Roberts said he is ready to be a Hoosier


Indiana has made Bloomington North running back D’Angelo Roberts a priority since it began recruiting the class of 2011.

That paid off today, when Roberts verbally committed to Indiana.

Roberts, who is 323 yards behind the Monroe County career rushing record entering his senior year, said he was talking to Indiana running backs coach/associate head coach Dennis Springer and “just felt like today was the day to become a Hoosier.”

“I’ve been here (in Bloomington) for a while,” Roberts said. “I see it as a good, up-and-coming program. And I have a real good relationship with coach (Dennis) Springer. That’s all I need right there.”

Roberts ran for 2,604 yards and 32 touchdowns as a junior, along with 12 catches (and three more scores). He was a workhorse of a back, with 388 carries in 12 games, during what is the state’s 17th-best single-season total.

    You seriously cut the rest if the story from the blog (after it was posted for a while) and made it subscription only? Really?

    Jimmy,

    This site is unparalleled in the frequency with which it posts free content, and the quality and detail of that content. God forbid they actually get paid for their craft on occasion.

    Stop whining and pay the measly $6 a month if you want to read the print stories too. Good grief.

    Exactly amosandandy. Times ARE tough. It’s the same for the guys writing the stories. They’ve got to make money too. I mean, it would be nice if everything is free, but that’s just not how it happens. For all of the work they do and information they get, no one would do that for free. Sorry, it’s just not gonna (and shouldn’t) happen.

    Jimmy,

    The full story was never posted. When the guys on the desk posted the story online, I took the main part of the story and kept it up.
    We’re in a most unusual situation. While papers are, more and more, talking about going to a paywall structure, it is a concept for the future. Those that are behind a paywall tend to be smaller and not cover high-interest beats like Indiana athletics. It’s been a constant struggle to find a balance between what to give you here and what to ask you to pay for.
    The basic philosophy we are working under and leaning towards for the future is that we will give you the headline and the what. If you want the who, the where, the why and the how, that’s behind the wall.

    I wouldn’t suggest going that route. There are always ways to get the information for free. If it means going to another site, so be it.

    Brad,

    I agree with your opinion. What you would pay for today will be available free in 12 to 72 hours. Since sporting news is not life saving or life threatening, the impact of the timeline is zero. Print media is in an unenviable time of change.

    SO refreshing – A top-notch guy who wants to play at home and build something special. Hard not to be impressed with Billy Boy’s recruiting. Hopefully his coaching will catch up, for it’s one thing to get kids in the door, and another to get them to make their beds and set the table.
