Reggie Roberson Jr. is Texas made, and after a great high school career at Mesquite Horn High School, the Desoto, Texas native took his talents to West Virginia to play ball for the Mountaineers. I am glad he thought about and came back to Texas because, West Virginia did not deserve him.
Roberson Jr. was a beast in high school hauling in 60 receptions for 1,060 yards and scored 11 touchdowns as a senior. He was also one of the best return men in high school football.
He would end up going to West Virginia and while he did get playing time, the freshman wide out was not getting the ball his way. He finished the year with 30 yards on just 6 receptions and he also caught a touchdown out of those six receptions.
He would transfer back home and commit to SMU and the rest my friends is history.
In 2018, Roberson Jr. started 7 games and finished second on the team with 802 yards and six touchdowns on just 52 receptions. He was a solid return man for the Mustangs as well.
Last year, Reggie started eight games before getting hurt, but it was not before he tore it up. He finished the season with 803 yards receiving passing his 2018 total by one yard. He also had 43 receptions and scored six touchdowns.
This year, I expect Reggie Roberson Jr. to tear it up. Roberson pulls away from defenders and with a big year could join James Proche in the NFL.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes:
Last year Reggie Roberson Jr, was the second best wide receiver on the Mustangs offense. He will be the number 1 wide out heading into 2020 and I would not be shocked if he has a huge season. I think he can finish the year with 1000 plus yards receiving and also end up with 60 plus receptions. His big play ability is scary good, and I would love to see him on my Buffalo Bills. I am a fan of his! – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds, Owner!
