OKPreps.net: Roberson Holding Offers…

The Union Redskins will have to replace a lot of talent off of the '08 State Championship squad. But they will return playmaker Thomas Roberson, who already holds two major scholarship offers.

Thomas Roberson, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound wide receiver from Union High in Tulsa, Okla., is still beaming about winning the Golden Ball and beating bitter rival Jenks in the State Championship game.

"It was a dream come true," Roberson stated. "Watching the previous teams when I was coming up, watching them win state and then getting there and not quite pulling it off my sophomore year was kind of a disappointment. So winning state was a dream come true."

Roberson was able to rack up over 600 yards and score eight touchdowns in '08 despite missing some time due to an injury.

"I actually tore all of the ligaments in my right thumb, so that kept me out for five weeks and then I had to with a brace on it for the whole rest of the season, and it is still not better."

With a solid combination of size and speed there is no wonder schools are starting to line up to try and secure is signature on a letter of intent.

"I have been offered by TU and Stanford with some pretty good interest from Kansas State and Texas Tech," Roberson informed. "Basically all of the Big 12 schools and a couple of the SEC schools."

The offer from Stanford grabbed his attention.

"I was kind of shocked about the Stanford offer at first," Roberson began. "On signing day they just called my coach and told them I had an offer."

"Right then my mom was like we are going out there to check it out. Because she always preaches to me that the first thing is academics and with a degree from a school like Stanford it is a job waiting to happen. I am pretty excited about that because it is going to be a big part of my decision."

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have yet to offer, but seems to be on both program's radars.

"I went to OU and OSU's junior days and talked with the offensive coordinator a little bit at OU and I talked with the wide receiver coach at OSU a little bit."

Roberson attended and starred in the Badger Sports/New Level 7v7 passing tournament in Las Vegas earlier this month, but he is uncertain of what team camps he will be attending this spring/summer.

"I might go down to the OSU one day camp," Roberson said. "It really just depends because I am going to run summer track this year. If it does not conflict with summer track then I will try to go to a lot more camps this year."

Note: Thomas' twin brother James Roberson is also a highly recruited D1 athlete that is receiving a lot of interest and holds an offer from Tulsa.
