Erit is the 3sg. future.

(imperfect) (perfect)

eram fui
erai fus,i
era fu
eram furãm
erat,i furãt,i
erau furã

<fost> is the past participle, newly created on the perfect stem fu- and
following the model of ponere / pos(i)tu. Latin didn't have a past passive
participle of the verb <esse> (only a future ptc. <futu:rus>), and the Romance
languages have created new forms to express this: Spa/Port. sido < seditu "sat",
Fra/Occ/Cat/Ita été, estat, stato < sta:tu "stood", Romanian fost, Aromanian
