Gonzaga Gets No. 19 Sr SG Greg Foster

ESPN No. 19 ranked high school senior shooting guard Greg Foster Jr. has committed to Gonzaga.

 

The 6-5 combo guard averaged a team-leading 14.9 points last season for Homestead HS (Mequon, WI), when he was named to the All-North Shore Conference Second Team.

 

This summer, Foster ran with Playground Elite in the Nike EYBL.

 

“[Gonzaga] essentially told him if you are competitive, come in here and compete and you’re the point guard of our future,” Foster’s Portland Basketball Club coach Mike Plank told Scout. “He’s a big guard. He’s really athletic and has a really good feel.”

 

After playing at Homestead last season, Foster has transferred to Ed W. Clark High School (Las Vegas, NV) for his senior year.

 

Ed W. Clark, which lost to powerhouse Bishop Gorman in the Class 4A state championship game last year, features No. 44 Sr SG Trey Woodbury (UNLV) and No. 49 Jr Jalen Hill (UCLA)

 

“In basketball terms, he’s super unselfish so he fits in good with the team,” Woodbury told the Journal Sentinel of Foster. “This team is super unselfish. We all pass. And he’s a great point guard to fit in with that.”

 

His father, Greg Foster Sr., a 6-11 center who played 13 seasons in the NBA, said his son benefited from being around at practices and during games.

 

“To be able to interact with (NBA players) and watch how they go about their business on a day to day basis, it’s been valuable (in his development),” Foster Sr. said.

 

The Zags beat out fellow West Coast Conference team Saint Mary’s to land Foster.

 

At Gonzaga, Foster will join fellow 2018 recruit No. 15 C and Serbia native Filip Petrusev.
