Four-star Texas defensive back commit Jermaine Roberts (New Orleans/Saint Augustine) understands the game and respects the process.

Just because a recruit gives his verbal pledge, as Roberts did to the Longhorns on April 12, doesn’t mean other programs simply are going to wave a white flag and surrender the battle.

More often than not those on the outside looking in only will increase their recruiting efforts to try to sway a young man's mind.

Several national powers are trying to do that to Roberts, which he appreciates, but also politely declines.
