The season is starting to wind down and get prepared for the playoffs but recruitments are starting to pick up for a number of seniors including Central Christian’s Michael Roberson. The 2018 standout is having a heck of a final year and schools are starting to lock in.
Over the last few weeks, Roberson is hearing from a number of teams including Mount Olive, Drury, Ohio Dominican, and Johnson C. Smith. Those schools join College of the Ozarks and Dodge City as his two current offers. Schools are really attracted to Roberson because of his stellar scoring ability.
So far this season, Roberson is averaging 23.5 points per game, 5.4 rebounds, and 2.9 steals. He’s a 6’0 point guard with a big offensive skill set. He’s shooting 45% from the field and has hit 42 three-pointers this year at a 31% clip. This is pretty consistent since his sophomore year and has been as about as productive a guard as you are going to find. With his ability to play on the ball and be a scoring point guard, it’s not surprising he is drawing a lot of interest.
Where Roberson is really interesting is on the offensive end. He’s got some length and really good ball handling ability allowing him get into the lane and finish with length at the rim. He’s not an exceptional shooter but pretty good and it really balances out his game. Defenders can struggle to pick their poison with him and when he gets hot, he can go off for big, big games. He’s had five games this year with more than 30 points and his season high is 41 points against International.
Things are still a ways away from Michael as the interest is just now really building. He’s got some more time to impress and has an upcoming schedule that will give some better chances for competitive views. His high school team, Central Christian, will still play Indian Creek and Covenant Christian to end the regular season but then get a Sectional in which they are the second best team behind Tindley. Best guess is they will get a shot at Tindley before the season is over.
