Rising sophomore guard Greg Foster Jr. will be transferring to St. Joseph’s University, according to Jeff Goodman.
St. Joe’s has landed Gonzaga freshman point guard Greg Foster, source told @Stadium. Will sit and have three left.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) June 17, 2019
Foster averaged just 0.7 points in 4.6 minutes per game last season for the Zags, and struggled to find playing time behind senior point guards Josh Perkins and Geno Crandall. When he was given the minutes, he showcased himself as a steady, pass-first point guard, notching five assists against North Dakota State in 20 minutes of play.
In light of Derryck Thornton choosing Boston College over Gonzaga, Foster’s departure is something that will be noticed, at the moment. The Zags backcourt doesn’t really feature a true point guard, and Foster’s vision would be the closest thing Gonzaga had to fill the spot. As it stands now, the backcourt of Joel Ayayi, Admon Gilder, Brock Ravet, and Corey Kispert are going to hold the ground right now.
Foster will sit out next year and have three remaining years of eligibility.
