As active as he was on the field making tackles, Roberts was just as busy getting from college to college for both camps and visits.
"Last summer I went to camp at Iowa State, Wisconsin, Northwestern, Illinois, Notre Dame, Minnesota, and finally again at Iowa State. I visited Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa State twice all for game day visits."
The Golden Gophers started off the unofficial visits for Roberts and set a high bar for the others to match.
"Minnesota was great, it was my first recruiting trip so I did not know what to expect, but I had a lot of fun."
As for Madison, Roberts said, "Wisconsin was a blast as well. After the game I got to go into the locker room and speak with Coach Buh, who I had met at camp this summer. Unfortunately he took a job at California, but I will be trying to contact him there as soon as I can."
Then there were the two visits to Iowa State, where Roberts says the Cyclones really rolled out the red carpet.
"I felt the most at home at Iowa State. I knew many people on the coaching staff from this summer and, especially on my second trip, they treated me like part of the family. "
This off-season will be more of the same, as Roberts looks to again fill his calendar with camps in hopes of earning scholarship opportunities.
"This summer I plan on returning to Iowa State, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Northwestern for camp. I also am thinking of going to Iowa, Nebraska, and possibly California. I will not be attending any Junior days this spring. I have been invited to several, but I will be wrestling in the conference tournament on the weekend that most of them are being held. I am training to win the state tournament this February, which I believe I have a great shot at doing."
Roberts earned 1st team All-State as voted by the Wisconsin Football Coaches Association this year.
