    I know this kid comes from a great family but ...... "I will have surgery on my foot and I plan to continue my basketball career at the professional level after this year." And this young man actually thinks he has a shot, as injury-prone as he's been? Dude expects to run up and down the court, plant, move, etc. with a chronically bad foot? I'm all for supporting goals and ideas, but perhaps a little bit of a reality check is in order here.

    I feel bad for Foster he is a good defensive player and a great person. This young Utah team could have used him both on the court and his leadership and maturity off the court.

    I wish him the best in the future wherever that may take him.

    @bluto - this is not the article to take a cheap shot. Grow up.

    Go Utes!

    I feel badly for this kid. That is a terrible way to have your career end. These types of foot problems are pretty common in extremely tall people, there is just a lot of stress put on their feet. Good luck David, I hope you are able to get healthy enough for a shot at a pro career.

    Did it ever start?
    Poor kid...
    Another talented kid gone to waste at the J.C. program on the Hill.
    And I don't mean Westminster.
