With two offers already on the table, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., receiver David Roberts was hoping to make some trips this summer and impress even more people. He did just that this past Sunday at Arizona's elite one-day camp.
It was in Tucson, Ariz., that the 6-foot, 174-pound receiver impressed the Wildcat coach staff enough to walk away with another offer. This one is only an oral offer at this point, because the Wildcats couldn't officially offer him on campus because of NCAA rules, but Roberts said that a written one should be in the mail soon.
"I worked hard and got really prepared for the camp," Roberts, who also had offers from Colorado State and Idaho on the table, said. "The preparation allowed me to go out there and have a really good day. I felt good about how I performed. I felt it was one of my best efforts.
"I talked to my area recruiting coach Mike Canales, and he told me that Mike Stoops wanted to talk to me. I went and then talked to coach Stoops and he told me about the offer then. He told me an offer would be in the mail."
So what does the offer from the Pac 10 program mean?
"It definitely is impressive," Roberts said. "They're right at the top of the list as one of my top schools, but I don't know if I would say I had a leader. I really liked the school, the education there is really good and I also liked the people, too. They were all really nice people, and I liked what I saw."
As far as other summer camp plans, at this point Roberts isn't sure what his future holds. Other schools showing him heavy interest are Duke, Stanford, Northwestern, UCLA and Washington.
Roberts earned all-league honors as a junior. He had 26 receptions for 533 yards and four scores. He also had 40 tackles on defense and one interception.
