Class of 2020's Jeremy Roach quickly making his name known

HAMPTON, Va. The leading catalyst to his team’s 16-under championship this past weekend in Hampton, Va., Jeremy Roach is squarely in the mix as the top point guard prospect in the 2020 class. Blessed with an unbelievable burst, toughness and a tremendous feel for the game, there is due to be a heavy allotment of suitors for the Team Takeover product.

Running the show for one of the top 16-under teams in America, Roach has already garnered a full year of high school ball going up against the best within the DMV, coming off the bench and providing a spark for the talented Paul VI Catholic program.

Now on the travel circuit, the 6-foot freshman continues to cement his case as an elite recruit, though he holds just one offer.

“UVA just offered me back in early November,” Roach said.

On the last game of the evening on Saturday, a contest that was bleeding well past 10 p.m., Tony Bennett, the head coach of the Virginia Cavaliers, remained in attendance, justifying the respect that Roach has for the ACC program.

“It is special. It means he cares. It means that he knows that I am a good player,” Roach said.

Roach will finish out his first full year on the Nike circuit this summer playing with the Team Takeover travel program. Offers from the best programs nationally are due to add up for Roach.


A college decision is not expected for quite a while but thanks to the early foundation that Virginia has laid down with the talented guard, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the Wahoos as one of the favorites for him when a commitment does occur.
