Region Player of the Year. 1000 points scored. High-Major interest.
Cambridge High School point guard Kamar Robertson has performed well throughout his junior season. After finishing last summer with one of Georgia’s top AAU programs, Game Elite(16u), Robertson has continued to elevate his game. There is no surprise that he’s received a ton of interest from Division 1 schools across the country.
Georgia State University’s assistant coach Sharman White was in attendance January 23rd, as he watched Kamar lead his Cambridge team to an overtime win against North Atlanta in which he hit the game-winning basket. A few days later (January 27th), Roberston was at The University of South Carolina for an unofficial visit where he watched the Gamecocks take on Texas Tech. Fast forward two weeks later (February 9th), coaches from both Clemson and Rice attended his game against Alpharetta High School. Roberston led his squad to a 70-69 victory that night.
Kamar also has interest from Georgia, Georgia Tech, Tennessee Tech, Mercer, Troy, and South Alabama along with the schools noted above. Although no schools have offered, I asked him for his thoughts on the recruitment process. Robertson said, “It’s exciting. I think everything is going pretty well. I just need to continue being patient and in due time, the offers will come.”
When asked what he wants coaches to see when they evaluate him, he said, “I want them to know I can help lead their team. I’m good at spreading the court and taking defenders off the dribble at any time. After beating defenders off the dribble, I’m great at dishing the ball to my teammates and attacking the basket.”
Kamar stands right at about 6’0, but he plays bigger than his size. He attacks the basket strongly, absorbs the contact from contesting defenders, and still finishes his layup attempts. Another asset to his game is his shooting. Kamar shot 35% from beyond the arc, 51% from the field, and 83% from the free throw line during the regular season. His season averages totaled up to 16 points per game, 6 rebounds per game, and 5 assists per game. He’ll suit up with his Cambridge Bears team again on Friday, February 16th, for the first round of the GHSA state playoffs.
Robertson also mentioned that he’ll be playing with the Atlanta Celtics(17u Adidas Gauntlet Gold) this upcoming summer as his team switched organizations. His recruitment should continue to improve if he maintains this current level of play. Check out the video below for Kamar’s 2017-2018 regular season highlights.
