Villanova Offers 2013 SF Tyler Roberson

According to Alex Kline, the Villanova Wildcats have offered Tyler Roberson, a 2013 small forward who plays for Roselle Catholic in New Jersey. According to Kline, he also may be visiting 'Nova for Friday's Hoops Mania.

Currently listed at around 6'7" and 190 lbs., Roberson is very much a big wing who possesses good ball skills and the ability to attack the rim. What will make him very attractive to other programs (he already sports offers from Syracuse, Louisville, Cincinnati, & Kansas State amongst others) is his ability to also play and defend the 4. With some work he could also probably develop a solid back to the basket game, making him a solid all-around player.

Roberson's stock seems to be on the way up as Rivals currently rates him as the 36th best prospect in 2013, up from his 95th ranking in their previous update.

The best news here is that Roberson may be visiting for Hoops Mania. He would join Allerik Freeman as a confirmed visitor.
