On rivals.com it says that Duke has offered Roscoe Smith. Smith says he has the Blue Devils high on his list.
He's been offered.
Don't ask me why, but my mother is making me Tweet. Says it will be good for my career. So, follow my ramblings, mostly on the film industry, @TVFilmTalk
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.
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.
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.
It's nice to have more than one basket for our eggs. Good recruiting move.
This means Duke has offered eight players now
Considering and Offered:
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

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.
