I think he said he wants to play somewhere “warmer than Iowa”.  I read that quote somewhere earlier today....I'll see if I can find it.

I know few details, but charges were dropped.  I watched the entire interview with Foster and his parents. Sure appears he's going some place warm.  Maybe he wants his folks to be close.  Curious, what makes him a bum? 

It's one 20 minute press conference.  I thought he represented himself very well. 

They spoke about contacts in Tennessee.  Ha, maybe he's going to play for the Bruins of Belmont.

I know people who know the kid and his father.  They told me that a girl went to a party that Foster did not attend.  The girl, according to my friends, came on to Foster. He thought she liked him.  My friends said he may have been dumb, but he's no criminal.  Good family, small town kid under the lights.  I'd take him in a New York minute.  Not likely to get him though.

Moving forward.....

Rumor I heard is once the facts came out, the new coach up there tried to reengage dialogue but there is just no way he going back up to Ames. I don't blame him. What a crock that this young man had is career and life put on hold for nothing. What a joke. I hope (& pray) he ends up at Drake!

Interesting that Foster mentions that he thinks he would have been kicked off the team even without the police investigation. Apparently, he was late (or missed) team meetings and tutorial sessions.

+1

He made that clear.  Plus, he will not be returning to Ames for school.  However, his family and lawyer also expressed, there is some "unfinished" business with the University.

Heard he told the coach "You need me more than I need you."  A new coach can't start building a team with someone with that attitude and had to dismiss him.  I am curious what the unfinished business is all about.

Here’s what I’ve seen of the kid. Has some talent, but doesn’t seem very engaged,doesn’t play with much physicality. I’m not saying anything about his other situation. Seems like ISU has handled it very poorly. I’m talking strictly from a bball standpoint. I don’t think he loves the game. Just my opinion. Should not have called him a bum. Bad on my part.

My friends( I do have some) who know said the exact same thing.  They said that the kid that went to UNI...Cole Henry I think is his name...played harder and actually contributed more on the high school team.  Foster had more upside.

Moving forward.....

I'm guessing wherever he is going has been selected a long time ago and it is someplace down south. The guys on KXNO this morning were all saying he should go to Drake.

Just because he is 7 feet tall doesn't mean we need him in a Drake uniform.
Yeah, we have a penchant for getting dudes with foot problems, but I think we can pass on this dude with a foot problem.

First off we would need a scholarship to give, next issue with me is the alleged skipping practices and meetings. Was this before or after the incident? Drake did want to recruit talented Iowa guys and if he passes the recruiting  process paring him and Tucker would be awesome.

I believe the alleged incident happened in September or October of 2020, so it was before he even played a single game for Iowa State and while Prohm was still there. It just didn't become known until almost a year later. 

But yeah, as Dub linked. Literally zero percent chance of us being in play here.

Better chance of B. Estrella miraculously finding more eligibility.
