Sunday's dismissal of head coach Bill Lynch by Indiana University has created a period of uncertainty for those prospects committed to and considering the Hoosiers. Indianapolis (Ind.) Lawrence Central quarterback Tre Roberson is one of those Indiana commits considering his future.
"Right now I am just looking, trying to see what is going on and what's going to be the best decision for me," Roberson said. "I'm waiting to talk with my parents. I haven't been able to sit down and talk to them about it yet, but I plan to do that this week."
The 6-1, 170-pound Roberson has been solidly committed to Indiana since April. He was not, however, expecting Lynch to be let go.

"I was shocked... I didn't know it was coming," Roberson said. "They had beaten Purdue, so I thought they would give him another year or something, but I guess it doesn't work like that."
At this stage, Roberson said he would probably see where Indiana goes for their next head coach, listen to what other schools are saying and go from there. Several schools have shown interest in Roberson over the course of the last week.
"I guess coaches were allowed to come on the road this week, so a couple of them have started to show up and show interest but they are not putting a lot into it because I am committed," Roberson said. "Louisville came yesterday and Toledo and Purdue came today."
Roberson is ranked as the No. 11 prospect in the state of Indiana for the 2011 class. This fall he led Lawrence Central to the Indiana Class 5A state title game, where they lost to Fishers by a final of 38-19.
Roberson put up exceptional numbers at quarterback this season, throwing for 2,600 yards and 28 touchdowns and rushing for an additional 1,900 yards and 21 scores.
