Cornerback Talks Commitment

We caught back up with this Juco DB to get the latest on what led up to his decision. The Bobcats will look for him to replace a key departing senior as he arrives to campus in January.

Javante O'Roy is a 6'1 185-pound DB who has the speed (4.46) and hard hitting ability to play both the Cornerback and Safety positions. O'Roy is the 23rd commitment for the 2015 class and was the third pledge on what was a very busy Sunday for Texas State recruiting.

"I flew in for my visit this Friday, and it went really well. As soon as I arrived on campus I could tell it was a special place. I love the environment and both the players and coaching staff were really cool to me," said O'Roy.

Javonte chose Texas State over South Alabama and Western Georgia, while also fielding interest from UNLV, Utah State, and Sacramento State. He will be a January transfer and has three years left to play two.

"I feel like I have a good relationship with the coaching staff, and I really want to be a part of establishing a tradition here at Texas State," said O'Roy on why he chose the Bobcats.

O'Roy is expected to come in and compete immediately for a starting job, most likely at corner, with the departure of Craig Mager. His versatility and ball hawking ability will serve him well in his hunt for a starting job in the season to come.
