With his commitment, the Alberta pivot is looking forward to reuniting with several of his former Crusaders teammates.  Moreover, Foster has great expectations for the Huskies and is ecstatic to become part of the team.

“Saint Mary’s is a young team with an immense amount of talent; the team is going to steadily improve over the course of my career as the young talent matures under the experienced coaching at SMU,” expressed Foster of his commitment.  “Having a young team allows the opportunity of continuity by keeping the core of this team together for a long time and I’m expecting that in a couple of years we will be a strong contender for the national title.”

“The respect the coaches showed me and all their players on and off the field immediately inspired me to want to play for them. I look forward to getting to play with some of my old friends from high-school such as rick Lemoignan, Mandela Loggale, Omar Abdallah and the other ex-Austin O’Brien boys at SMU.”
