recording 53 tackles, including three sacks from his defensive line spot. Foster was also a first-team All-Nebraska and first-team Super State pick as a junior when he helped Southeast to a 9-2 record and trip to the Class A quarterfinals. Foster first starred for the Knights in 2011, when he earned first-team Super State honors as a sophomore offensive lineman. His dominant effort on the offensive line helped Southeast to the Class A state championship and a 12-1 record. Foster is regarded as the top prospect in the state of Nebraska by Rivals.com, and is ranked as one of the nation's top 25 guards in the nation by Rivals.com, ESPN and Scout.com. Foster was one of the nation's most sought-after offensive line prospects. He committed to Nebraska last June and only visited the Huskers, but had offers from a number of schools, including Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Iowa State, Missouri, UCLA, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest. D.J's older brother, Trey, will be a sophomore tight end for the Huskers in 2014. Foster is the son of Jesse and Charlie Foster, and he was born on Sept. 14, 1995.
