Roberson still committed

Called Lawrence Central coach Jayson West to talk about Friday’s semistate game against Bloomington North. We were talking about his quarterback, Tre Roberson, so I asked if Roberson was still committed to Indiana.

“As far as I know,” West said.

West said that Roberson has a “great relationship” with the coaching staff, but also said teenagers are prone to changing their minds. He also said Roberson may visit other schools once the season is over.

In 13 games this season, Roberson is 125-of-206 passing for 2,366 yards with 21 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He also has 1,717 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns on 230 carries.

Roberson has to be considered the leader for Mr. Football.

“I think he is the man,” West said. “I can’t see anybody with better numbers or a more significant impact on his team.”


  1. IU is missing out on a far better quarterback in Evansville Reitz’s Matt McIntosh. But hey, who would want to play for Lynch!

  2. He’s already commited to Northern Illinois, and Lynch isn’t enough of a dirt bag to try and steal another team’s recruit.

  3. It seems like the only time IU has been consistently successful in the post-Mallory era is when we’ve fielded a dual-thread QB – Randle-El & Kellen Lewis. Roberson could be the next.

  4. The very top people in the Athletic Department, following all the NCAA RULES, need to be in contact with all 21 of IU’s football recruits and the 5-6 others we are still going after, to reassure them and to build up confidence in IU Football. The rumors will be nasty out there in the recruiting world.

  5. scb, I take it you haven’t seen McIntosh play. You just might reconsider your opinion who the better qb is.
