    You must not be familiar with that poster. He's the biggest trolling dipshit liar on our boards.

    You are entitled to your opinion, trolls like the one you mentioned shouldn't be. Defending him isn't a hill you want to die on. I think most of us are pretty realistic about Foster, I don't see anyone claiming him as a program changer. We want him but the program will be fine if he goes elsewhere.

    Just don't confuse him with the other guy with the very similar name who actually is a decent poster.

    Based on 247 ratings, XF would be the third-highest rated recruit of the Prohm era after Wigginton and Horton-Tucker. He would be our best post recruit since at least Georges Niang (slightly ahead of him on 247 right now). He looks like a system fit for what Prohm wants big men to do, and we are going to need a replacement for Michael Jacobson after this season. He would be fun to pair with Conditt as "twin towers." Program-changer? No, but big hit? Definitely.

    It would be nice to break Iowa and out-of-state schools' stranglehold on Iowa talent, too. I know the program has done fine with imports the past decade or so, but the state has a few good ones every now and then. I would appreciate landing a few of them.

    Would we survive and move on without? Yep. But he would be real nice to have.

    ^ This. I am a little surprised that the Rivals network Cyclone Report is still limping along.

    I have watched Foster play high school ball. He is smooth, athletic and about everything you would want. However, he didn't produce. I think it has to do with his coach not knowing how to coach him in high school. I saw a lot of potential. He is also pretty raw. I would honestly compare him a lot to George Conditt. LIke you can see he has it. He just has to figure it out. Defense will be his strength for the first few years until he get's his offensive game down and puts on some weight.

    Blaming Osky's coach seems weak. With Foster's dad on staff they're doing what the Foster family thinks is best for Xavier in my opinion.

    "George Conditt, but imagine Conditt came in 1-2 years further along in his development arc" would be a pretty good description of a reasonable hope for Xavier Foster.

    Osky coach is a nice guy. I don't think he is a good coach though. They should not have lost a game with him and Henry on that team. In 3A the only team that should have came close to beating them was Norwalk with Borne and Endres and some good supporting players.
