Foster also hinted on Tuesday that he would return to school via an Instagram post:
Foster, a junior, was excellent in his first season with the Bluejays in 2016-17, averaging 18.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.4 points. He was named a first-team All-Big East selection and paired with Justin Patton to give the Bluejays an excellent inside-outside pairing.
Returning to school was likely the wise choice for Foster. While Jonathan Wasserman of Bleacher Report had Patton at No. 12 overall on his most recent NBA draft big board, Foster didn't even make Wasserman's top 50. Similarly, DraftExpress didn't project Foster to get drafted in its most recent two-round mock.
And Foster acknowledged after the team's season ended that he would have to carefully weigh his options.
"With the team I have, I love these guys to death," he said, perI've been just going hard for them and trying to get us as deep in the tournament as we can, and accomplish more and more. But I know that's something I'm going to have to talk to my family about. It's going to a family decision."
Based on his current draft projections, that decision appears to be the right one.
