Prospect: Stephen Roberts
Vitals: 6-foot, 185 pounds
Position: Cornerback, Quarterback
Hometown: Opelika, Ala.
School: Opelika High School
Ranking: | No. 29 CB prospect nationally
Recruiting: Committed to Alabama, but has taken several unofficial visits to Auburn this season. Miami is also competing for a visit.
Quick Take: Roberts isn't going to wow with his arm in terms of accuracy, but quick hitters and his athleticism make him effective in spots when he decides to throw. But make no mistake about it, the senior is a run-first quarterback and has improved in his decision-making within Opelika's spread, read-option look. He is elusive enough in the open field to make plays, but excels most with his acceleration and top speed while running with better power than one may think.
Below are select plays from Opelika's October 25 game against rival Auburn (Ala.) High, in which Roberts played almost exclusively on offense. He is wearing No. 4 in red.
