SoCal RB sees offers rise

It has been an established fact that the Golden State has an abundance of running backs for the class of 2010. One of them is Cameron Roberson (6-1, 215, 4.55) from Newbury Park, Calif. The talented running back has seen his offers climb to three with another one pending.
"The offers are starting to come," Newbury Park offensive coordinator Keith Smith said. "BYU was the first school offer and that was quickly followed with an offer today. Arizona offered yesterday (Wednesday February 25th) and Washington coach Steve Sarkisian is supposed to offer today (Thursday February 26th)."
"Cameron is working his tail off in the weight room and the classroom," Smith said. "He's up to 215 and I don't think he's even 17 years old yet."
"What is so impressive about Cameron is, he's so big," Smith said. "He gets down field and punishes tacklers."
"Cameron has excellent lateral movement and he has that start and stop ability that coaches look for," Smith said. "His change of direction is really amazing for someone of his size."
"Notre Dame is also looking at him and that's another thing that's special about him," Smith said. "He is carrying a 3.7 GPA in AP classes and even though he is working really hard on football, he has kept his grades up."
Roberson earned first-team all-county and was League Offensive Player of the Year as a junior after rushing for 1,452 yards and 18 touchdowns with a long of 69 yards. He was also outstanding catching the football out of the backfield. He ended up with 29 receptions for 279 yards and three more touchdowns.
That Roberson was a first-team all-county performer is a statement in itself since he played in the same county with Notre Dame bound running back Cierre Wood, and fellow 2010 running back standout Malcolm Jones of Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian.
