Miners pick up Rivals Top 60 DE
El Paso-Signing day is just around the corner. In fact the day is Feb. 2nd. You don't have to tell that to Mike Price and his staff. He's out there earning the frequent flier miles and talking the recruits into coming to our school here in far west Texas. Give him credit it's been a tough year but Mike Price surely had to have convinced this talented DE to come to the Miners.
Just early this morning, here at Minerdigs.net , we found out that Roy Robertson had committed to the Miners. Robertson is ranked in the Top 60 in his position by Rivals.com. To get Robertson, Price and co. had to beat out the likes of Arkansas, Baylor, Minnesota, and Texas Tech. It is a huge get to be able to wrangle in a three star player away from the larger BCS type schools.
At the current time we still haven't been able to receive comment from Robertson about this commit to the Miners bet rest assured we have made the calls out needed to see if we can set an interview in place.
You have to hand it to Andre Patterson and Coach Price to be able to pick up a player of Robertson's caliber this late in the singing period.
Next season is looking up isn't it?
