Rutgers Football Recruiting: Commit Alert! Deonte Roberts

David Butler II-US PRESSWIRE

Rutgers landed its 13th 2015 commit in Brooklyn Linebacker Deonte Roberts.

Rutgers picked up a verbal commitment from Erasmus Hall (Brooklyn) linebacker Deonte Roberts.  Roberts received his offer after visiting yesterday.  After taking the night to sleep on his decision, he called Kyle Flood to tell him the good news.

Roberts is 6'2" and 205 pounds. He projects to the WILL (weakside linebacker) position, but with some time in the weightroom, could move inside. Roberts participated in the Knights skills camp last weekend, and impressed the staff.  Roberts held offers from UCF and Boston College, and was receiving a lot of attention from Syracuse and UConn.

Roberts is a hard hitter with good burst and a knack for knocking footballs loose.  Linebackers/Special Teams Coach Bob Fraser has been receuiting Roberts hard since the 2013 season ended.

Welcome to Rutgers, Deonte!
