Roberson Receives First Offer

Cameron Roberson from Newbury Park High School in California recently received his first scholarship offer. The offer came from BYU, which contacted him this past weekend. Roberson recently sent out his film and is hoping to hear from many more schools as he starts his recruiting process in earnest. TBS caught up with Roberson to learn more about him and how he felt about his BYU offer.

"It's cool that they offered me, I'm excited about it," said Cameron Roberson. "I don't know much at all about BYU other than they're a Mormon school, but I'm hopeful to learn more."

Cameron Roberson is a 6-foot, 215-pound running back prospect from Newbury Park High School in Southern California. Roberson ran for 1,452 yards and 18 touchdowns last season, while catching the ball about 29 times for 279 yards and three touchdowns.

Roberson's best game may have come against Simi Valley, when he ran for 279 yards, or against Agoura, when he scored a career-best five touchdowns.

"I had a good year last year," said Roberson. "I think I'm very good at hitting the hole hard and getting a good feel for my blocks and what a defense is doing, and I get better and better as the game goes on."

Roberson also has the requisite speed for a player of his size, having ran a camp-timed 4.50 forty last summer. Although that time is plenty fast for any 6-foot, 215-pound high school athlete, Roberson feels he can improve upon that time this summer while at camps.

"I was timed at that time almost a year ago and I know that I can run faster than that," said Roberson. "I'm planning on attending a lot of national camps, some Nike camps and some others this summer, and hopefully I run a better time."

The first to notice Roberson's talent and potential were BYU coaches, who contacted him recently and quickly offered him a scholarship.

"Coach Lamb contacted my coach and then contacted me and gave me an offer," said Roberson. "Like I said, I don't know much about BYU, but I know they've had a good team in recent years. I like Coach Lamb and we'll have to learn more about them."

Roberson has also been recently contacted by Arizona, and after sending out his film to several schools, he's hopeful to field more offers.

"I'm just waiting to see what happens," said Roberson. "I really have no idea where I'm going to go or even want to go right now. We'll just see who offers me and then go from there. I'm grateful that BYU offered me and I'll definitely look closer at them and learn more, and hopefully I get some other offers here soon."
