"Stanford has everything I could want in an athletic program and the academics are outstanding," Roberts said. "The weather there is great and I can see myself living there for awhile."
Stanford gets the complete package as a football player with Roberts. He has the size D-I schools like in a modern wide receiver, and good speed and obviously as a Cardinal commit the grades to get in any college in the nation.
Roberts chose Stanford over his final top five schools that were Cal (offer), Oregon (offer), USC and Notre Dame. He also had scholie offers from Arizona, Oregon State, Washington, Washington State and Colorado.
As a junior, Roberts hauled in 15 receptions for 183 yards and two touchdowns. He was downright lethal as a kick returner, racking up 588 return yards, on 18 attempts, for an average of 32.7 yards per kick while returning three kicks to the house. He also returned two punts for 44 yards.
Roberts was good enough to earn second-team all-league in one of the toughest league's in the CIF Southern Section.
