Nice! Congrats to Foote. And that's one more selling point for recruiting!
If you google "late bloomer" Jeff Foote's name pops up. Seriously, this guy has grown so much as a basketball player. I remember when he first came to Cornell people didn't even believe he belonged on the team. He wasn't even really recruited out of high school. This just shows people where hard work can get you.

So happy for him. Hope he sticks around for awhile.
Can't wait to one day hear, "At center, at 7 feet, from Cornell, Jeffff Foooooote". Congrats Foote.
Unless I am missing someone, I think Foote will be the first person who attended Cornell to play - not merely be drafted - in the NBA, since Nat Militzok played for the Knicks in 1946-47. This is a remarkable accomplishment and I am PROUD !!!
Congrats and best wishes to Foote. Let's hope he gets into a game and show that he belongs in the NBA like Lin has demonstrated. These 10 day contracts are brutal for the players (and a bit unfair): http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/28/sports/basketball/the-10-day-nba-contract-a-tiny-window-closes-quickly.html?scp=1&sq=ten%20day%20contract&st=cseThe Hornets have nothing to lose by giving Foote a chance to play.
Great story. A huge accomplishment for Jeff Foote - from virtual anonymity at St. Bonaventure to the NBA, via a great Cornell team, in just a few years. Congratulations Jeff Foote! All of us who bleed Cornell Red are incredibly proud of you. Phil Alkon '55.
With Lin's success and Foote now getting called up, you've got to wonder whether Wittman regrets giving up so soon. He was better than both of them.
Better focus, Foote -- Hornets got rid of their last center after 10 days. You know it's brutal out there.
I am anxiously awaiting Foote and will be watching every minute. I am confident that he will do great. Hard work and patience definitely pays off.
Foote knows he just has to treat every game in the next few days like a championship game. Clear focus, zero anxiety, complete toughness. Good luck.
He is one of the reasons why Lin became an underdog because he didn't shine during Foote's era!Reminisce our glory days here through these championship videos.2008 Ivy League ChampionshipPart 1:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UlJb5MVwykPart 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOpaGpYvis02009 Ivy League ChampionshipPart 1:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRY0JXNtuFoPart 2:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4OjjEd6hI4
