I'm looking at our arsenal at the tight end position and I'm salivating. An example or two? Asher Alberding listed at 6-3 259 and not fat? Actually lean? Jake Roberts, listed at 6-5, 250? Wow dude looks cut up and lean this year. Varkeys Gumms, 6-3, 230 and perhaps the best athlete of them all? Christian Lee at 6-3, 214 good hands and a poor man's Andy Blount? Super talent at the position and Roberts played in 13 games last year and had 98 yards TOTAL on 11 receptions. That's not enough! The others all played last year and had no receptions. That's unacceptable. https://meangreensports.com/sports/football/stats/2021

He learned about the indoor practice building that is under construction, part of a plan to elevate UNT athletics, and the program’s culture appealed to him. Aware that he was setting up his future in college and beyond, as his parents had reminded him, Roberts flipped his commitment to UNT on June 16. “What they have going at North Texas is really good,” Roberts said. “They’re gonna open a lot of eyes, and I want to be a part of that.” read more: https://oklahoman.com/article/5635738/the-oklahomans-super-30-tight-end-jake-roberts-showcases-versatility-on-norman-north-football-team
