Roberts Talks Junior Day
Long Beach (Calif.) Wilson receiver Jemari Roberts (6-2, 205), one of Southern California's top athletes, was one of several prospects who visited Palo Alto last weekend for Junior Day at Stanford. "The junior day at Stanford was very nice," said Roberts. "I was surprised at just how big the campus was because I had never been there before last Saturday." Roberts had met a couple of the Stanford coaches previously, the Cardinal had offered him in the fall, but he got to spend more time with the coaches during the weekend and was impressed. "The coaching staff did a great job of making the day enjoyable and were very accommodating," said Roberts. It was the first junior day he had attended, and he was glad he made the visit North. "I think that being able to attend the Junior Day really helped in my evaluation of Stanford because you have to experience the campus for yourself to really get a feel for it," said Roberts. Roberts also talked with a few current Stanford players who had also gone through the recruiting process themselves. "The athletes that I got to talk to there gave me some insight into the recruiting process and I look forward to taking their advice and exploring my options," said Roberts. Oregon is the other school to have offered Roberts, and he'll be in Eugene next month. "I anticipate my next scheduled junior day, which is at Oregon in April," said Roberts. Next weekend, Roberts will be at the New Level/Scout Pass Camp in Las Vegas, one of the many camps he plans to attend during the spring. Roberts had over 1,000 all-purpose yards, with many coming as a kick returner, and scored seven touchdowns. Academically, he has a 4.1 GPA and scored a 1600 on his first attempt at the SAT. He is enrolled in two AP classes and two honors classes.
