Status: Duke Prospect - Class of 2010
Position: Small Forward
Vitals: 6'7, 205lbs
Noteable: Roscoe Smith broke from his anti-AAU mentality and suited up with Baltimore Assault in Las Vegas this summer, alongside the enigmatic Josh Selby. The head coaches, including Coach K, spent a lot of time following the team around the north side of Las Vegas.
In his first trip to the city that truly never sleeps, Smith said he took notice of those that were in the bleachers watching him. Duke was present at each of his games and after his team's tough loss to the New England Playaz, Smith talked about his relationship with Duke and the coaching staff.
"I've talked to Coach K a couple of times. We talked about him working with Team U.S.A. and how he's enjoyed coaching those players. I've really enjoyed talking to him. It's been good getting to know him," Smith said.
"I like everything about Duke. Coach K has told me about how I'd fit in with them and that I could be a missing piece of the puzzle."
Recruiting Note: The 6-foot-7 Smith recently cut his list from five to a final group that includes Duke, Georgetown, and Connecticut. He has already visited Georgetown and Connecticut officially. An official visit to Duke is expected to occur before any progress is made on the decision making process.
