Cameron Roberson (6-foot-1, 215-pounds) was looking forward to meeting Brian Kelly, but he wasn't sure what he'd hear from Notre Dame's new head coach. Kelly and Notre Dame's tight ends coach Mike Denbrock made an in-home visit with Cameron at the beginning of January and Roberson was more than satisfied with what the coaches communicated with him.
"I've been talking to coach Denbrock," Roberson responded when asked about his contact with Notre Dame. "Coach Kelly and coach Denbrock came out to visit two weeks ago. They came to my school and we talked mainly about that he still thinks Notre Dame is the right place for me to go and it's still a great fit.
"He thinks I fit real well into his spread offense system, being that I can run the ball, block and catch the ball out of the backfield. We went over a lot of the offense, and he reiterated how things would go after signing day.
"I was very excited to hear what he had to say, because that's exactly how I'm used in high school," he said. "I was really impressed and excited, because I think it's a great fit. I think I'll fit right into the offense."
Not only did Roberson like what he had heard from coach Kelly about the offense, but he enjoyed getting to know his future head coach.
"He's exactly like what I've been hearing," Cameron explained. "He seems like the type of coach that can really pump up a team, he's energetic and lively. I think that will really help us out and I'm really excited to play for him."
Tim Hinton is Notre Dame's new running backs coach, and while Roberson hasn't met his future position coach, he has had a chance to speak with him.
"I've talked to the running backs coach, coach Hinton," Roberson said "But I haven't talked to him in person, just over the phone. He seemed like a really great guy, I really liked him, and I'm really looking forward to meeting him."
Roberson has had some schools inquire about his recruiting status. To each inquiry, Roberson has confirmed his commitment to the Irish.
