Quincy Roberts will announce his decision to attend St. John’s on Tuesday, according to a source close to the program.
Roberts, a 6-5, 175-pound shooting guard from Harrisburg, Pa., was on campus last week.
Roberts is also close friends with Karon Burton, a 5-9 guard from Chester (Pa.), so don’t be surprised if Burton picks the Johnnies as well.
St. John’s has three scholarships remaining and many holes to fill, especially after guards Mike Cavataio and Larry Wright recently announced their intention to transfer.
The decision by Roberts could not have come at a better time for St. John’s, which recently lost out on Florida transfer Jonathan Mitchell, who stopped considering St. John’s at least in part because of uncertainty surrounding head coachNorm Roberts’s future.
