The senior from Charlotte Country Day School (N.C.) also had offers from Ball State, Elon, Western Carolina and Dartmouth.

"I couldn't be more happy. That's where I wanted to go to school. I committed on the spot," Roberts told CUTigers shortly after school.

Swinney called Roberts' parents on Tuesday and said there was a greyshirt offer on the table. He accepted on the spot, and committed when his folks delivered the news during lunch.

"I know it's where I wanted to go to school, greyshirt offer or normal offer—whatever. I felt like it was the right fit. I think everything will work out with being a greyshirt," Roberts said. "My friend, Stanton Seckinger, he's going to be a greyshirt. We'll go at it together and figure it out. It's where I want to be."

Roberts called his good friend, Colton Walls, a fellow Clemson commit, after committing.

"I called him at lunch, right after I found out. He was real excited. I guess we'll go through this together, too," he said. "It's nice to have some folks to go through this together with."

Though he and offensive coordinator Chad Morris have not spoken, Roberts has a pretty good idea what to expect.

"I've watched Tulsa. They do a lot of running, some up-tempo stuff. It's no huddle. I think I'd fit well with that. I'm excited to run, I'm excited to learn and get to work," he said.

They'll meet for the first-time this weekend when Roberts is in Clemson for his official visit.

"That's the thing I'm excited about, getting to sit down with him and talk about how he wants his offense run, just some details about it," Roberts said.

As a senior, he threw for 1,900 yards and 22 touchdowns. He also rushed for nearly 800 yards and scored 14 times on the ground. Top Stories
