Just like that, Tyler Roberson has narrowed his list of schools down to three.
While hurricane Sandy was beating up the East Coast on Monday, the 6-foot-8 forward from Roselle (N.J.) Catholic confirmed that he is down to three schools.
Ranked No. 31 nationally, Roberson confirmed to Rivals.com that he has cut his list down to Kansas, Syracuse and Villanova.
"I think I'm getting a little closer to a decision," Roberson told Rivals.com. "After I took my visits I thought about it and I really thought that these three schools are the ones I could see myself going to."
The No. 31 player in the country, Roberson is a hybrid forward who is quite versatile. He is a high volume rebounder who can stretch defenses as a four man. Or, he can be deployed as a jumbo sized wing with athleticism and a deadly mid range jump shot.
After checking out Villanova over the weekend, Roberson has now been on the campus of each of his finalists.
He broke down what he likes about each program.
Kansas - "It's a basketball program. They are one of the best in the country and when I talked to coach Self it seemed like everything we talked about I liked.
Syracuse - "Syracuse, I think I fit the way they play a lot. They aren't too far away from home for me and they are also a good program to play for."
Villanova - "Villanova is really close to home and I liked my visit there. They are in the Big East and it's a great conference and they have a good program too."
Roberson didn't yet commit to an exact time frame, but he's expected to make his decision within the next few weeks and sign during the early signing period.
"I think I'll decide in the next week or two," said Roberson. "I'm just going to talk to the coaches more and see how I feel about each of those schools."
