CB Stephen Roberts, out of Opelika, AL committed to the Tide this afternoon on the phone with Nick Saban after an in-home visit from Kirby Smart.
Roberts, 6'0 177, is a consensus 4 star and is rated as the 20th best CB in the nation, although he did extremely well at the recent Rivals camp, and his ranking is expected to rise. A tweet from Greg Ostendorf mentioned that some scouts even have Roberts in Marlon Humphrey territory, which is about the greatest compliment a CB can get this season. If the staff can lock down Humphrey and hold on to Roberts and other recent commit Kalvarez Bessent (a borderline 5 star himself), the defensive backfield should be in GREAT shape for some years, especially considering the haul at DB that the Crimson Tide pulled in '13 with Eddie Jackson, Mo Smith, and Jonathan Cook.
