Decatur, AL (Future150) --
Working hard each day on your game is what is needed to accomplish your goals.
Brandon Roberts is a 6-foot-1 inch 165-pound combo guard out of Decatur, Alabama, who labors on the court daily to make sure he achieves all of his personal objectives.
This 2011 Future150 Birmingham Camp Alum is a tremendous shooter, attacks the basket well, and possesses a knack for finding open teammates. His three point shot is very consistent and he’s a true defensive-minded guard, giving opponents a tough time against him.
When asked how he had benefitted from the Birmingham camp, he provided a one word, definitive answer.
He is a well-rounded player, but he knows that he has to keep working on his skills and body to get his game to next level.
“I need to work on improving my skills and just get in the weight room so I can get stronger,” he advised.
His high school team did fairly well last season. Roberts was able to average around 17 points, five assists, and four rebounds per game, helping his team get to the regional bracket in the post-season.
Roberts has used his basketball talents to gain quite a bit of attention from several colleges.
“I’m currently being recruited by Jacksonville University, Marquette, Charleston Southern, Wagner, Oregon State, Marshall, Maryland, and George Mason,” he informed.
Though he has no favorites right now, Roberts notified me that Jacksonville, Marquette, Charleston Southern, and Marshall are coming at him the hardest.
He plans to take visits to Jacksonville and Charleston in the near future. He also wants to cut his list down, maybe even possibly commit to a school, before his 2012-13 season starts.
This senior is going to be someone to look out for and will be an excellent player for any college on his list. Our conversation had practically ended, but Roberts decided to leave me with the following comment.
“I really just want to be the best player I can be, one of the best players in the nation. I'm pushing myself every day and working on getting better. Now I'm just waiting on exposure and more opportunities to showcase my talent.”
