    FM 101.1??? I don't think car radios had FM capability in the 60's, my parents had a 1970 98 Olds and it only had AM and no 8-track either...

    Chad Mike and Mike reminded of Larry, his brother Darryl and his other brother Darryl.

    Of course it doesn't matter now...…. but wasn't he a 6'5" four star point guard ? I hope he finds what he is looking for but I was looking forward to see him play at Gonzaga.....has he made any kind of statement ?

    Per Meehan, Greg's Dad & the new St. Joe's Coach were on the 76'ers staff together a while back.


    Make's a lot of sense now.

    And again, good luck Greg.

    was a 3-star recruit by Rivals & 247. Ranked 278th by 247, & outside the Top-150 for ESPN & Rivals.

    ESPN updated their ranking shortly after Greg committed to us, promoted to 4*, and ranked Top-20 for his position at #20.

    His Senior season (post commitment) was a slight disappointment as he lost his starting role, and averaged 7 ppg on the year.

    I like Greg Foster, wish him the best, and think he'll do well at St Joe's. Have a feeling it won't be at PG though. I don't see a lead guard at all. Doesn't have the right posture/style/touch/vision for that role; however, his attributes are superb. Good length, defense, explosive, and athletic. Had nice feel for the game, and can really move around the court well, seemed to rebound really well for his size/position, and this showed in HS and at Gonzaga. Also, has a penchant for getting to the rim once in the lane.

    Add 15lbs of muscle/size this transfer off-season and move to a slashing combo guard/wing hybrid, and his stock, effectiveness, and god given ability will shine through.

    As I've posted many times before, even before he stepped foot on campus, I see Greg as a wing, yet I've also heard he's dead-set on PG. Its like the clear-cut TE who wants to play QB in a way.

    I still feel Greg could have been an asset at Gonzaga, but by all accounts, wasn't really open to moving positions. I asked that direct question to a former player and was told he wanted to remain at PG.

    I respect it as its his decision and future, yet when we check in 2 yrs and see how he's doing, I have a feeling he'll be playing off the ball as a really good slasher with above average handles.
