The first official visit for Houston Spring Woods wide receiver/safety Russell Roberts was not far from home at SMU, but it looks like the 6-foot-2, 185-pound prospect is not ready to name a favorite.
Roberts will be taking more visits that include Tulane this weekend (Jan. 20) and Stephen F. Austin on Jan. 27.
"It was okay," Roberts said about his trip to SMU. "I got to hang out with the players, tour just about everything, and see a bunch of stuff around the campus. My host was Reynaldo Pellerin from Westfield. He was a cool guy."
Roberts had a favorite, but a coaching change has shifted his thought.
"Well, it was Rice," Roberts said about his top team. "I haven't talked to their new coach. They told me they'd offer me after I sent in my admissions paper because you have to be accepted their first. While that was happening, their coach resigned."
As for right now, Roberts says that a decision will come before Signing Day.
"I'll probably do it at the end of the month," he said. "I'm not sure exactly when it will be."
