Roberts Picks Syracuse

Terrence Roberts has had one heckuva week. Things got a little wild after his visit to Maryland last weekend. Now, we hear he's headed to the Big East.

Syracuse Lands Roberts

Terrence Roberts committed to Syracuse last night, per our sources. Apparently, he began calling staffs late Wednesday evening. Syracuse was the leader for most of his recruiting process until the visit to Maryland.

During his visit to Maryland, rumors persisted that the Terps took a commitment from Ekene Ibekwe. As it turned out, they did and Roberts then further narrowed his choices to Virginia and Syracuse.

He'll join Demetris Nichols and Louis McCroskey as the Orangemen have formed another nice recruiting class. We fell in love with Nichols defensive abilities and McCroskey is a blue collar guy.

Roberts, a lefty, brings athleticism to the power forward position. Get him the ball near the basket and he'll flush it.

Roberts will formally announce his selection at a 2:30 p.m. press conference at his high school.
