A first look: 2008 target Matt Roth

I’ve talked quite a bit the past few weeks about 2008 target Matt Roth, but this is the first chance I’ve had to take in video of the Washington High (IL) sharpshooter. And since he was relatively unknown on the national scene until the Adidas Super 64 last month, this is probably your first look as well.

This video, courtesty of Midstatehoops.com, is from a game last November. You can definitely see why the IU coaching staff is hot on the trail of Roth: He can flat out shoot it. He also has a very quick release and doesn’t mind shooting with a hand in his face. After viewing this, I’m even more excited about the prospect of Roth becoming a Hoosier.
