JUCO Transfer Devin Foster to Join Penn State Hoops

Less than a week after freshman point guard Graham Woodward announced his transfer from the Penn State basketball team, the Nittany Lions received a commitment from junior college transfer guard Devin Foster, according to Brad Winton of JucoRecruiting.com.

Foster, a Dayton, Ohio product from Jefferson High School, will not have to sit out a year before being eligible to play. He’ll be active next year, and will have two seasons of eligibility.

Foster was named a 2nd team JUCO All-American at Vincennes University, and helped the Trailblazers finish third in the 2014 NJCAA Division I Tournament. Foster was named to the All-Tournament team. He played in 37 games last season, averaging 12.2 points a game, and shot an impressive 50% from the field and 39% from behind the arc. He also averaged three rebounds and dished out five assists per matchup.

“Devin is a strong combo guard, and also a lefty,” said Vincennes coach Brian Davis. “He’s an athletic guard that can knock down the three or attack the rim. He played mostly the point down the stretch for us and led us to a 34-3 record.”

Foster will join fellow incoming guards Shep Garner and Isaiah Washington for the 2014-2015 season. With D.J. Newbill around for a final year, and John Johnson and Geno Thorpe returning, the Nittany Lions will have significant depth in the backcourt.
