Roberts, a 6-foot-1 combo guard out of Richland Hills (Tex.) Richland, committed to the Tigers over interest from Georgia, LSU, Mississippi, Texas Tech and Louisiana Tech. Roberts took his official visit to Missouri this past weekend.
A three-star recruit, Roberts is known for his aggressive nature and scoring ability.
"CJ is a tough, aggressive kid with a very good first step. He's a talented scorer that can put up points in a variety of ways," Scout analyst Brian Snow said.
This marks the first commitment of Missouri's 2017 recruiting class.
