While he isn’t even through his sophomore year at South Beloit High School (IL), Ross Robertson has already made a tremendous impact. As only a freshman last season, Robertson was named special mention all-state by the IBCA and was a big piece of his team capturing a regional championship.

Now into his sophomore season, the 6’8” power forward is averaging a double-double with 23 points and 14 boards leading South Beloit to a 24-5 record currently. Even though he hasn’t completed his sophomore season, Robertson has already eclipsed the 1,000-point mark earlier this season back in January. 

“I feel I have the ability to handle the ball, stretch the floor and make three’s as well as playing with my back to the basket,” Robertson said to describe his own game. Even at 6’8”, he is one of the more skilled 2025 big men in the state. There are few underclassmen big men that have his versatile skill set and ability to score from all over the floor. As well to improving his overall game, one aspect he is focusing in on improving is becoming a more vocal player. While it is still very early in the sophomore’s recruitment, some division one programs have already started showing interest in the power forward. 

South Beloit and Robertson will get started in the Illinois state tournament next Wednesday versus the winner of Polo and Somonauk on their home floor. Following his sophomore season, Robertson will be suiting up for MTXE Premier.
