Bruins In On Roberts

The Bellevue (Wash.) offensive tackle, Henry Roberts, holds an offer from UCLA...

Bellevue (Wash.) offensive lineman Henry Roberts (6-6, 263), is the top prospect in Washington in the 2015 class and his offer sheet reflects one of the elite prospects regionally.

Roberts has offers from 11 of the 12 Pac-12 schools, California the most recent offer, and this weekend, he'll visit the one school, Stanford, that hasn't offered.

"I'm going down to Stanford on Thursday so I'm looking forward to that visit," said Roberts. "We'll see what happens."

Aside from the Pac-12 schools, Roberts is hearing from a number of SEC schools, but said that two Pac-12 schools are recruiting him the hardest.

"I'd say USC and Washington are recruiting me the hardest," said Roberts.

Washington was his first offer, during his sophomore year, that staff, led by Steve Sarkisian, now at USC, and they offered him as soon as they got to Los Angeles.

And new head coach Chris Petersen made sure that the Huskies reiterated that offer to Roberts and have been recruiting him aggressively too.

"UCLA and Oregon are also recruiting me pretty hard too," said Roberts.  "I know Coach (Jim) Mora at UCLA and obviously Myles (Jack) is there too."

Roberts said he doesn't see a decision coming early.

"I'm pretty wide open right now," said Roberts. "My plan is to play for Bellevue this next year, then after I'm done playing for Bellevue, I'll then worry about my visits and where I want to go."

An early selection to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, the third straight year the Wolverines have a player headed to San Antonio (Budda Baker in 2014, Myles Jack in 2013), Roberts said a decision wouldn't come until after that game.

Roberts said all of his offers are as an offensive tackle.
