Dallas Bishop Dunne saw one of its players seemingly come out of nowhere last month when defensive tackle Alex Norman was offered by Texas and quickly committed. The Falcons have more prospects in addition to the big defender, though.
Wide receiver Braelon Roberts looks to be the next Bishop Dunne standout in line for an offer. The 6-foot-5, 170-pound junior is a standout on both the gridiron and basketball court but his future is clearly in football. He is receiving interest from a number of colleges at this point.
"I've been hearing from a few schools," Roberts said. "I'm hearing from UNT, Louisiana Tech and UTSA as well as a few more."

Roberts feels the first offer could be coming soon with two schools seemingly close to extended ones.
"I'm going to Louisiana Tech's junior day this weekend," he said. "It's on Saturday. They said they're probably going to offer me. UNT said they're probably going to offer me too when I go to their camp."
Roberts has a lot of ties to the Louisiana Tech program and has heard a lot about the school from his coaching staff.
"We have a bunch of coaches that played at La Tech," he said. "Coach (Myron) Hawthorne, coach (Michael) Johnson and (Deleon) Williams all played there. I'm not sure if that's how I ended up on their radar but Stan Eggen has been writing me a lot from there."
Though it is still early in the process, the big receiver has a few schools currently atop his list.
"I haven't really heard much from them but I really like TCU," Roberts said. "I'd love to be able to go there. I'd say my top schools are TCU, La Tech and probably UNT. I think I'll have more options after going to some junior days and after we start spring ball next month. A bunch of coaches have said they're coming out to watch me.
"I'm probably not going to make a decision yet. I want to see what happens after spring ball and at camps this summer and then look at everything after that."
In ten games this past season Roberts tallied 46 receptions for 681 yards and nine touchdowns.
