Houston LB transfer will play in 2013
By Vince Verhei
Linebacker Elandon Roberts had decided to transfer from Morgan State to Houston, but he didn't know when he'd be allowed to play for the Cougars. However, Joseph Duarte of the Houston Chronicle reports that Roberts has been granted a transfer waiver, and will be eligible to play this fall.
"In one season at Morgan State, Roberts was a top candidate for the Jerry Rice Award, given to the nation’s top freshman in the Football Championship Subdivision (Division I-AA)," Duarte writes.
"The 6-1, 225-pound Roberts, who is from Port Arthur, had 107 tackles, nine tackles for loss, two sacks, one interception and two pass breakups last season."
