Just days after making an unofficial visit to Duke, Josh McRoberts, the 6-foot-10 junior, committed to Blue Devils this afternoon in a press conference at Carmel HS (IN).
With his family, coaches and school administrators at his side, the consenus top 20 player, announced his decision.
"Upon graduating from Carmel HS in 2005, I will attend Duke University to play college basketball," McRoberts said.
He and his family drove to Durham, NC last weekend and had a chance to meet with the coaches. Then consulting with his parents, McRoberts decided to make his decision known so he can focus on his high school life.
"Upon spending time at Duke on two different occasions, I just knew that was the place for me," he said. "Coach K is a great person and a great coach.
"I really like the family atomsphere. I think it will be a good place for me to be."
This is the second committment in the 2005 class for the Blue Devils. Greg Paulus committed in early September.
