Bryce Roberts requests transfer from New Mexico State

The sophomore tight end showed promise but was not utilized enough.

The Aggie roster has taken a hit just one week into the offseason. Today, sophomore tight end Bryce Roberts announced via Twitter that he is entering the transfer pool.

To me, Roberts was an underutilized player. He always seemed to be open (especially in the red zone) and was ironically kind of forgotten about in a pass happy team.

Hailing from Yukon, Oklahoma, Roberts played in all 13 games last year as a freshman hauling in nine catches for 73 yards and three touchdowns. This year, however, he only had 10 catches for 76 yards and one touchdown.

The Aggies early season offensive woes didn’t help his production but again, I felt like he was an underutilized asset to the team. With defenses keying in on the wideouts and running backs, Roberts usually had the middle of the field open it seemed. I certainly have always lobbied for him to get the ball more.

While I am sad to see him go, I completely understand his decision. Someone is going to get an underrated player.
