There have been plenty of coaches waiting for St. Anthony's head coach Robert Hurley after his big wins over the past month.
Many of these coaches have been attending games to talk to Hurley about 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. Roberts is one of the best players in the Class of 2003.
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.
"Terrence has pretty good upside," Hurley told the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com. "We need to work on getting him stronger, but he's very agile and can step out to 13 or 14 feet."
"He runs well and he just needs to get stronger and play more physical too," Hurley concluded.
Roberts told the Insiders Report/Rivalshoops.com that he has been offered thus far by UMass and Syracuse. He has significant interest from Louisville, St. Joe's, UConn, Notre Dame, Providence, Rutgers, St. John's, Seton Hall, Villanova, Cincinnati, St. Peter's and Wichita State.
Roberts didn't play last season for the Friars due to a knee injury (patella tendon). So this year, he has adjusted well to high level basketball.
Roberts has played in the past with the Jersey City Heat program at various spring, summer and fall events.
