Less than a week ago Terriek Roberts gained an offer from the University of Colorado and today he called Buffalo Head Coach Mike MacIntyre to make his verbal commit. Initially Colorado was slow to come around on the big two way lineman, but Roberts impressed at camp working as a defensive end getting the MacIntyre and staff on board.
Originally Roberts had planned on waiting until the end of this upcoming season to make his decision but the lure of playing in state was too much for the 6-6 265 pound lineman to pass on. Talking about making his commit Roberts stated, “I just feel like I want to prove to the nation that Colorado athletes are slept on and what better way to do it than staying in state.” Further, Roberts says, “Just felt like Colorado was a good fit.”
In Roberts the Buffs are gaining an athletic giant that has the willingness to put in the work to be successful at the next level. Roberts feels his hard work this offseason has allowed him to improve his lateral movement and quickness. About what he brings to the Colorado football program Roberts says, “I feel like I bring a physical hard working guy that will help them win games.”
Roberts chose Colorado over offers from schools including Arizona State, Colorado State, Kansas, Nevada, Wyoming, San Diego State and Utah State.
