When you bring a frame like 6-foot-6, 200-pound quarterback Justin Roper possesses and a strong arm, the offers are going to come if you can show off your abilities.
In an effort to show off those skills that he had trouble with during his high school season, Roper attended a camp schedule that was extremely loaded. He took in Tennessee, Maryland, Virginia, Duke, Clemson, and South Carolina. If that wasn't enough, he's taking in the Auburn camp this weekend to add to the list.
"Man, I went to so many camps this summer," Roper said about his constant traveling. "It paid off though definitely. The real turning point though was the Elite 11 workout and the Athens NIKE camp. I came in there and really had a good weekend.
Illinois has verbally offered and while Roper is expecting the written version very soon, he already holds scholarships from Duke, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Oregon, and Tulane. He has yet to name any true leaders.
"There's not top five, no favorites, I'm completely wide open right now," Roper said. "A lot of schools have been talking to me about all sorts of things so I'm weighing it all out. North Carolina said I could come in there and play four years and Maryland's offense is a lot like ours so I could fit in there."
Many coaches will also be watching Roper's senior season.
"I'm going to try to make a decision as early as I can but some schools are going to wait to see me play before they offer," he said. "A couple of schools also have offered but they had quarterbacks sign like Maryland. I'll probably play a few games and maybe things will open up again."
