ESPN No. 37 ranked high school junior shooting guard Tyler Foster has decommitted from Georgetown.
The 6-5 Maryland native out of South Kent School (CT) averaged 14 points and 4.5 rebounds on the Under Armour Association circuit as a sophomore with Baltimore’s Finest.
“He always loved Georgetown,” his father Robert Foster told the Baltimore Sun when his son committed to the Hoyas last year. “He’s been a big Georgetown fan, a big Allen Iverson fan, so naturally he gravitated toward Georgetown early on. It was too good to be true for him.”
“He was always kind of set in his heart on Georgetown,” his father added. “Once he took the visit there, he fell in love with the campus, coach Thompson, the guys and how they do things.”
Now Foster is a Hoya no more and is looking for a new college home.
He also had heavy interest from VCU before picking Georgetown.
According to Scout.com, whoever lands Foster will be getting a very talented player.
“Tyler Foster is an aggressive wing scorer with good size for the shooting guard position,” reads Scout’s analysis. “His mentality is score and that’s what he does best. He’s a capable long-range shooter [and] he’s at best attacking the basket, getting to the rim and making plays in transition.”
