Big goals for Roberts

Point guard Justin Roberts has big goals for this season.

Class of 2017 point guard Justin Roberts is already a seasoned veteran at the varsity level. The Indianapolis (Ind.) Pike standout is off to a good start to his sophomore season and continues to get significant attention on the recruiting trail.

The 5-foot-11 Roberts is someone who really sees the floor well, and now his shooting is taking a positive step. For Roberts he has big expectations for himself and his team.

“We are playing real well as a team,” said Roberts. “We learned from our game in Rockford and I think we are going to have a really good season.”

He continued, “I am working on everything. I want to be better as a scorer, on defense, and running a team.”

Recruiting wise schools such as Indiana, Purdue, Ohio State, Xavier, Michigan, Michigan State, Butler, and Illinois have all been in contact with Roberts, and he continues to hear from more and more coaches.

Roberts has already had a chance to visit most of the schools on his list, with the most recent one coming to a Big Ten power.

“The last place I visited was Michigan,” said Roberts. “It was a real good trip and they have a great campus. The players there are really good people, and the coaches do a great job of developing.”

While his focus is clearly on his season, Roberts says that he and his family will attempt to make a few more trips during the season.

“I want to visit Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, and some of the schools around here,” said Roberts.

At the moment Roberts says the big goal for Pike is to win a state championship, and if they do the sophomore floor general is going to be a big reason why.
