#OTRHoopsReport: Prospect Evaluation – Kohl Roberts – Feb. 20, 2015
Junior forward Kohl Roberts was great this season for Rivewood High School.
Kohl Roberts– (Atlanta, Ga), –Riverwood– 2016
Position: Power Forward
Roberts is a stretch forward that has the ability to knock down shots from the short corner or high post. He attacks the boards with aggression on both ends, and points usually result from offensive rebounds and put-backs. He also has good athleticism, which allows him to get out and score in transition. On the break he can run the middle of the floor and be the first post down the floor to clean up anything around the basket or spot up for the mid-range jumper. On defense Roberts puts forth good effort to move his feet to deny the ball inside and works to push his man out of the lane to prevent deep post up position.
This season Roberts has helped his team reach the Georgia state playoffs while averaging 14 points 12 rebounds and 4 blocks per game this season. The 6-foot-6 forward has attracted the attention of Austin Peay, Western Carolina, UNC-Asheville, and Yale. He has good upside, a player for college programs to continue to watch and see how he develops over the coming months.
