Class of 2018 forward Nate Roberts committed to Washington Tuesday night, Elevate Hoops reported.The three-star power forward, per 247sports.com, cut his list to Syracuse, Washington and Nebraska on Sept. 20. He currently attends Brewster (New Hampshire) Academy alongside SU commits Brendan Paul and Buddy Boeheim, son of Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim.Since before Roberts started playing for Team Melo of the Nike EYBL, he had been on Syracuse’s radar, Dwayne Wise, the recruiting coordinator at Team Melo, told The Daily Orange.“Syracuse has been there the whole time,” Wise said.Former Syracuse associate head coach and now-Washington head coach Mike Hopkins had been the original recruiter of Roberts. After his departure for UW, Wise said, SU head coach Jim Boeheim took over the recruitment.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textRoberts first came onto Wise’s radar in his sophomore year of high school. Scouts had reached out to Wise after Roberts had “blown up” at an Under Armour circuit camp. So, he recruited him to play for Team Melo.“When I first saw him, I watched him at a high school game,” Wise said. “He appeared to be a little raw, but what I’ve noticed is he has really good skills.”Those skills, Wise, said, is his ability to knock down the mid-range shot and even stretch the floor out to the 3-point line. He also has good ball handling and is an “underrated passer for his size.”Roberts is listed at 6-foot-9 and 210 pounds, per 247sports. He is the sixth-best player out of Maryland and 57th ranked power forward in 2018.“One of the things that stood out with him,” Wise said, “was his ability to run the floor as a guard and (he) just happened to grow.”Roberts is the second player to select Washington over Syracuse since Hopkins became the head coach. He joins Hamier Wright, a four-star small forward that reclassified to the Class of 2017.

For many long moons, our elders hath sent messengers enclosed with a prophecy. After a bevy of solar cycles, but alas — no glory, the Hacks would reclaim the throne through a plentiful fight. The last match brought no such contest, but it would be the bout of 2019 yond fulfilled a mark hath not been crossed since decades before the young Hacks walked this realm. For, not once, but twice in the singular solar cycle, the Hacks be’est the champions of the court.In the battle tweenst two nearest equally capable foes, the Hacks triumphed, 65-57, upon the crumbling of an ancient dynasty of Fanboys that hath not free from the bellows of futility since 2017, the year of the Schwedelson.“Back to back is the best feeling in the world. This just proves The Daily Orange is committed to excellence,” Senior Staff Writer Charlie DiSturco spoke. “All I wanted to do was have my legacy be taking home two straight chips. Easy money.”The campaign sprung upon a barter of counts yond the enlivened adversaries. Thou hath apperceived the weight yond thou instant upon a gaze upon the apprehensive marks cast on the faces of the disapproved. The Hacks hath needed a knight to protect this realm, and it was summoned in the unlikeliest of forms. Sophomore Staff Writer Danny Emerman, the youngest of thou lords thou hath started, ballasted the Hacks with a plentiful count of 26 scores — a mark not reached since 2014, the year of the Schneidman.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSusie Teuscher | Digital Design Editor“Danny Emerman was on fire all game and there was nothing the fanboys could do. He looked like a young Steph Curry out there,” DiSturco decreed. “There’s that look on his eyes where you know he’s taking complete control. You get out of his way, let him dominate and just watch as the fanboys simmer down and scour on the bench.”Upon Emerman’s triumphs, the Fanboys conjured no response. A concept thou crafted be’est to propel thou pace and trigger the orb upon the fateful cylinder. But Tyler Aki’s multitude of blunders, in which the orb not come neareth the cylinder, provest a revival be a dastardly task.Be not for the Hacks’ undertaking upon the semi-circle delineation that shall be granted for no fee, marked upon DiSturco’s 14-consecutive defects, the kingdom of scribes hath might larboarded thou court among a count much grander than 65.“I missed my first nine free throws,” Emerman spoke. “The only one that mattered was the one when they were chanting ‘No one reads your paper!’ I sunk that one.”As the dusk settled upon the kingdom, the time for a Fanboys resurrection had dwindled to less’est of measures. The Fanboys carved upon the defalcation. Seven counts below, 50 times passed south. For mere moments, time halted. Hither ye, hither ye, Fanboys. Proveth thou a plentiful opponent. But alas, the Fanboys crumbled and the Hacks hath claimed superiority.As thou enter thou Media Cup slumber, until the dawn of a new solar cycle, thou be’eth larboarded with a singular message: The Daily Orange be’est upon the throne.“The fanboys showed their true colors late in the contest, when they utilized the same free throw distraction methods of Otto’s Army,” Senior Staff Writer Billy Heyen spoke. “It was the last effort from an opposition that always shaped up to be too much talk, not enough action.”W.F.
