One to Watch: Malik Roberson

Running back Malik Roberson

Gardena (Calif.) Serra running back Malik Roberson may only be a 2015 prospect, but he has made quite the statement on the field this season...

For some high school teams, it's easy to pick out potential Division-1 prospects. At Gardena (Calif.) Serra, a team that consistently puts out Division-1 talent, including the current dynamic USC receiving duo of Marqise Lee and Robert Woods, talent is abundant.

Though multiple players on the team hold offers, 2015 running back Malik Roberson has still found a way to stand out on the field.

"I want to make sure we keep our running game on top. We are a strong football team and we will keep playing Serra football," he said.

Through the first twelve games of the season, Roberson has rushed for 1071 yards and three touchdowns on 94 carries, making him the team's leading rusher. He has also racked up an additional 91 yards and a touchdown on seven receptions.

"I never stop my feet. I keep the power moving, get in the hole. I have to keep improving every week. That's the only way to do it. Get better at one thing one week, have to get better at something else the next. It's been helping me this season," he said.

Playing college football is a dream for the 5-foot-6, 170-pound prospect, who uses his height as an advantage on the field.

Though he hasn't started to receive interest from colleges quite yet, there are two football powerhouses who have his attention.

"I really like Oregon and Alabama. I like how they look and that they are both run schools. I like their line, I like how they block, I like their offense," he said.

Roberson and the Serra Cavaliers face West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade this Friday in the CIF Southern Section Finals.
