Marcus Foster, a second year guard from Kansas State, announced that he will be transferring to Creighton next year to play for Coach McDermott and the Bluejays. This is a big deal for Creighton. They do not have many point guards at their disposal, especially after losing Austin Chatman this year. Maurice Watson, another transfer from Boston University, sat out the 2014-15 season but will play in the upcoming season as the likely starting point guard. Besides him though, the depth at the point guard position pretty much stops there. Tyler Clement played limited minutes, but he is not ready to lead the team at the point.
Foster will sit out the 2015-16 season, but will be eligible for two years after that. He will be a huge help to the Creighton basketball squad. Foster, the best player from Kansas State statistically, averaged 12.5 points and 1.9 assists in the 2014-15 season, leading the team in points scored per game and minutes per game.
Foster was dismissed from the Wildcats after violating team policies. This brings up questions of potential team violations at Creighton, a problem that has already arisen in James Milliken. However, due to the potential of Foster, Creighton has decided that the reward is greater than the risk.
