Penn State Basketball: Devin Foster Tabs Nittany Lions
Pat Chambers and his staff bounced back from the transfer of freshman guard Graham Woodward with the addition of junior college transfer guard Devin Foster this weekend.
Foster committed to Penn State following his visit this past weekend during the annual Blue White game and could be seen on the sideline with Chambers prior to the game.
The addition of Foster to the roster is particularly important since it gives Penn State an experienced pure point guard after the departure of Tim Frazier following his fifth and final year at Penn State.
While the Nittany Lions will return a number of guards for the 2014 season, Foster is the best suited for the point. Senior guard DJ Newbill's natural position is on the wing. Penn State will add two more freshman guards this season in addition to the return of John Johnson and Geno Thorpe. Incoming freshman guard Shep Garner may see some minutes at the point but the exact rotation is far from set at this point.
While at Vincennes (Indiana) Foster was an efficient point man while also shooting a solid 40-percent clip from beyond the arc.
Penn State has a single scholarship remaining for the upcoming season. Chambers and his assistants will continue to evaluate their options but with the addition of Foster the biggest need of the offseason has been filled.
