Dismissed from Iowa State team amid legal investigation. Authorities told Des Moines Register in February that he no longer was the focus of any investigation. No charges were ever filed.

Per the Des Moines Register:

“I’m going to move on,” Foster said. “I’m distancing myself. I’m trying to get someplace warm ... have the family come and visit me someplace warm.”

Not surprising, he blocked a lot of shots in high school ... and he can put the ball on the floor and appears able to step out and hit a 3.

Highlights:

Huge addition to the roster and a much needed big. Hope all his legal troubles are behind him. Valuable lesson learned but assuming he was incorrectly identified, what a nightmare to have lived through

When does roster need to be finalized by? What holes do we still need to fill?

The shooting ability is the most critical part of his game. That second video, the second highlight on it is the pick and roll with a shot, which is going to be a critical part of our offense. We want bigs who can shoot and participate in the pick and roll. He and Cisse fit that profile. I wouldn't be surprised if they try and move Frank on as well so that they can bring in another player so they have 3 at the 5 in that same role.

Could use another shooting guard. Hope Bandoumel comes back but another gunner would help. Agree we need another PG as we need multiple guards who can handle the ball under pressure. Hoping Jalen Smith comes back confident and can be one of our gunners next year. Zhuric was terrific defensively and hopefully improves his ball handling and shooting. Williamson and Todorovic could provide more offense as well

Wouldn't the guy from Louisville count as a power forward?
