    JeKel Foster a Buckeye

    Junior-college prospect chooses OSU, coach says
    Thursday, April 15, 2004

    Junior-college guard Je’Kel Foster decided yesterday to play basketball for Ohio State, but as of last night he had not signed a binding letter of intent with the Buckeyes, his coach said.

    Foster, a 6-foot-2 guard from Chipola College in Marianna, Fla., chose Ohio State over Illinois State. They were the only schools he visited after he was scouted by OSU coaches at the National Junior College Athletic Association Tournament in March in Hutchinson, Kan.

    Foster canceled a visit to Minnesota yesterday after making his decision.

    Chipola coach Chris Jans refused to confirm Foster’s commitment last night. But Illinois State coach Porter Moser told a reporter from The Pantagraph in Bloomington, Ill., that Jans informed him yesterday afternoon that Foster had chosen Ohio State.

    Jans said last night that he did not know when Foster would sign. Foster could not be reached. OSU coach Jim O’Brien can not comment on the player until he has received the letter of intent.

    With Foster in the fold, Ohio State has one scholarship left to offer during the spring signing period, which began yesterday and ends May 19. The Buckeyes have offered it to 6-5 Malik Hairston of Renaissance High School in Detroit.

    Illinois State probably would have beaten us last year. Very sad.

    He is of the "Brian Brown, Ricardo Billings" Nature. Hopefully we hit the jackpot. Sometimes these guy's are better pics than bigtime recruts and other times they are juco for good reason.

    I wish I could say I felt all along that Je'Kel would turn into this type of scorer, but that would be a bold-faced lie. I am so pleasantly surprised to see that Je'Kel can be both a scorer and a distributor, combined with a great team leader. I just wish he had another year on campus...
