No Regrets For Roberts

Auburn commitment Stephen Roberts talks about his Iron Bowl experience and gives his thoughts on Gus Malzahn and the Tigers.

Opelika, Ala.--Making the decision to flip his commitment from Alabama to Auburn following a visit to Jordan-Hare Stadium to witness the Tigers take down Georgia on Nick Marshall's touchdown pass to Ricardo Louis, four-star cornerback Stephen Roberts was once again on hand to watch Gus Malzahn's team last weekend. This time it was against Alabama in the Iron Bowl.

In the stands to see Chris Davis return a missed field goal 109 yards for the winning touchdown to propel to the Tigers to the SEC Championship Game, Roberts says it was an amazing experience and only confirmed his decision to become a Tiger.

"It's not really about words," Roberts tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I was just excited. I'm glad I made the right decision to switch over. I'm pretty excited for both moments."

"It's super exciting to see them come back from a losing season," he adds. "It's just really exciting. I'm so glad I made the decision."

Taking in just about every home game for Auburn this season despite his commitment to Alabama, Roberts has seen the rise of the program in the span of just three months. Starting the season as an afterthought in the Southeastern Conference, the Tigers are now one win away from being conference champions. Roberts says it all starts with the head coach.

"It shows me that he's a man of his word," Roberts says of Malzahn. "He's smart. He's about the smartest coach I have seen. It just means a lot to be coached by a great coach."

Now firmly on the Auburn bandwagon, Roberts has taken on the role of recruiter for the Tigers along with longtime commitments such as Tre Williams, DeShaun Davis, Stanton Truitt, Nick Ruffin and others. With committed players such as Kalvaraz Bessent, Dontavius Russell and several others on hand for the game along with uncommitted standouts like Rashaan Evans, Roberts says that a game like Saturday can only help moving forward in the 2014 class.

"I think most of them are probably going to flip soon," Roberts says. "I sure hope so. This was a big game, especially coming against Alabama. I think they're going to flip."
