BREAKING NEWS - Greg Foster Jr 6'4 2018 PG (Milwaukee, WI) was offered today by UTEP @trigonis30 @RonMFlores @streetcrdsports @ReggieRankin— Chad Groth (@areacodes) August 13, 2015
We all know who Foster Sr. is, as in former UTEP legend, and UTEP assistant coach THE Greg Foster who is currently on the Milwaukee Bucks staff as an assistant.
Foster Jr. is heading into his sophomore year of high school at Homestead High School in Milwaukee. He attended Lincoln Middle School in El Paso while his father was on Tim Floyd's staff, and has grown from 5'8 as an eighth grader, to now standing 6'4.
The talented combo guard has also been offered by Wisconsin-Milwaukee. According to the Instagram video below he was working with his dad, and current UTEP point guard Dominic Artis in the Don Haskins Center recently.
Both Artis and Foster Sr. are from the Bay Area in California for what its worth.
Of course the elder Foster was the 1990 WAC Tournament MVP for UTEP and played under Don Haskins for two seasons after transferring from UCLA. Foster went on to have a 13-year NBA career and won a ring with the Lakers in 2001, and reached the NBA Finals twice with the Utah Jazz.
As of right now, Verbal Commits has Foster Jr. as a composite two-star prospect, but with three years of high school left for him, it will be interesting to see how Foster Jr. continues to grow and develop, as well as how high his recruiting stock can grow.
