Friendship with Michigan Commit Could Bring 4-star TE Isaiah Foskey to Wolverines

Isaiah Foskey and Giles Jackson became friends in fourth grade through playing on the same football team.

Now, both are seniors in high school with college football on the horizon.

Jackson, an Oakley (Calif.) Freedom 2019 four-star all-purpose back, committed to join the Wolverines on Sept. 9, 2018.

Foskey could be next from California to join coach Jim Harbaugh’s group in Ann Arbor.

And the Concord (Calif.) De La Salle 2019 four-star tight end’s relationship with Jackson could be a key factor in tipping the scales of his recruitment toward Michigan.

When the two were younger, they had no intentions of playing on the same team in college. Now, it’s extremely possible for the friends.

At 6-foot-5, 233 pounds, Foskey locks in upon stepping on the gridiron. Off the field, he’s a different person – a goofball, as Jackson described him.

“He’s just fun to be around,” Jackson explained. “He’s mostly serious all the time, but when he opens up he’s funny.”

Foskey has offers from 26 schools, but he has narrowed his list down to five programs. His primary recruiters from Michigan are running backs coach Jay Harbaugh and tight ends coach Sherrone Moore.

The tight end plans to take an official visit to see the Wolverines once the 2018 season is over for De La Salle High School.

“He likes Michigan a lot and all the coaches,” Jackson said. “I tell him they have great academics which I know he is looking for. We could have the opportunity to play together again.”

Jackson is the primary recruit aiming to bring Foskey to Michigan, but Reno (Nev.) Damonte Ranch 2019 four-star pro-style quarterback Cade McNamara is making an effort as well.

McNamara committed to Michigan on March 16, 2018, after decommitting from Notre Dame, a school Foskey is also considering.

Foskey is ranked No. 172 in the 2019 class, No. 5 at tight end and No. 23 in the state of California, according to 247Sports Composite.
