Roe's Decision Comes After Season

One of the more chronicled recruitments from the Class of 2008 will wrap up sometime in March. Delvon Roe, a highly regarded power forward, has all the information he needs to make a decision.

Scout.com's No. 4 prospect in the junior class rose quickly last year and as a result, he's in the process of wrapping up his recruitment. Delvon Roe, a 6-foot-8 power forward out of St. Edwards in Ohio, has his list at five schools. North Carolina, Michigan State, Michigan, Kansas and Ohio State are the key players.

Recently, the chatter has been that Roe is on the verge of committing to North Carolina. "That's (people's) opinion.," Roe said. "I can see why people would make that assumption. A lot of players went there and they run and up tempo style that I want to play in and they're having an unbelievable season right now."

In Roe's mind, he's narrowed his process and will wait until the completion of his season to make any announcement. At this stage, he's got the information he needs to decide. "I think I do. I think I have a good idea between one or two schools for what I really like. It's just a matter of time before I decide between two schools."

As dozens of his classmates pull the trigger and make early decisions, we asked Roe if he felt he had enough information and time to reach a decision. "I think I have. The people I have around me it makes it easier to know what I want and I have an idea of what I'm looking for."

After Roe makes his mind up, he'll lock in on his summer goal: becoming the top player in the Class of 2008. Even with a commitment in his back pocket, Roe said his approach to the spring and summer season won't change. His intensity, he vowed, will remain the same.

"That's what I'm know for … playing hard."

In a few weeks he won't have to play "hard to get" and will make a decision. Until then, the state championship remains his primary focus.
