Terrence Roberts, a long and agile 6-8, 205 pound junior power/combination forward from St. Anthony's H.S. in Jersey City, N.J., will play for Jimmy Salmon's T5T Playaz program this spring and summer.
Roberts will travel with one of the most talented teams and will also face one of the more challenging schedules on the AAU circuit. This is good news for schools involved in the recruiting process. Roberts is one of the best players in the Class of 2003 and the continued top competition he will face insures that his skills will only improve this spring and summer.
Roberts is a bouncy athlete who thrives in St. Anthony's up tempo attack of excellent guards. His quick leaping ability make him a potent force in the paint, but Roberts can also step away and knock down the short-midrange jumper on occasion. He also runs like a guard.
Roberts also has decent upside. Once he strengthens his frame, this will add more punch to his inside game. The nice part of Roberts' game is his range. He has about 12-15 feet range on his jumper -- and it's a soft touch.
Roberts has been offered thus far by Seton Hall, Rutgers, St. Peter's, Syracuse and Massachusetts. He has significant interest from Louisville, Kentucky, St. Joe's, UConn, Notre Dame, Providence, St. John's, Villanova, Cincinnati, and Wichita State.
