Roberson served as one half of a pretty deadly quarterback combo for the Hoosiers last season, teaming with Nate Sudfeld to lead debatably the most dangerous offense in the Big Ten. Roberson was the more dual-threat QB of the two. He passed for 1,128 yards and 15 touchdowns, rushing for 423 yards and five touchdowns. In three seasons with Indiana, he threw for 2,433 yards and 20 touchdowns and ran for 982 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Roberson was ranked as a three-star recruit by Rivals coming out of his Indianapolis high school. With his transfer to an FCS school, he'll be eligible to play this season.
