2010 Intro: Cameron Roberson

The Newbury Park (Calif.) running back, Cameron Roberson, has a half-dozen offers and plenty of schools visiting, including UCLA and he talks about his time frame and what the spring could bring...

Newbury Park (Calif.) running back Cameron Roberson (6-1, 218), is sitting on six offers, but there are indications that more offers could be coming soon.

"So far, I've been offered by Arizona, Washington, BYU, Wyoming, Northwestern and Minnesota," said Roberson. "They've all offered me as a running back. And I've been talking to Cal, and still Notre Dame. I should know something from Notre Dame the end of this month. UCLA is coming down to watch my spring practice next week. I'm not sure if they'll offer but they seem to like me. I'm also looking to hear more from Oregon."

Several coaches have stopped by the Ventura County school in the last few weeks, with several more indicating they will be coming through.

"Northwestern was there on Monday, Arizona was there last Friday, and then Cal, Utah, Fresno State and Villanova have been by in the last two weeks. And my coach said UCLA and USC were here earlier too."

Roberson and the Panthers started spring ball on Monday, so he said coaches have told him they want to come back out to watch their spring workouts. And he's starting to think about where his camp plans and unofficial visits during the later spring and summer will take him.

"I'm probably going to take a trip out to Northwestern and Arizona and I want to take a trip to Washington and Cal. I've been to the UCLA and USC campuses already. I'll probably also go to the Arizona camp too," said Roberson.

So far, three schools are standing out for Roberson.

"My top three are Washington, Northwestern and Arizona," said Roberson. "My family is pretty open to wherever I go, they have the same top that I have. But they wouldn't mind if I stayed close to home."

And Roberson is hopeful that he hears more from the two Los Angeles schools.

"Yeah, they're both supposed to be coming back by so we'll see what happens with them," said Roberson.

Roberson has targeted before his senior season to make his decision.

"More than likely, I want to make a decision by the end of the summer," said Roberson.

Academically, Roberson has a 3.2 GPA and will take the SAT in June.

As a 2008 junior, Roberson ran for 1,452 yards on 226 carries and scored 18 touchdowns and had 29 receptions for 279 yards and three more scores.
