Roberson back on the court

Tyler Roberson is in his first year at a new school and has battled injuries, but still he has opened eyes with his play.

It has been a tough year for four-star forward Tyler Roberson. Now at Roselle (NJ) Catholic, Roberson had to sit out the first part of the season due to transfer rules, and then also missed some time with an injured hamstring. Now Roberson is back on the floor and getting significant college attention.

Getting back into the swing of things with his teammates hasn't been easy for Roberson, but he says that he is making strides.

"It's been a little rough trying to get back in the flow after the injury, but I think we are starting to come together," said Roberson.

He continued, "I think my game is coming along well and I am getting better every time out. I am feeling good."

When it comes to recruiting numerous schools have made sure to be involved with Roberson. He listed Kansas State, Alabama, Kansas, Rutgers, and Seton Hall as some of the schools that have made him a top target.

Recently Roberson made a visit to check out Rutgers, and Roberson says the Scarlet Knights will be in the mix for his services.

"They are in New Jersey so it would be nice to stay in state and be close to my family," said Roberson.

Another team showing him a lot of attention is Kansas. Roberson has been watching the Jayhawks all year and likes what he sees.

"I know they run a good offense that would fit me," Roberson explained. "I watch them on TV and things so I think it would be a pretty good fit."

For now the No. 43 player in the nation doesn't seem to be focused too much on his recruitment. However he does know a few factors that he will be looking for when the time does come to make a decision.

"I am just looking for somewhere that I fit in and that has a good coaching staff," said Roberson.

Look for Roberson to again run in the summer with the New Jersey Roadrunners.
