"I figured I would do it while I was there and I did about a half an hour ago," Roberts said. "I met with the defensive coach (Paul Rhoades) and I told him and then I met with Dave Wannstedt and I told him that I wanted to come there."
Roberts was paired up with another Eastern Pennsylvania product in freshman Tyler Tkach.
"He was great and all the players were great reall," Roberts explained. "All the players were really friendly it wasn't like they treated you any different because you were the new guy or a young guy they all acted like a team and that sold me."
Roberts, who is a solid student was impressed with what the Panthers offered academically.
"We went to the academic center and I really like the way they had everything laid out and organized."
Roberts also noted that he is going to be coming into Pitt as a (WILL) linebacker.
