Coach Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orange continued their recent success on the recruiting trail with another major commitment Friday, as New Jersey forward Tyler Roberson announced his intent to play for the upstate New York program.
Roberson, a 6-7, 200-pound forward from Roselle Catholic (N.J.), is a multitalented and athletic forward who becomes the fifth member of Boeheim’s 2013 class.
He joins point guard Tyler Ennis, guard Ron Patterson, forward B.J. Johnson, and center Chinonso Obokoh.
Roberson is a player with a good deal of upside, part of the reason he is ranked in the top 40 of his class, but will have to continue to develop to see minutes with the Orange.
In the fall of 2011, Roberson had a memorable match-up with now-Indiana commit Noah Vonleh, where the two went head-to-head. In a back-and-forth battle, Roberson played perhaps the best basketball I have personally seen him play, using both the face-up game and attacking instinct to score offensively.
