Michael Foster: Five-star prospect to sign with G League Ignite for 2021-22 season

The G League Ignite have made their first splash in the high school class of 2021.

2021 McDonald's All-American and No. 7-ranked prospect Michael Foster has announced that he will forgo his college eligibility and sign with the Ignite for the 2021-22 season.

As a five-star recruit, Foster had offers from more than a handful of the top schools in the country, including Baylor, Florida, Florida State, Kansas, Michigan and Ohio State, to name a few.

The 6-foot-8, 215-pound power forward becomes the first player from the 2021 class to join the G League Ignite, a development program coming off of its inaugural season where they landed two top-five prospects in Jalen Green and Jonathan Kuminga.

"I'm super ready to learn the NBA game and train like an NBA player from NBA guys while playing for NBA G League Ignite," Foster stated, according to the release issued by the G League.

Foster spent his last two high school seasons at Hillcrest Prep in Phoenix, where he averaged 32.2 points and 18.4 rebounds as a senior and 26.3 points, 13.4 rebounds and 6.1 blocks as a junior.

In his first two high school seasons, Foster led Washington High School of Information Technology in his native city of Milwaukee to back-to-back Division 2 state runner-up finishes. He also earned All-State and All-Area First Team honors as a sophomore.
