Michigan Football: Austin Roberts Wanting an Offer Is Good News for Michigan

Colan LamontAnalyst IIAugust 6, 2012

According to Todd Worly of 247sports.com, wide receiver Roberts is expecting a dream offer from Michigan very soon.

At 6'2" and 210 lbs., the 2014 prospect already has the size of a number one receiver in college football.

Roberts told Worly, " They're awesome I like teams that win. I like the tradition they have, and I love the Ohio State-Michigan rivalry."

Roberts already has several big offers from teams like Florida, Stanford and Miami (FL) among others.

Iowa also seems to be enticing to Roberts as Worly reports that his teammate and Hawkeye commit John Kenny is selling Iowa very well.

Roberts went as far to say that he will travel to see an Iowa dame during the upcoming season.

Roberts missed the football BBQ because of illness but Worly still believes an offer for Roberts will be coming very soon.

It's likely the offer will come the first time Roberts lands in Ann Arbor which should be soon considering he has made it clear he wants to visit.

Roberts is from Florida but moved to Carmel, Indianapolis.

Michigan Tremendous interviewed Roberts and he described himself as a "possession receiver."

Now that Roberts is based in Indiana, it should be easy for him to visit Michigan and fans will love his physical, gritty style of play.

It's rare to see many interviews in which a young player constantly mentions the pride he takes in blocking so it's refreshing to see the maturity Roberts has.

Roberts has also been projected as a tight end at the next level but unless he has a big growth spurt, at 6'2", I think he is a receiver.

That being said, he has been reported to weigh as much as 220 lbs. and that is pretty big for a sophomore wide receiver in high school.

His father Alfredo Roberts is a former NFL tight end and current assistant to the Indianapolis Colts.

I'd imagine this means his dad will know what to look out for when researching the different teams his son has offers from.

And with great academics, rich tradition and coaching staff with seemingly good values, you'd have to think Roberts will love Michigan and hopefully compliment LaQuon Treadwell in a few years time.
