Elite 14 spotlight: Marcus Foster

WICHITA FALLS, Texas -- The brainchild of Wichita Heights (Texas) Hirschi head coach Donald Hedge, the Elite 14 took place Saturday.
The series of state sanctioned scrimmages featured loads of North Texas, Oklahoma and even some Kansas talent.
With plenty of talent in town, though, it was a local product who had as big a day as any.
Junior shooting guard Marcus Foster of Hirschi, was outstanding all day. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard hit from deep, attacked the rim and played with intensity.
"I'm a shooter, I can knock open shots down and create my own shot," Foster told "I'd like to work on my ball handling. But, I play strong, physicial and I like to get up on defense."
Because of his physicality, Foster is also a very good rebounder for his size and position and gets plenty of effort buckets. But, it's his skill that allows him to do most of his damage and he's looking to expand his game to be able to play more at the one if needed.
"I try to be a combo so I can be a little bit of both the one and the two," said the three-star prospect. "I like to play at the two though. Colleges want me to play at the two mostly, but some say I could play some at the one."
Already, Foster has offers from Arizona State, Oklahoma, North Texas, Creighton and Houston to go with interest from Baylor and SMU among others.
While he could end his recruitment right now if he wanted to, Foster will take his time and explore his options.
"I want to take my time and make sure that I make the right decision," says Foster of a decision. "I'm not in any kind of hurry."
When Foster does decide to commit, he'll focus in on most of the things that one would expect.
"I'm looking for a coach that can be my friend," said Foster. "I want him to be able to get after me when I need it though. Of course, the atmosphere of the college and the other people will be important too."
