Foster Sets Four Visits

Shane Foster has a plan. "I'll probably decide toward the end of October and will sign in November," Foster said.

The New Orleans Jazz standout is down to six schools and has set up official visits with four of them. Vanderbilt, Mississippi State, Kansas, Marquette, LSU and Southern Miss comprise the list.

The Commodores are up first and they host him on Sept. 6. LSU goes next and their trip is Sept. 20. Southern Miss didn't get an official visit date out of him but they'll have him on campus Sept. 25 for an unofficial.

October is going to be hectic as well for Shane. He's at Mississippi State on the 11th and then to Kansas for Midnight Madness.

Now, Marquette is absent from the list of official visits. Foster said that he intends to take the trip there but has been unable to get the date worked out.

With a diverse list of conferences and areas of the country, just what is he looking for in a program? "The level of education [is important], the academic part of it as well as early playing time; chemistry amongst the players and how well I cope with the coach."

"Not too much of Bobby Knight guy but somebody who respects hard work and puts the best guys on the floor and is decided to winning but at the same time having fun and enjoying the game of basketball."

There you have it. Another Top 100 player with a good plan of attack.

"Actually, I've narrowed my schools down so all I have let to do is take some visits and pick a school."
