Video: Complete Delvon Roe press conference
LAKEWOOD, Ohio - Michigan State pulled off a major recruiting coup on Tuesday when they received a commitment from the nation's No. 2 power forward, Lakewood St. Edward Delvon Roe.
Roe is ranked the No. 6 player in the class of 2008 by Rivals.com. He joins elite point guard Korie Lucious in the Michigan State Class of 2008.
Roe chose Michigan State over some of the nation's top basketball programs including, North Carolina, Kansas, and Ohio State. North Carolina finished second in the Roe sweepstakes.
Roe announced his decision Tuesday afternoon at his high school accompanied by a large contingent of family, friends, and teammates from St. Edward as well as his summer program King of the Court.
Roe has known about his decision for some time, but until last week he was unable to muster the nerve to tell Tar Heel coach Roy Williams.
Spartanmag.com was on hand for Roe's Tuesday press conference and filmed the entire event.
