Foster Wonders is arguably the mitten’s best kept secret. Wonders attends Iron Mountain High School in the upper peninsula. He is 6’4 as a freshman, which means there is likely at least a couple of more inches bound to come within the next few years to Wonders’ frame. Wonders had an early season stress fracture in his foot, but since then the freshman wing has been on a tear averaging 20 points per contest. The Iron Mountain freshman is extremely versatile; he can score from inside and outside, he has strong court vision, and he is a good rebounder. His long wing span also helps him out a bit on defense too. Get to know him better with this Q&A below:
