Gilas Youth’s Travis Roberts receives offer from Wichita State

Despite being two years away from graduating high school, Travis Roberts has already received numerous offers from various Division I universities.

The 6-foot-5 Filipino-American swingman announced on Friday (Manila time) that he has received an offer from none other than Wichita State — the school that produced the likes of Cleanthony Early, Fred VanVleet, and Landry Shemet.

“Blessed to say I have received an offer from Wichita State,” he said on his Twitter account.

Roberts, who is just 17 years young, committed to being part of Gilas Youth’s pool two years ago.

The incoming junior from Bishop Walsh High School, who also plays in AAU team 6th Man Warriors, is a four-star recruit — 90th overall in the States and 3rd in the state of Maryland.

He is also part of the Filipino-American Youth Basketball Association of Washington DC (FYBA) — the same group that discovered Jordan Bartlett and Valandre Chauca.

Besides Wichita State, he has also received offers from Div. I schools Bryant University and Southern Utah University.

Definitely, his stock will continue to increase as he enters the last two years of his high school career.
