The Zags secured another guard for the 2018 recruiting class after Greg Foster announced his intention to play for Gonzaga, according to Scout.com. Foster is a three-star, 6’7 guard out of Las Vegas.

Most importantly, Foster picked Gonzaga over Saint Mary’s. We will let that basically stand as its own sentence.

Foster’s father, also named Greg, spent 13 years in the NBA and is an assistant coach with Milwaukee. That pedigree allowed the younger Foster to share a practice court with Giannis Antetokoumpo, Jabari Parker, Malcolm Brogdon, and others. Foster spent the first three years of high school in Milwaukee before moving out to Las Vegas to finish his prep career.

Outside of being a really big guard, he will help usher in the next round of the Gonzaga guards after Silas Melson and Josh Perkins depart. Melson graduates this year, and Perkins graduates after the 2018-19 season. The Zags will have Zach Norvell and Jesse Wade, each with two years of experience, and Joel Ayayi (either one year or two year depending on redshirt possibilities this season).

There will be room for Foster to contribute, but with Perkins still manning the starting point spot, there will also be room for him to take his time with the program. Either way, Foster’s size will be a new one for the Zags. The Zags have enjoyed some large guards as of late, and that definitively helps compete with the size of bigger guards during the NCAA Tournament.
