Ed Foley to sign with Jacksonville University 

By Jason Lieser

Ed Foley is no wingman.

He was at the center of Treasure Coast’s stellar linebacker corps the last two seasons and the Titans coaches call him as their best overall player.

But Foley has gone relatively unnoticed by major college football. Fellow linebacker Jeff Luc (6-1, 240, 4.65, No. 2 on The Big Board) was a national recruit and enrolled early at Florida State, and Deon Rogers (6-3, 205, 4.48, No. 12 on The Big Board) is committed to Georgia.

Foley did not receive a single football scholarship offer, but said he will sign with Jacksonville University on Wednesday.

“Everyone wants to go to the big schools, but I like the direction they’re going in,” he said.

Foley (5-11, 185, 4.55, No. 46 on The Big Board) had 103 tackles, including 25 for loss, for the Titans last season. He, Luc and Rogers were all-area selections.

Earlier in the week, Foley said he still was talking to Georgia Southern and several other small schools. He also had an interesting relationship with Florida Atlantic over the past two seasons.

“FAU said they were going to offer me my junior year and they still haven’t,” he said. “Then they invited two kids on my team to go on visits, but not me.”

FSU also offered him a preferred walk-on spot.

All commitments are non-binding. No player is locked into a school until he signs a national letter of intent. The first day seniors can sign is Feb. 3, national signing day.

Jacksonville had 10 local players on its roster last season:
