Meadville cornerback commits to Temple


Meadville High defensive back Artrel Foster recently gave a verbal commitment to play football at Temple.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder senior chose the Owls over scholarship offers from Eastern Michigan, Youngstown State and Duquesne.

“I just like the campus and the coaches at Temple,” said Foster, who attended Temple’s football camp on July 28. “I just like their program. I can tell that it is going to be successful.”

The 18-year-old, who is a standout two-way player in the Erie area, said he accepted the Owls' scholarship offer Saturday.

As a lockdown corner, Foster had three interceptions this season despite teams rarely throwing to his side. As a tailback, he rushed for 1,119 yards.

Temple is recruiting him to play cornerback or safety.
