Over a dozen programs have reached out to 2020 shooting guard Jett Roesing of First Love (PA) to offer him a scholarship.
Fairfield, Wagner, Youngstown State, UMass, Delaware, Manhattan, Canisius, Towson, USC-Upstate, Bryant, Rider and Central Connecticut State, have all offered, according to his Twitter page.
The sharpshooter, who averaged over 20-points a game last season, has enjoyed the recruiting process for what it is, but is close to making some major recruiting decisions.
“I’m going to narrow down soon,” he said. “I don’t know when but I’m going to commit in November.”
Roesing plans to sit down with his family over the next couple of days and start deciding what schools to visit. He will narrow down to five schools, then take his five official visits.
There are plenty of things that he will be looking for on those official visits, but he highlighted a few for ScoopmanTV.
“Just the relationship, if it’s the right fit and the right vibe,” he said. “Of course listen to what all they have to say and what’s going to fit me best.”
He wasn’t ready to reveal any schools that were standing out just yet, but he did highlight the ones who have made him a priority and are recruiting him the hardest.
“Mostly all of them are coming at me hard,” he said. “They all talk to me a lot but I’d say the top ones are Delaware, Duquesne, Wagner and UMass.”
Roesing transferred to First Love as a shooter. He’s now changed his game drastically and can do a lot of different things on the floor. His maturation in the backcourt has a lot of coaches intrigued but it’s the thing he does best that has their attention.
“They like how I shoot the ball. They said I shoot the ball efficiently deep,” Roesing explained. “So with the line moving back, it will help them space out the offense, and they also like how hard I play on defense and the energy I bring.”
His decision is just four months away and he’s prepared to make it when it happens. He already knows what he’s looking for at the next level and what it will take to get him on campus for the next four years.
“Relationships to me are very important. Like the vibe I get from the school, who’s surrounding me,” he said. “I’m not really worried about where it’s at. It’s just got to be the right fit for me to jump right in and play.”
“I don’t want to be that guy that sits for a couple of years. I want to jump in and make an impact right away.”
