2005 Hoops Recruiting Board - Updated

Get to know the names of the top prospects on the Duke recruiting radar in the rising senior class.

Duke Commitments From 2005

Josh McRoberts

6'10 235 PF
Carmel, IN
Rank: 28
Pos Rank: 10
Very skilled power forward prospect who has an advanced scoring repertoire. As he adds weight his stock will continue to rise.
Greg Paulus

6'2 180 PG
Syracuse, NY
Rank: 16
Pos Rank: 3
He’s tough minded, very coachable, intense and not afraid to get in the face of a teammate and let him know the deal. Sees the floor very well and racks up high numbers of assists. He can also stroke it from the perimeter.

Prospects on the Recruiting Radar in 2005

Eric Boateng

6'11, 225 C
Middletown, DE
Rank: 13
Pos Rank: 1

Has a very long, strong body, with very good athleticism, and the ability to get off the floor quickly to rebound and block shots. His offense is still developing, but he has a good basic offensive feel.
C.J. Miles

6'6 210 SF
Dallas, TX
Rank: 6
Pos Rank: 2
Versatile wing who played point guard before growing an additional four inches. Needs to add strength, but could be the best slasher to come out of the class of 2005.

Jamal Boykin

6'7 225 SF
Fairfax, CA
Rank: 57
Pos Rank: NR

One of those kids who truly values winning and he’s wired to score. He’s a good, not great athlete, who has good touch on his jumper and will work inside and out. Love his competitiveness and appears to be steadily improving.

Tyrell Biggs

6'8 265 PF
Ramsey, NJ
Rank: 24
Pos Rank: 7

Wide body will go to both hands around the rim to increase his effectiveness.
Jon Brockman

6'7 240 PF
Seattle, WA
Rank: 28
Pos Rank: 9

Physical banger. Moves well, but not especially explosive. Instincts and desire make him a very good rebounder. Offensive game limited outside of the paint. Tough and competitive.
Julian Wright

6'8 190 SF
Chicago, IL
Rank: 9
Pos Rank: 3
He scores inside and out, handles the ball well for his size and is a terrific passer. His shot is slightly unconventional but doesn’t lack for arch and rotation. He doesn’t always put prolific scoring numbers and there has been some concern about him having a relatively quiet year.
Chris Douglas-Roberts

6'5 165 PG
Detroit, MI
Rank: 15
Pos Rank: 2
Played mostly off-guard for his high school team, but is projected by many college coaches as a point guard. Being 6-5 with good quickness and athleticism gives him great versatility and it could make him even more attractive to college coaches this summer.

Other Prospects of Note

Theo Davis

6'10 220 C
Bayside, NY
Rank: 43
The top-ranked player in Canada the past few seasons. He has big time college potential. Attended the 2002 Nike Hoop Jamboree event. Versatile enough to where he’s able to impact games at both ends.
Bobby Frasor

6'3 175 PG
Chicago, IL
Rank: 23
Has tremendous vision and is a combo guy who could shift to the point in college. Knocks down 3s, makes plays and handles it well.
Andrew Bynum

611 240 PG
Metuchen, NJ
Rank: 47
Has tremendous size. Just beginning to figure out how to use his size. Could wind up being a high-major prospect with improvement and a commitment to rebounding.
