Kentucky Wildcats Recruiting: 2013 SF Tyler Roberson Earns an Offer

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The latest stop on the John Calipari Recruiting Express was in New Jersey, where Calipari met with 2013 small forward Tyler Roberson from Roselle Catholic. Kentucky assistant coach Orlando Antigua had been by the school last week to watch Roberson work out. On yesterday's visit, Calipari offered Roberson. That is Kentucky's third extended offer this signing period, along with big men Marcus Lee and Kennedy Meeks.

Roberson is somewhat of a surprise offer, given that Kentucky appears to be "all-in" on Andrew Wiggins, currently a member of the 2014 class but a strong candidate to reclassify. The Wildcats also have offers out to 2013 prospects James Young and Aaron Gordon. Either player could conceivably play the "3," which is Roberson's likely position.

That said, Roberson has been gaining steam in recruiting circles. 247's Jerry Meyer even compared his style of play ($) to someone Wildcats fans will know and love: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. That's some high praise right there. Roberson is ranked 26th nationally in 247's Composite Rankings.

Roberson currently has visits set up to SMU, Syracuse, and Kansas. He is deciding on his final two official visits, and is undecided on a fall or spring decision. Beyond the first three schools listed, Roberson is also considering Rutgers, Alabama, Florida, Seton Hall, South Carolina and Villanova.
