Georgia DT commits to Wolfpack

Defensive tackle Deion Roberson of Tucker (Ga.) High, who suffered a season-ending injury in the opening game of his senior season, has committed to N.C. State.

Tucker coach Franklin Stephens said Roberson received eight to 10 scholarship offers based on his play during a strong junior year. Stephens said the schools – which included N.C. State, Louisville, West Virginia, East Carolina, Michigan State and Maryland – didn’t withdraw their offers despite the injury.

Roberson, who’s 6-foot-3 and 260 pounds, suffered a dislocated ankle in Tucker’s opener.

“Deion is that rare kid you can’t find,” Stephens said. “He’s got size and speed.”
