Mesquite Horn (TX) standout Reggie Roberson, who announced his commitment on Monday night, has signed his National Letter of Intent and will be making his way to Morgantown, West Virginia this summer.

The 6’-0”, 180lb wide-out hauled in 60 passes for 1057 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior for the Horn Jaguars. Roberson’s size, combined with his above-average speed and ability to make adjustments to the ball, makes him the perfect inside receiver in Dana Holgorsen’s offense. Roberson is also a threat on kickoff and punt returns, and will likely make an impact on special teams early in his collegiate career.

With West Virginia’s depth at the receiver spot, Roberson will most likely redshirt his true freshman season, but should find himself in a Daikeil Shorts-type role when he finally sees the field for the Mountaineers.

Roberson chose the Mountaineers over Utah, Illinois and Washington State, among others.
