Nate Roberts makes mid-season move, has high major interest

2018 forward Nate Roberts talked to Scout about his mid-year move and his recruitment.

In December, Nate Roberts was playing for Baltimore (Md.) John Carroll. By mid-January, Roberts, a three-star versatile prospect, opted to make a move to Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy to play for Jason Smith.

“I just [had] a deep talk with my family over winter break and it seemed like a better opportunity, better competition, better academic wise, so it was just a better opportunity overall,” Roberts told Scout.

Robert, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound forward, hopes the move helps his development. In the Hoophall Classic, although he didn’t get a ton of minutes because he's still getting acclimated with a new team, but Roberts still showed his potential.

“I consider myself a high motor guy, someone who runs the floor well, rebounds, blocks shots, get buckets around the basket, stretch it out if I can, dribble if I can, just keep my game well-rounded and not staying one-dimensional.”

What’s the next step in his development?

“Definitely getting stronger and ball handling and shooting,” he said.

Roberts says his recruitment is going “good,” but that it’s been somewhat quiet since the summer.

With that said, high major schools have been keeping tabs on him. Among the schools he listed were SyracuseUConnIndiana, PurdueWest VirginiaMaryland and Xavier.

“Everybody’s pretty much even,” he said. “Nobody’s really sticking out right now.”
