Whats your take on his commitment right now, is he solid at all ?
Derick J. Roberson @DerickJRoberson 6h
Idk where i want to go to college, but im low-key trying to get out of Texas though
Im just waiting for _________ to offer me then its a done deal
9 and 4 at Texas sucks!

Do you just think that or know ? I think it's real, I think he made that for his "football" account
Nope. This is a troll account.
I think that's a legit question
As far as I know he's solid. I don't put much stock into what a 17-year-old tweets out -- you never know what might have prompted it or if he even posted it himself.
I've attempted to reach out Roberson this evening but so far I haven't been able to touch base with him. If I hear anything you know I'll pass it along.
Thanks Jeff for trying, I hope you are right !
April Fools Day joke?
Maybe it's real. Maybe it's not. If the kid has two twitter accounts then that's two too many.
Either way I have very little confidence in him having a promising future at Texas.
For what it's worth, That is a legit account from Derick Roberson. I have no idea where this kids head is at. One minute he solid as can be and doesn't want more offers and all of sudden he needs to get outta Texas.
how do you know that's a real account?
I saw when he tweeted about making it and wanting "longhorn nation" to follow it.
He probably got a little high and took out his frustrations over whatever is going on with him on twitter. Twitter +alcohol/drugs and stupidity ensues.
Maybe he robbed a bank?
It's a fake account. Doesn't make any sense. No doubt some aggy made it.
What makes you say this? I think this kid has a very, very bright future at the next level, hopefully at Texas. Having seen him in person against the soon-to-be state champs (Cedar Park), he has the size, speed, and frame that you want from a DE recruit.
WHY? Kid looks fantastic. Texas has done very well putting DEs in the league. I really do not understand this comment at all..
Don't be afraid to ride the lightning.
Not a fake account and he is asking his followers to follow him at the new account.
If this account os for real someone needs to have a talk with this young man and set things strsight. I would never want to put up with this BS from a junior in high school. Here, we'll make it easier for you.
If success was only predicated on talent than I'd agree. There's more to it though.
Derick is committed to Texas. Believe me.
I like the post and the fact that your posting history on here have all been on topics and articles involving Roberson which lead me to believe 1) you only like him more than every other prospect and just have a little man crush on him and are not concerned with the rest of the recruiting class at all(this one I highly doubt) or 2) you know Derick personally or have a close tie to him. I personally vote for option two and given the context of your post I like it. Is there possibly any elaborating on that statement or is that all you're willing to say? Either way is fine thanks for the post.
