Improvement has led to increased recruiting for Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree

Power forward Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree contiues to improve as a prospect and is seeing his recruitment pick up.

The improvement of Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree has been clear and impressive. Cosby-Roundtree was excellent at the Cancer Research Classic over the weekend, and that was a continuation of a very strong junior season for him.

“To start the season we have played well,” said Cosby-Roundtree. “We have to continue to pick it up on defense, but we have started well. Individually I have worked on finishing around the rim, and also I am working on being more comfortable from the outside.”

One of the major reasons for the strong play on the year from Cosby-Roundtree is his added strength.

“I’ve gained 20 pounds since the summer,” said Cosby-Roundtree. “I have just been eating more and lifting more.”

When it comes to his recruitment, several schools are firmly in the mix.

“The coaches talking to me the most are Villanova, Temple, Providence, and USC,” he noted.

Villanova made sure to see Cosby-Roundtree at the Slam Dunk to the Beach event in Delaware, and he says it is good to hear from the hometown school.

“It is nice to hear from them,” Cosby-Roundtree explained. “It is a good option if I want to stay home and it is a good school to go to.”

Also USC head coach Andy Enfield made the cross-country flight to see him, and Cosby-Roundtree was excited to have him in attendance.

“I didn’t know they were coming in to see me, but they are a good program and someone I’m interested in,” noted Cosby-Roundtree.

At the moment there is no firm timetable for a decision from Cosby-Roundtree, but he does know what will be important to him when it comes time to look at a school.

“I’m looking for a school with good academics as well as a good basketball program,” said Cosby-Roundtree. “That is really important to me.”
