Missoula’s Roberts Gets Ready For Draft
Ben Roberts has had a busy past couple of months.
The three-sport star obliterated most of the state receiving records this fall as a member of Sentinel’s football team.
Then in the winter, Roberts chose to forgo his senior season of high school basketball to allow an injury to completely heal.
And so far this spring, Roberts has been wowing professional scouts and coaches alike with his ability on the baseball diamond.
When the Major League Baseball Draft begins tonight, there’s a good chance that Roberts will be selected within the first five rounds, which would make him the top baseball prospect in the Montana history.
Now only the first round will actually take place tonight, so Roberts will likely hear his name called tomorrow morning sometime.
I will be covering the draft live over on KGVO’s official Facebook page beginning at 5 PM tonight and 10 AM tomorrow. Follow the conversation and keep up to date on when Roberts gets selected.
