Athletic Wing Shane Foster

The 6-5 athlete from Louisiana, <b>Shane Foster</b>, was getting strong interest from programs across the country before July, but now two more schools on the opposite ends of the country are showing interest and have expanded his list...

Shane Foster, 6-5 SR SF, Kenner (Louisiana) Bonnabel, was getting recruited seriously by many high-major schools before July.

"I had been hearing from Kansas, Marquette, LSU and Vanderbilit before," Foster said. "And I had gotten some offers."

But while some prospects are narrowing their lists, Foster, as a result of his play this month, is expanding his. "I've now heard from UCLA and Boston College, too," he said. "Just really in the last two weeks, during the time off in the middle of July."

He said that most of the schools now on his list have offered scholarships.

Does he have a favorite? "No, not really. Vanderbilt and Marquette are probably recruiting me the hardest, and Kansas and LSU are doing a pretty good job, too."

Foster said he intends to take as many trips as possible and doesn't have a plan on when he'll commit. "I really don't have any idea. I want to see which schools I'm really serious about and take visits. I don't think I'll decide until November."

Foster said he has a 3.0 GPA and scored a passing 17 on the ACT.
