Top Colorado Basketball Prospect Looking at Visit to Wyoming

Kenny Foster, a highly-regarded shooting guard from Smoky Hill High School in Aurora, Co., is expected to make a visit to the University of Wyoming the weekend of Sept. 1.

That is the same weekend of the University of Wyoming Hall of Fame Banquet, and the Cowboys football game with Washington State. 

The 6-foot-5 Foster was slowed in mid-season last school year by a sprained left knee, but he still averaged 17 points, 3.7 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game,

He was one of three juniors on the first two teams of the Colorado High School Activities Association Class 5 All-State team, as well as a first-team All-Centennial League selection. Other juniors on the All-State team were shooting forward Ronnie De Gray III of Chapparal High School, a first-team selection, and forward Dayne Prim of Grandview, a second-team selection.

With the return of Larry Shyatt as the head coach, the Cowboys reemphasized recruiting in Colorado, and that has continued since Allen Edwards, an assistant on Shyatt's staff, took over as the head coach when Shyatt resigned, and became an assistant coach the the NBA Dallas Mavericks.

Wyoming's current roster includes Austin Mueller of from Highlands Ranch, Thunder Ridge High School, and Hunter Maldanado, Colorado Springs, Vista Ridge High School. Last year's senior class included Alan Herndon of Colorado Springs, Widfield High School, and Hayden Dalton of Parker, Chaparral High School.
