Because of lack of playing time caused by a previous injury he had. Duh why not lol.
He's apparently having surgery, so not fake news. Seems the team has had a lot of serious injuries the last few years reducing playing time. Hopefully Foster comes back strong. Let's be clear, the main performance issues with the ISU MBB team is NOT a player issue.

You are comparing Wesley Johnson, who played an entire season with an injury, to Xavier Foster, who is having surgery to fix an injury and will miss the rest of the season.

Would seem Foster's injury is being handled in the exact OPPOSITE manner to Johnson's. Other than that, great comparison.

I guess I would wonder why this didn't get done after his senior year. I guess they thought it would heal and never did. Bummer, really wanted to see him play more.

not sure how some people are conflating Xavier's injury with the coach and perceived issues...he's a young guy with a life ahead of him that may or may not include basketball...it would seem the ONLY thing anyone with compassion could say is that "we wish you luck and hope to see you next year." Plenty of Prohm threads if you want to spout off on him.

I think Prohm handled this well. I’m sure glad he wasn’t handling it like McDermott handled Wes Johnson, questioning his manhood etc.

But if you're not 110% against the Bad Man all the time and very loud about that then you're basically supporting him!

Let's hope he doesn't transfer, because it most likely will be EIU.
I don't think so. Not saying for sure he'll be back, but even if he goes I don't think he ends up there. McCaffrey might be winning now, but he still isn't putting kids in the league.

It is silly to conclude he will transfer. It is reasonable to consider this could increase those chances.
I actually think this might reduce his options, not increase them.

He just went from "high 4* 7' big man prospect" to "big man with no history of production and an injury history of something known to end the career or reduce the effectiveness of such players."

If he were to transfer, he is no longer a prized recruit. He is a big risk. That might limit those hypothetical options.

Hopefully he gets healthy and is ready in 21-22 no matter who is at the helm for Iowa State.

What's awful is, this doesn't impact our season one bit. He was going to sit behind Solo and George anyway. I wouldn't blame him for leaving but I think this will make it tougher for him to get looks from the type of programs he would be interested in. He's got baggage now. He's now the only fr I would expect to be back next year.

But he is still 7’
