Willie Roberts Update

Former Miami Southridge tight end Willie Roberts is currently at Northeast Oklahoma A&M Junior College. At 6-7 and 230, Roberts was scheduled to arrive back in Miami this past Friday, as his summer school was completed in Oklahoma. Here is an update on where he may play next season.

"Willie decided to stay out in Oklahoma," she said. "He needs to get used to being away from home. He's been back about three times already since he went out there and it's expensive to keep flying him back and forth."

I then asked her when I can expect Willie to be back in Miami.

"He'll probably come here in December," she said. "That'll be for Christmas because he doesn't finish school out there until May."

She then offered up some interesting insight on his decision-making process.

"He's coming home in December, but I don't think he's coming to school back here," she said. "I asked him that the other day and he told me that he's changed his mind and that he'll be going to the University of Oklahoma beginning next August. He's gotten to know some boys out there, but I really don't know what Willie's going to do. That's what he told me the other day."
