Roseboro selects Marquette

Quakertown senior Brett Roseboro gave an oral commitment yesterday to play men's basketball at Marquette University.
The 6-foot-10 forward chose the Golden Eagles over Maryland, St. John’s, Temple, Providence and Rutgers.
Roseboro made his decision while on a visit to Marquette’s Milwaukee-based campus.

“It’s been an unbelievable process,” Quakertown coach Kevin Keeler said. “I’ve been the head coach at Quakertown for 26 years. And this is our first Division I recruit.
“He’s blown up so to speak from last year at this time.”
The 17-year-old saw his stock rise earlier this month in the iS8/Nike Tip-Off Classic in South Jamaica, N.Y.
Roseboro scored 27 points against Maryland recruit James Padgett in the AAU event, while shooting from the perimeter and scoring on post-up moves.
“Right then, it was like, ‘Wow,’ ” Keeler said. “He name just got splattered around.”
The coach, however, isn’t shocked by his standout’s sudden rise.
“He just worked on [on his game] everyday,” he said. “He steps out. He has a soft touch.”
Roseboro averaged 12 points and 10 rebounds last season at Quakertown.
