Roberson Is Waiting on the Word

The linebacker from Ventura St. Bonaventure, Dwight Roberson, a first-team All-State selection, has two official visits lined up for the last two available weekends in January, but those plans could change...

Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure linebacker Dwight Roberson (6-1, 215), has two official visits scheduled for this month, but may change those if he is asked to take an official visit to UCLA.

"Right now I'm scheduled to visit Oregon State and then Boston College," said Roberson. "If UCLA has me take a trip, then I might take a trip there instead of one of those schools."

Roberson is set to visit Oregon State next weekend (14th and 15th), then the following weekend (21st and 22nd) he will be at Boston College. However, if UCLA does in fact have him take an official visit, he won't have enough weekends remaining, with the following weekend (28th and 29th) being a dead period leading into Signing Day.

For now, among the schools who have offered, Roberson said Oregon State and Boston College are his top two schools, with Oregon State leading. "They are barely leading over Boston College, mainly because it's closer to home," said Roberson.

Roberson spoke with UCLA assistant coach Jim Svoboda early last week and Svoboda told him to sit tight and they could be making a move. "If UCLA were to offer me, that would change things up. First of all, it's even closer to home, and they were one of my main schools from the beginning," said Roberson.

Washington State is the only other school that has offered Roberson.

A guest at a handful of UCLA games this season, Roberson finished off a prolific senior year in fine fashion, being named a First Team all-State selection at linebacker, recording 120 tackles, three interceptions, four sacks and a blocked punt, a year after recording 174 tackles as a junior.

He also helped lead St. Bonaventure to its second straight CIF Southern Section title, as well as the No. 1 ranking in the final state poll.

Academically, Roberson is fully qualified.
