Tyler Roberson has been cleared by the NCAA to play at Syracuse, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told SNY.tv’s Adam Zagoria Thursday morning.
“The NCAA has reviewed Tyler’s waiver and issued him full qualifier status,” the source said.
Roberson had been waiting to hear from the NCAA whether his high school transcript met the minimum standards for eligibility.
“I want to thank the NCAA staff for its help and work on reviewing and processing Tyler’s eligibility,” said Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim in a release.
Roberson is ranked as the No. 7 small forward in the 2013 class by Rivals.com. He is one of five freshmen for Syracuse this year, joining guards Tyler Ennis and Ron Patterson, forward BJ Johnson and center Chinonso Obokoh.
Roberson averaged 17.5 points, 11.7 rebounds and 3.3 blocks per game as Roselle Catholic won the New Jersey Tournament of Champions.
