The Syracuse Orange now have five extremely-talented players to call its Class of 2013. Joining Ron Patterson, Tyler Ennis, B.J. Johnson, Chinonso Obokoh at SU next season will be Roselle Catholic's Tyler Roberson, a four-star forward from Union, N.J.

Roberson chose Syracuse over Kansas and Villanova Friday night on ESPNU's basketball signing day show.

"They're going into the ACC next year which is gonna be a really good conference," Roberson said by way of explaining his choice. "And Coach Boeheim is like one of the best coaches in college basketball and they're just a really good college team."

Here's what CBSSports.com has to say about the 6'7" forward:

Ranked No. 37 in the class of 2013, Roberson has developed into a matchup problem for most opponents. He has very good length and athleticism, and he has continued to improve his all-around game. Roberson became a more consistent perimeter shooter during the spring and summer, and he is also able to post up smaller defenders. His ability on the glass is also impressive.

And then this sounds pretty good, too.

Syracuse's recruiting class was already considered Top 25 before Roberson (ESPN has it all the way up at No. 7) and it'll move up from there. The class also has a player for every position, with Roberson taking the power forward spot.

Now it's time to figure out a name for these five fine fellows. The Frigid Five? The Will Never Play A Road Game Again Five? You've got three guys who have "-son" in their last name...Our Three Sons? We've got two Tylers...Tyler Twofer? Leave your critical thoughts below.
