Thread: Roscoe Smith

    Roscoe Smith

    On rivals.com it says that Duke has offered Roscoe Smith. Smith says he has the Blue Devils high on his list.

    He lists Duke, Florida, Georgetown, UCONN, and Maryland as his top 5. Interesting that UNC is no longer in the picture. Plans on making a trip to Duke in August.

    And ummm, many times Rivals and Scout are not accurate or up to date on who's been offered and who hasn't. I'm saying he definetly has been.

    It seems that Roscoe has been waiting for this offer for a long time. Maybe he could commit to Duke in August during his visit but who knows. This is great news though because Roscoe is a very good player but I'm surpired Duke didn't offer Dominque Ferguson instead of Smith but both are great players so you can't go wrong with either one. Roscoe is very happy to be offered by Duke seeing on the link I posted before that Duke is high on his list.

    Can you provide a link to a source? How do we know that you know he has definitely been offered a scholarship?

    And you are more accurate/credible than Rivals and/or Scout?

    I'd say so.

    1. Rivals and Scout are not always accurate.
    2. I'd vouch for Razzy

    Additionally, some of the regulars are being a little sarcastic and unkind here. No need for this.

    Nope. Sure can't. Guess you'll have to take my word for it. Next time I'll be sure to not type in a hurry before leaving work so all words are spelled correctly. I sure would hate to misspell a word on here again.

    Like houstondukie, I was just having fun so I've no problem saying sorry if you really took offense. I'll take your word on the offer. It would be nice to see Roscoe Smith accept sooner rather than later.

    None at all. Just havin some fun. Have to say I'm loving the wide net recruiting approach K has adjusted to. 2010 is going to be a monster class.

    Roscoe Smith played at a high school in Baltimore, and is transferring to Oak Hill this year. Based on what I read, he sounds like a versatile player and potentially an outstanding defender.

    Perhaps 3 more (a PG, Barnes, and another front court player?) to add to the 3 already commited for 2010? And Seth Curry, too. Nice.

    Proper spelling or not, please post a link to a source whenever it does become available. If you're close or even local to the situation, then you'll probably be aware of the news (offers, impressions of official visits, signings) before many of us are. Fair enough?

    To me, high school recruiting has become the most important part of college basketball, even as it remains the least interesting part. There's a lot of misinformation out there, and people (even here) who go nuts at some carefully selected and edited YouTube coverage. The downside of having a savior mentality, I suppose.

    Welcome to the board. In any given thread, you can see how many posts a contributing member has ever made. It's sort of an unofficial measure of how jaded they may be when it comes to recruiting hype.

    Have also seen stories indicating Duke is additionally interested in:

    Ray McCallum -- PG from Detroit area (Shane's old school)
    Joe Jackson -- PG from Memphis area (friend of Elliot's; lean to Memphis?)
    Dominique Ferguson---forward from Indianapolis

    So we might not be done looking and evaluating

    Sources are like sausages: many of the good ones don't have links.

    This all makes sense. If there was ever a year to have such a wide net for Duke, 2010 is it. How many open scholarships will we have? 6-7? Playing time definitely won't be a concern for any of these guys, they will basically be the future of the program. Andre Dawkins should be on the phone sealing the deal with them! It should be a good summer and fall for us.

    Go Duke!
