St. John's basketball recruiting: Quincy Roberts is Officially a Member of the RedStorm

Press release:

April 29, 2008

QUEENS, N.Y. - St. John's head men's basketball coach Norm Roberts announced the signing of high school guard Quincy Roberts (Harrisburg, Pa.) to a national letter of intent to play for the Red Storm, beginning in the 2008-09 season.

"We're excited about Quincy joining our basketball family and our University," said Roberts, entering his fifth year at the helm of the Red Storm. "He comes from a culture of success, on and off the court, and his versatility will really help him contribute immediately to our backcourt. Quincy's personality and leadership qualities will enable him to mix well with our guys and our campus community."

Roberts, a 6-5, 190-pound all-state standout from Harrisburg High School in the state capital of Pennsylvania, is a combination guard with outstanding scoring, ballhandling and playmaking abilities. A versatile athlete, Roberts led the Cougars to state tournament semifinal appearances as a sophomore and junior, and helped Harrisburg combine for a 73-16 record across his final three seasons.

Roberts averaged 18.5 points per game, 6.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists during his senior campaign to notch a third-straight Mid-Penn all-conference selection, earning first team honors, and was named to the Harrisburg Patriot-News Big 15. A dual-sport athlete, Roberts' leadership qualities also translated to the gridiron, where he competed as a quarterback and wide receiver for the Harrisburg H.S. football team.

"I'm very excited to be headed to St. John's," said Roberts, who also recently participated in the Florida vs. USA Senior Showcase in Orlando, Fla. "The coaching staff made me feel very comfortable, and it is a great situation for me to play in New York City and the BIG EAST Conference."

"Quincy will be a great fit at St. John's because of his versatility," said Roberts' high school basketball coach, Kirk Smallwood. "As a senior he played wherever we needed him to, but he'll play a more natural position at the No. 1 and No. 2 guard spots at St. John's."

Side note: I love how the official Red Storm site is covering up the bad news and the mess around the team on the main site by showing Coach Roberts interviewed by attractive women. [I grabbed the pics just in case they change sometime soon.]

"Don't look at the coach... look at the pretty faces."
