NBPA Camp: Tyler Roberson Spotlight

Four-star power forward Tyler Roberson showed off his versatile game at the NBPA Top 100 Camp.

Four-star power forward Tyler Roberson was one of the more productive players at the NBPA Top 100 Camp. The Roselle (NJ) Catholic standout battled injuries during the high school season, but now he is healthy and is having a strong spring and summer.

"It is a good experience to play against a lot of great players," said Roberson from the camp. "It is good to be here."

At the camp Roberson was very active getting his hands on rebounds, finishing around the rim and in the mid-range, and just making all the winning plays his team needed. According to Roberson he is feeling healthy and his game is progressing.

"My game is coming along well," said Roberson. "I had a setback during the season, but I feel like I am back on track and everything is going well."

Recruiting wise things have definitely picked up for Roberson, and the list of schools making a run at him continues to get longer.

"Every school has really been recruiting me hard," explained Roberson. "I have been talking to the normal schools like Syracuse, Alabama, South Carolina, Kansas, Villanova, Pittsburgh, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Rutgers, and Seton Hall."

The Syracuse Orange have made sure to make Roberson feel wanted, the forward feels he could be a good fit in their system.

"I think I would fit in with their style of play really well," said Roberson of the Orange. "If I was to go there I think I would definitely be successful in their program."

When it comes to Alabama, the Crimson Tide are further away than most of the schools on his list, but none the less he thinks it could be a good option for him.

"I am not too worried about going far from home," said Roberson. "If Alabama is the best situation from me it is where I will go. I like Alabama right now and their coaches seem like great guys."

Currently Roberson says he plans to get to both Rutgers and Seton Hall before the end of the summer for official visits. Roberson says the two in-state programs have done a lot of good things recently and he is interested in both.

"They've been coming along well," Roberson explained. "Over the past couple of years they both have gotten new coaching staffs and are coming along well."

Currently Roberson has no timeline for a commitment, but the No. 45 player in the country does know what he will be looking for in a school.

"I look for a school with a good coaching staff, where I fit in, where I feel comfortable, and a place that I can come in and play right away," explained Roberson.
