Shan Foster Might As Well Start Packing For Europe…

…because according to ESPN’s draft rankings for amateur shooting guards, Mr. Foster has no shot at being drafted.

In the interest of full disclosure, I go to Vanderbilt and am therefore more than slightly biased towards this guy. But come on. He’s averaging 20.6 PPG, 1.7 APG, and 5.1 RPG in the SEC. He’s also shooting 53% from the field, and an obscene 51% from long-distance, so he’s definitely got the numbers. Foster is also 6’6, energetic, and athletic. In other words, he’s not someone like Joe Forte or JJ Redick, who clearly had questions about how their abilities (height, ball-handling, athleticism, etc.) would translate to the next level.

Again, perhaps this is homerism, but you’d have a hard time convincing me that Jon Scheyer, Vasily Zavoruev, Austin Freeman, Nolan Smith, and Milenko Tepic all have a better chance at getting drafted than Shan Foster.

    who ever says Shan Foster will not get drafted is embarrassing themselves.
