We may be jumping the gun a bit (there has been no official news release from the University of Idaho), but we've heard from several of our sources this week that speedster John Roberson, an athlete originally out of Dorsey High is coming to Idaho as a junior out of Pasadena College in California to join the 2010 Vandal football team.
As we seek to get confirmation on his status, below is a quick summary of what Roberson brings to the team. So far he's been seen most with the wide receivers, showing explosion with his 4.45-40 speed, outstanding hands and excellent balance. He was listed as both a tailback and wide receiver with Pasadena (#2 rusher, #4 receiver), and caught a number of passes on flare routes out of the backfield.
