Fairly unknown nationally, Tyler Roberson was one of the more underrated players heading into the LeBron James Skills Academy.
While there, Roberson showcased his inside-outside game and parlayed that performance into a top-75 ranking and plenty of new college interest.
“My game changed a lot and then I had opportunities to showcase myself,” Roberson said.
Roberson, a 6-foot-7 junior forward from Roselle Catholic (N.J.), holds offers from Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Kansas State, Saint Joseph’s and Virginia Tech. Connecticut and others have also been through to watch him work out over the past couple of weeks.
“More schools have been recruiting me,” Roberson said of the uptick in recruitment since his standout play during the summer.
He has not taken any unofficial visits and does not plan to anytime soon. Roberson is willing to take his time with the recruiting process, but he knows what he is looking for in a school.
“A school with good academics,” Roberson said. “And one that fits my style of play.”
He is ranked No. 62 in CBSSports.com’s Top 100.
