Kayne Roberts Commits to UNC Football

Tenn. athlete became a Tar Heel on Saturday evening.

Kayne Roberts didn't hesitate to jump at the opportunity to play at North Carolina.

The Greenback (Tenn.) standout committed to the Tar Heels on Saturday immediately after receiving the offer - his first from a Power-5 conference program.

Roberts, a 6-3, 200-pound player that the UNC staff recruited as an athlete, visited Chapel Hill a month ago. He attended UNC's camp during the summer. 

His high school career came to a conclusion on Friday as Greenback lost in the state championship game for the second straight season. Roberts, the state's runner-up for Class 1A Mr. Football, was the team's star running back.

He rushed for 1,441 yards as a sophomore at Madisonville (Tenn.) Sequoyah before transferring to Greenback.
