Preps: Bucs standout Roehn commits to South Florida

Berkeley Prep standout T.J. Roehn has committed to South Florida to continue his soccer career, joining his Clearwater Chargers teammate and Palm Harbor University standout Ben Sweat in committing to the Bulls.

Roehn had narrowed his choices to USF, Villanova and Pittsburgh, but after visiting with the Bulls recently he decided that staying in Tampa was the right choice for him.

“USF has always been really good, and I wanted to play for a team that has good facilities and has had a good history,” Roehn said.

According to Roehn, the Bulls showed interest in him from the first day they were allowed to make contact with him, and he has appreciated the advice given to him by USF coach George Kiefer.

“He’s always been very honest with me,” Roehn said. “USF was one of the first teams to call me on the first day they could call their recruits. They’ve always been very interested, and I’ve only heard good things about them.

“I believe (USF) will get a national championship soon, so that’s what I’m looking to do.”

Roehn scored 26 goals and added 21 assists as the Buccaneers reached the Class 3A state championship game a season ago.
