C.J. Roberts Signs With Missouri

Three-star prospect C.J. Roberts, a 6-foot guard from Richland High School in Richland Hills, Texas., signed with Missouri on Wednesday morning.

Class of 2017 guard C.J. Roberts made a commitment to the Missouri basketball program in September after taking his official visit to check out the Tigers. 

On Wednesday, the 6-foot, 180-pound three-star prospect made that commitment official when Roberts signed his letter of intent on the first day of the early signing period. 

“It’s really special to have C.J. join our Mizzou Basketball Family,” Missouri coach Kim Anderson said in a press release. “C.J. has game-changing ability and is a high-level scorer from the combo guard position. He comes from an outstanding family and basketball program in Richland, Texas, where he has been a standout on the court and in the classroom. We look forward to him getting to Columbia for next season and becoming a part of our program.”

Roberts averaged 22.5 points per game as a junior during the 2015-16 season at Richland High School (Richland Hills, Texas) after averaging 14.8 points per contest as a sophomore.

Roberts picked the Tigers over offers from Georgia, LSU and Mississippi.
