One of the top basketball prospects in the state of Iowa regardless of class is 2020 forward Xavier Foster of Oskaloosa. He's a 6-foot-10 prospect that has already collected offers from the in-state programs Iowa and Iowa State.
The offer from Iowa was a big one for Foster who also was able to take in a Hawkeye practice.
"It was great to get an offer from Iowa already," Foster said. "I visited them for a practice."
He didn't know where to start with his positive remarks about the Hawkeyes and his excitement about the program and school. Foster also shared his strong feelings for head coach Fran McCaffery.
"I think that Fran is an amazing coach," Foster noted. "I love the way they play and the players that are on the team are kids that I would love to play like. I really enjoy the way he likes to play ball inside and out with his bigs."
Foster grew up a fan of Iowa. That could put the Hawkeyes in the driver's seat early on but it won't be a quick decision.
"I don't know yet about a decision timeline," he pointed out. "I want to keep my options open."
