Roberts makes his name known

San Antonio Madison offensive lineman George Roberts was one of the impressive linemen at the recent Nike Camp at Valley Ranch.

For spectators at the recent Dallas Nike Training Football Camp last Sunday, it didn't take long to notice San Antonio Madison offensive lineman George Roberts. The big lineman was one of the biggest prospects in attendance standing close to 6-foot-6, 280-pounds.

One drills began, Roberts showed good footwork and was considered one of the better linemen in at the prestigious event. That's not bad considering Roberts is just now coming into his own as a lineman.

Roberts didn't play much as a junior for Madison after he moved from Georgia, therefore more colleges are just now finding out about him. However, he has already made good impressions at the Army All-American Combine and now the Nike Camp and once spring ball starts and recruiters see him, his recruitment will likely take off.

Roberts liked the opportunity to compete against some of the best defensive lineman at the stacked Nike Camp.

"I liked it, I learned a lot of stuff that I think will help me better during the season and help my team better too," Roberts said. "I think I did pretty good, I was pretty proud of my work ethic."

Roberts says the advice he learned from the coaches will further improve his game.

"Just the way I do my kick step and change my footwork to make it better," Roberts said.

Although he doesn't hold an offer yet, Roberts has attended a junior day at Texas Tech and has plans to visit another program this week. He hopes to start garnering more interest from a few in-state programs.

"I'm going to the University of Houston next week," Roberts said. "I would like to hear from Texas and Baylor."

TCU has shown interest in two of Roberts' teammates; Vincent Taylor and Marquis Warford. Although the Frogs haven't shown interest in him just yet, he'd like to hear from the Frogs.

"I definitely wouldn't mind hearing from the Horned Frogs," Roberts said.
