Three-star point guard C.J. Roberts signed his letter of intent to play for the Tigers, the school announced on Wednesday.
“It’s really special to have C.J. join our Mizzou basketball family,” men’s basketball coach Kim Anderson said in a release. “C.J. has game-changing ability and is a high-level scorer from the combo guard position. We look forward to him getting to Columbia for next season and becoming a part of our program.”
Roberts originally committed to Missouri in September over 19 other offers, including Alabama, Georgia, Baylor and Illinois, among others.
The 6-foot-2, 178-pound recruit is ranked as the nation’s No. 32 point guard and the state of Texas’ No. 14 overall player, according to 247Sports’ composite rankings.
Roberts is currently Missouri’s only 2017 basketball recruit, and has room to add one more prospect to its 2017 class. He scored 20 or more points in 13 games last season, topped 30 points three times and reached a holds a career-high of 39 points.
