Jermaine Roberts transferring from Texas

Posted February 1st, 2016


Texas cornerback Jermaine Roberts has left the program, Orangebloods reported on Monday and was later confirmed by a UT spokesman.

Initial reports indicated Roberts (5-9, 168 pounds) intends to transfer to Sam Houston State.

Roberts redshirted during the 2014 season and then suffered a knee injury, which sidelined him throughout his freshman season in 2015. Prior to enrolling at Texas, Roberts participated in the 2013 Under Armour All-America game and was an all-state pick from New Orleans.
