The recruiting process has heated up for 2007 wing guard prospect D'walyn Roberts, 6-foot-7, 180-pounds. No less than six high major coaching staffs have been to Duncanville (Texas) High School this fall to recruit Roberts. Two of those schools have already offered.
"I'm interested in Baylor, Texas A&M, Illinois, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas Tech, Vanderbilt, USC and SMU," said Roberts. "Baylor and Texas A&M have each offered."
Roberts then listed Baylor, Illinois, Texas, SMU, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M as the schools that have watched him workout this fall.
When it comes time to choose a school, Roberts will look more closely at style of play than location.
"I'm looking for a team that runs the ball," he said. "I'll play anywhere. I just want to play and help the team win games."
With the capability to score inside and outside and to stretch the defense with his deep range, Roberts realizes that gaining strength is essential for his success at the next level.
"I definitely need to get stronger," he said. "I'm also working hard on my ball handling skills. I'm also making an effort to be more aggressive offensively."
As a sophomore, Roberts averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds per game.
