McRoberts Schedules a Press Conference

After spending the weekend in Durham for an unofficial visit, Carmel Indiana combo forward Josh McRoberts has scheduled a press conference on Tuesday afternoon according to school officials at Carmel High.

Sources indicate that the 3:45 presser will be for McRoberts to announce his collegiate decision. At that time he is expected to choose the Duke Blue Devils over North Carolina, Indiana, Notre Dame, and Arizona.

Last weekend McRoberts and his family spent the weekend visiting Duke unofficially.

"We had a great time in Durham," Tim McRoberts, Josh's father, told TDD Monday morning. "It was really great to see Josh identifying and interacting with the players they have there. He really seemed to fit in well with them. I think he was very confortable with the surroundings at Duke."

The elder McRoberts indicated that this was not only a chance for Josh and himself to return to Duke after spending a week at Coach K's annual camp in June, but it was also a chance for Mrs. McRoberts to see what her son and husband had been talking about when they returned home.

"We took her and the whole family to get a feel for what Duke was all about. She got a chance to meet the coaching staff, tour the facilities, which were top notch, and see the how close the team was while we were at the football game."

When McRoberts makes it official on Tuesday, he will join Greg Paulus as the lone members of the class of 2005 to commit to the Blue Devils.

TDD recruiting analyst Clint Jackson was asked what he thought of McRoberts at this point in his career:

"He is quite possibly the most skilled post player in the 2005 class," said Jackson. "This kid has footwork, a nice touch, he blocks shots and he is one of the best passers in the entire nation on the high school level.
