Lincolnton, Georgia’s Midarious “Duke” Roberts visits Tech

The 5-foot-10, 170 pound wide receiver from Lincolnton, Ga. also doubles as a cornerback. In Roberts’ junior season highlights, his speed is his most noticeable strength. Roberts’ 40-yard dash time of 4.42 is listed with his highlight package.

Roberts currently has no offers to play football on a collegiate level.
