Seton Academy senior basketball player Alex Foster has decommitted from Minnesota.
Seton coach Brandon Thomas told The Times on Tuesday that Foster will re-open his recruitment. Thomas said he will ask Minnesota today for his release from his letter of intent.
Foster signed with Minnesota in November, but Tubby Smith was fired and replaced by Richard Pitino, son of Louisville coach Rick Pitino.
Thomas said Foster took just one official visit, so he would have two left.
"He has no favorites at this point and is wide open," Thomas said. "He will take his time and select a school and coaching staff and style of play that best fits his need as a student-athlete."
