The Oklahoman's Super 30: Tight end Jake Roberts showcases versatility on Norman North football teamBy Harry
At first, Tulsa won. Roberts committed to the Golden Hurricane on May 17. North Texas, the first school he visited, had always been a possibility, but it wasn’t a frontrunner.
Then the Mean Green offered him a scholarship on June 1. When Roberts returned to Denton, Texas, for another visit, he had a new perspective.
As he immersed himself in the UNT environment, he faced a dilemma. Although he liked Tulsa, multiple factors drew him toward the Mean Green. He could envision himself in the lineup as a tight end. 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.”

Johnson reportedly waffling: After pledging to TU last month, Alto (Texas) athlete Keenen Johnson has also been considering North Texas following the hiring of Seth Littrell, according to the Denton (Texas) Record-Chronicle.
“I am finalizing my decision,” Johnson told the newspaper. “I want to talk it over with my family and take my official visits. I am considering Tulsa and North Texas. I can’t say right now who I am leaning towards more.”
