Point guard from Georgia signs with Arkansas State

JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas State has announced the signing of a community college point guard who played high school basketball in Georgia.

C.J. Foster of Lilburn, Georgia, played last year at Roane State Community College in Tennessee. He will have three seasons of eligibility with the Red Wolves.

Foster is 6-3. He averaged nearly 14 points per game last year at Roane State, hitting 47 percent from the floor and 77 percent from the free-throw line. He started in 16 of his team's 22 games.

At Berkmar High School in Lilburn, he averaged 12 points per game and led his team to consecutive Elite Eight appearances.

He intends to major in chemistry at Arkansas State.

The Red Wolves finished each of the last two years with 19 victories.
