Nate Roberts, the 7-foot power forward from Brewster (NH) Academy, is down to a final three of Washington, Syracuse, and Nebraska, per Brewster head coach Jason Smith. Roberts, who will make his college decision on October 17, spoke about each school with D1VISION earlier this month:

Nebraska: “I know they play a fast-paced game. They need more versatile guys that are not just bound to play a position but flat out play hard. I know that my former teammate, Thomas Allen loves it there. We have a great relationship outside of basketball so he’s been telling me how things are going over at Lincoln.”

Syracuse: “The name speaks for itself. Over the years, coach [AdrianAutry and I have built a strong bond. He loves my potential as a player and me as a person. Their players that make it to the next level. Coach [JimBoeheim and I have developed a relationship recently and he’s come to watch me play a few times. He likes my game and knows what I can do to help the program.”

Washington: “The Seattle environment is beautiful. The coaches and staff treated me with genuine love. I connected well with the players. The school itself would be a great fit as far as academics.”

Roberts has taken official visits to Washington (Sept. 1) and Nebraska (Sept. 16), with his Syracuse visit upcoming (Sept. 22). He cut UConn and Wake Forest from his list and did not take an official visit to either school.

Back in August, Roberts spoke with D1VISION about what he’s looking for in a school, as he said, “I’m looking at a few things: player development, my incoming role, the coach to player relationship, being comfortable in my own skin there off the court, family-like environment with the program, and a school that has my major.”

According to 247Sports, Roberts is ranked as the No. 200 overall player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 5 player from the state of Maryland.
