Derick Roberson is expected to be Texas' next dominant defensive end.

Quarterback Jerrod Heard has drawn most of the headlines, but it is defensive end Derick Roberson who arrives as Texas' top-rated recruit of its 2014 class. 

Heard's redshirt becomes more likely with every development in the Max Wittek story, so Roberson will be the recruit fans expect to make the early splash.

Normally known for their defensive backs, the Longhorns have done a great job of churning out defensive ends like Brian Orakpo, Alex Okafor and Jackson Jeffcoat. A 4-star recruit from San Antonio, Roberson will look to follow in their footsteps when he arrives this summer.

When that day comes, Roberson has some work to do before becoming an impact player for the Longhorns. But once he begins to realize his considerable potential, he will be well on his way to becoming the program's next great pass-rusher.
