Father of UT pledge on strength of commit

6/27/2013

Texas commitment Derick Roberson (San Antonio/Brennan), an ESPN 300 defensive end, has a way of keeping Longhorns fans on their toes.

Roberson is pretty reserved when it comes to talking to the media, and even Texas’ coaches at times, according to his father, Erick Roberson. But he has no trouble expressing himself through Twitter.

His handle -- @DerickJRoberson -- has given Longhorns fans plenty of reason to wonder about the stability of his commitment, which he made on Aug. 2, 2012.
