One class of 2017 prospect in the state of Indiana who had a very good season was Justin Roberts. A point guard with tremendous speed, Roberts was one of the best players in the city of Indianapolis all year long, and put up big numbers for one of the top teams in the state.
About the season, Roberts said, “I think it was a very good season for me. Being first team Marion County and being on the all-conference team while leading my team in scoring, I think it went real well individually. As a team we lost too early in the playoffs, but we are looking to come back and make a big impact next year.”
Now Roberts has been training hard to get ready for the spring when he will be running with Spiece Indy Heat.
“I think this spring will show a lot in terms of my leadership,” said Roberts. “We are going to be very talented, and playing in the EYBL it isn’t going to be easy. I am just going to try and show how much of a I leader I can be and taking care of the ball while.”
Most recently Roberts picked up an offer from DePaul, and he said it was good to pick up a Big East offer.
“It was a blessing,” said Roberts of the offer. “I was kind of hyped. They are in the Big East and seeing what the Big East is doing right now, it was a good offer for me.”
Along with the offer, Roberts has been to campus and said he is excited about the new arena and upgrades going on at DePaul.
“It was real cold, but it was a great time,” said Roberts. “I saw them against from here. The arena they are building is going to be done if I was to go there, and that is exciting. I liked the coaches and I have a good relationship with Coach Billy Garrett who is from (Indianapolis).”
To go with DePaul, several other schools are making sure to get out see Roberts in the spring.
“Dayton, LSU, Virginia Tech, Michigan, Bradley, Xavier, Ohio State and a few others,” Roberts noted. “I know Dayton says they are going to end up offering once Coach Miller has a chance to see me.”
Currently Roberts is considered a four-star prospect and one of the better floor generals in the Midwest.
