They say everything is bigger in Texas, and Trevor Roberson might be living proof of that.
Roberson is a 6-foot-11, 355-pound offensive lineman who attends Wellington High School in Wellington, Texas, and he just committed to Texas Tech on Saturday.

He's a member of the 2019 recruiting class, which makes the towering tackle only a senior-to-be in high school with a chance to grow even more before he gets to college.
Had Minnesota landed the almost 7-footer, it would have been back-to-back recruiting classes with an offensive lineman 6-foot-8 or taller. The Gophers landed Daniel Faalele in the 2018 class, who is 6-foot-8, 395 pounds.
The Red Raiders are the beneficiary, however, and Roberson gives Texas Tech six total commitments for the 2019 class. He's a three-star prospect and joins defensive end Steven Parker and wide receivers La'Vontae Shenault and Cameron Cantrell as the three-star commitments in the class.
