Recently, ShowMeMizzou.com spoke with 2014 junior college PG prospect Roderick Bobbitt 6’3” 200 Ottumwa (IA) Indian Hills Community College, who confirmed that Missouri has offered him a scholarship. He talked about his Missouri offer, his interest in Missouri, and he updated us on his recruitment.
“I talked to Coach Haith on the phone,” said Bobbitt, who said that Coach Haith came to watch him play last month. “He was telling me that he is really interested in me, and that he saw me play last month. He said that I played well. And he was telling me about their situation, with the players leaving. He was telling me that he’d like to have me come in, that I could be a leader, and bring some leadership to the team. He was telling me that he really likes me, and that he’s the one who is going to be recruiting me. And, he talked to my mom and everything.”
During the 2013-2014 season, Bobbitt averaged 15.9 points, 5.3 assists, and 3.7 steals per game for Indian Hills. He shot 47% from the field, 36% from 3-PT land, and 77% from the FT line. He also posted a 2.4 assist-to-turnover ratio.
Bobbitt, who is from Oakland (CA), is “good friends” with Jabari Brown. He said that once he returns to Iowa from Spring Break, near the middle of the month, that he’s going to visit Missouri.
Bobbitt will finish at Indian Hills in May, and he will be ready to matriculate in June.
“I’m going to have to sit down and really talk to my parents and see what’s going on,” explained Bobbitt. “I know that Mizzou is a great fit. But I’m going to sit down with my parents. And, I’m going to talk to my coaches. Then I’m going on these visits, and just see how things are. I mean, I’m definitely going to visit Missouri.”
