A player who always showed promise as an underclassman, Roberto Gittens has made major strides over the last year.
The 6-foot-5, 200-pound 2017 small forward from Tacoma (Wash.) Foss was impressive this weekend for the Northwest Panthers at the adidas Gauntlet, showing improved ball skills and shooting ability.
“I’ve been more confident and become more of a leader,” Gittens said. “I’ve just been leading my team, talking and rebounding. I want to dribble better and become more consistent.”
Washington has recruited Gittens for a long time, while Montana and Hofstra have offered him scholarships.
“I like the way they play; I like their style,” Gittens said of the Huskies.
The junior knows what he’ll be looking for in a school.
“Coaching,” Gittens said. “Every coach I’ve played for I’ve had a good relationship with. That’s what I’m looking for.”
