Mizzou lands St. Mary’s running back Jamal Roberts

COLUMBIA, Mo. — Jamal Roberts wasn’t the biggest offensive star for St. Mary’s during last fall’s march to the Class 3 state championship, but he powered the Dragons’ ground attack, nearly rushing for 1,000 yards. He can build on his breakout season this fall. First, though, a recruiting decision. Roberts cleared up that mystery Sunday, announcing his verbal commitment to Missouri.

Roberts, widely rated a three-star prospect, announced his pledge on social media, becoming the seventh commitment for MU’s 2023 class and the fifth from within the state border or just beyond in Illinois. Roberts has also received offers from Power 5 teams Arizona State, Florida State and Kansas State.
