I cant find in the book where this could be an illegal screen. Or does it not matter that his foot is clearly out of bounds.
FED: a defender must be completely inbounds to take a charge. No such wording on screens -- but it is a proposal for next year.

NCAA: Screeners and defenders must be inbounds.

(The above paraphrased -- I recognize defenders can screen, etc.)
