Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree talks Syracuse

Syracuse offered 2017 power forward Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree earlier this week. CuseNation.com caught up with Cosby-Roundtree to talk the offer and his interest in the Orange.

On Monday, Syracuse offered Dhamir Cosby-Roundtree, a 2017 3-star power forward out of Neumann-Goretti (PA), a scholarship. Cosby-Roundtree is teammates with 2017 point guard target Quade Green, who holds high interest in the Orange.

After picking up an offer from Villanova roughly a month ago, and USC earlier this week, his recruitment is starting to take off. 

Both coach Boeheim and coach McNamara visited Green and Cosby-Roundtree on Monday, which was the first time DCR talked with coach Boeheim. "It was cool, he's a very cool coach," Dhamir described as his first impression of the Orange's head coach.

"Coach Boeheim came in and spoke with me after our workout," he told CuseNation.com. When asked if he was surprised by the offer, "Yes and no. I kinda expected it," he explained, "They have been contacting my coaches about me and were showing interest at the elite camp." 

With Syracuse offering both Green and DCR, the Orange could be eyeing a package deal. When I asked Dhamir if he and Quade have discussed it, he replied, "We have. We speak about it from time to time but haven't really thought too much into it." 

Green will unofficially visit Syracuse next week, however DCR won't make the trip. A visit in the future is likely to happen, however. "Yeah, I really like the 'Cuse. I'm really considering them along with a couple other schools." 

Many Syracuse fans are just learning about Dhamir, so I gave him the opportunity to describe his game for those who are curious. "I'm a very athletic forward that plays above the rim. I dunk a lot, I play on both the high and low posts," he said. "I'm a shot blocker."

Standing at 6-foot-8 and roughly 210 pounds, a great shot-blocker and someone who likes to run the floor, DCR is an ideal Jim Boeheim recruit.
