Former Bradley guard Terry Roberts will transfer to Georgia next season, he announced via his Instagram account. The post features highlights from his one season with the Braves as well as a graphic of Roberts in a Bulldogs jersey.

A JUCO transfer who played his first two collegiate seasons at Florida Southwestern State College, Roberts averaged 14.5 points, 4.1 assists and 1.6 steals per game for the Braves in 2021-22. The 6-foot-3 point guard started 31 games, helping Bradley to a 17-14 finish. For his performance, he was also named the Missouri Valley Newcomer of the year as well as first team all-conference.

Roberts is set to join a Georgia team that posted an abysmal 6-26 record this past season. That prompted the Bulldogs to parted ways with coach Tom Crean after just four seasons, hiring Florida’s Mike White as his replacement. Now it appears he has his point guard for his inaugural season in 2022-23.

After entering the NCAA Transfer Portal last month, Roberts quickly received attention from numerous schools. He reportedly chose Georgia over interest from Oregon, Oklahoma State, Florida and many others. He is not listed in On3’s Transfer Portal Rankings.

Roberts was under recruited coming out of Believe Prep (NY), which prompted him to go the junior college route. While playing at Florida Southwestern State, Roberts broke the school record for career steals with 122 across two seasons. He also finished third in the school’s history in career assists (214) and eighth in career points scored (524). Heading into his junior season, he received more than 15 Division I offers including from North Texas, UAB and Wichita State.

This transfer is the first for Terry Roberts from an NCAA program. He has one year of eligibility remaining, plus a COVID year.
