The current 2010 Saint Joseph's recruiting class is a very impressive one. Langston Galloway, Daryus Quarles, and CJ Aiken were all top targets of the staff, and all 3 are only about a month away from signing their Letters of Intent to play at SJU.
There is a player whose name has been floating around SJU circles since last winter that is still unsigned. And that player is 6'7 Saint Peter's Prep forward Ronald Roberts. With major 2010 talent dropping off the board by the minute, Roberts is still available.
Roberts has been to Hawk Hill on more than one occasion and is listing the Hawks as a possible destination. Other schools involved with Roberts, as of a month ago, include Indiana, Providence, Temple, Penn State, and a few others.
What exactly would Roberts bring to the lucky college of his choice? In an August interview with Rivals.com, Roberts' high school coach Mike Kelly had this to say of his senior forward: "He has been an unbelievable success story in 365 days. He has grown to a legit 6-foot-7. He jumps through the roof and his game has just exploded. If he keeps on this pace, some day he could be a pro."
At the moment, Ronald is undecided about where he will spend his college years. His toughness, rebounding, and athleticism will make him a contributor wherever he ends up. Would he be a terrific addition to the 2010 SJU recruiting class? Absolutely. Will he? Only time will tell.
