Xavier Roberson of Paris Junior College signed a Letter of Intent with USA on Monday evening. Roberson, a 6'2" shooting guard, began his career at Texas Tech where as a freshman he averaged 4 points and 1.1 rebounds per game, hitting 20 of his 47 three point attempts, 42.6%. He spent this past year playing for former Jaguar assistant coach Chuck Taylor at Paris where he averaged 14.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.7 steals per game. He shot 46% from the field, 42% on his threes and 75% from the line.
"South Alabama is getting a great person and great character guy," said Taylor. "He has a high-energy motor in regards to his work ethic. His best asset is his ability to create and shoot the ball (but) he is also a great on-the-ball defender who has a great knack for getting steals.
Coach Taylor also said that Roberson has the ability to handle the ball and play some point, but it is scoring prowess from beyond the arc that sets him apart.
USA has now filled two guard spots for next season, but according to Coach Ronnie Arrow they may have as many as six scholarships to give this spring, so things are far from over on the recruiting front.
