The No. 27 overall player in the ESPN 100 and the No. 1 senior in New Jersey, combination forward Tyler Roberson (Union, N.J./Roselle Catholic), has committed to Syracuse over Kansas and Villanova.
He is the fifth prospect to pledge to the Orange and the second ESPN 100 performer, joining point guard Tyler Ennis (Brampton, Ontario, CAN/St. Benedicts Prep), shooting guard Ron Patterson (Indianapolis/Brewster Academy), small forward B.J. Johnson (Ardmore, Pa./Lower Merion) and center Chinonso Obokoh (Rochester, N.Y./Bishop Kearney). That gives Syracuse an excellent player an every position.
"Syracuse was not to far from home, they are moving to the ACC, they have a good coaching staff, I was most comfortable there and they fit my style of play," Roberson said
