RECRUITING: Gators' interest in Roberts wanes

Orlando Edgewater defensive back Tyller Roberts did not take an official visit to the University of Florida this past weekend. We called to see if he'll be taking a visit at all before national signing day.

"I haven't heard from the coaches at Florida lately, so I don't know," Roberts said. "I suppose they're not interested in me anymore. That's okay. It's a business and I know the business. I think they have some guy out of Carolina they're recruiting."

Roberts earned first team All-State honors and picked off a pair of passes in the CaliFlorida All-Star Game in Miami four weeks ago. The 6-1, 190-pound corner/free safety was hopeful of a Florida visit. With the Gators apparently out of the picture, Roberts choices have now become limited.

"I'll decide between North Carolina State and South Florida" he said. "I haven't committed anywhere yet though. I'll make my decision in the next few days."

GATOR COUNTRY TAKE: Florida cooled on Tyller Roberts suddenly, so perhaps there are more highly rated players on the Florida board who stepped up their interest or maybe some other issues. Florida had an interest in Roberts along with his teammates Quentin Brown and Matt Hardrick, but now it appears only Hardrick is still on the Florida board.
