Clemson adds Illinois State forward Foster to its men’s basketball team.

Clemson has signed Illinois State forward Myles Foster to its men’s basketball roster for the upcoming season.

Coach Brad Brownell announced the addition of the 6-foot-7 forward on Tuesday. Last season, Foster was Illinois State’s second-leading scorer, averaging 12.4 points per game, and led the team with eight rebounds per game.

Foster, originally from Brooklyn, New York, played his first three seasons at Monmouth before transferring to Illinois State last season. He has one year of eligibility remaining.

“Myles is coming off a really good year at Illinois State and provides frontcourt depth to our team,” Brownell said. “He is a crafty, low-post scorer who is physical, rebounds well, and fits our offensive system perfectly.”

The Tigers need frontcourt depth after losing 6-11 starter PJ Hall and reserves 6-10 Jack Clark and 6-8 RJ Godfrey from a team that advanced to the NCAA’s Elite Eight.

In other news, West Virginia added 6-foot guard Joseph Yesufu, who played six games at Washington State last season before a hip injury. Yesufu previously played two seasons each at Kansas and Drake under current West Virginia coach Darian DeVries. Yesufu has appeared in 119 career games.

West Virginia, which lost a school-record 23 games last season under interim coach Josh Eilert, is undergoing a roster overhaul under DeVries.

Additionally, Grand Canyon forward Tyon Grant-Foster announced he is returning for another season. The 6-7 senior led the Antelopes in scoring with 20.1 points per game and averaged 6.1 rebounds after transferring from DePaul. Grant-Foster helped lead Grand Canyon to the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season.
