ORLANDO, Fla. - Schools who didn't know about Somersville, Texas receiver Sam Roberson certainly will after the East Meets West All-American game.
Standing well over most high school cornerback prospects, at 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, Roberson was easy to spot both in practice at the game this past Saturday in Orlando. Now, he's just hoping his recruiting process picks up after getting his name on the map.
"At this time last year, I didn't have anybody looking at me," Roberson said. "In the last few months, a lot of coaches are calling me. There aren't any offers yet, but TCU, Arizona, Texas A&M, and some other schools have been showing me interest."
At one time, the Aggies were the school to beat for his commitment with an offer. Now, it appears there is a little competition.
"A&M, they're still up there, but I really like TCU now too," Roberson said. "TCU has kept in touch with me this past fall a lot."
Roberson says that whoever offers first won't receive an immediate commitment. He'll look at all options before making his decision.
The East Meets West appearance certainly helped not only his exposure but also prepared him for the next level of football.
"It's a little harder out here because the competition is strong," Roberson said about the East Meets West game. "I've had to show that I can be more of a deep route runner than people think .I've got some moves. I'm probably not as quick as the short guys, but I still can make people miss."
