Robert Foster to decide Saturday: Alabama or Pitt?

Robert Foster, one of the top receiver recruits in the country, will make his college choice Saturday between Alabama and Pitt.

According to his coach, there will be plenty of drama:

"I don't think anybody has an idea of what he's going to do," Lyons said. "I'm not sure he has an idea."

Foster hasn't given any indication of where he'll commit, Lyons said. He previously narrowed his choices to Alabama and Pitt.

Since his recruitment began, Foster hasn't been looking for a coach to tell him how he fits in or that he could play right away. But he wants a school that reminds him of Central Valley.

"He wants that family atmosphere and a closeness in the community," Lyons said. "He likes being a high school student and a high school athlete. There is a comfortableness for him at Central Valley. When he finds the same feeling at a school, that's going to the deciding factor. I'm sure that's what he's been mulling over for the past two to three weeks."

The choice is expected to be Pitt.
