Clemson student Roberts will start at QB for Furman
Furman coach Clay Hendrix said Thursday Roberts had won the starting job. Roberts is a 6-foot-4 senior who is completing a dual engineering program where he’ll earn degrees from Furman and Clemson. Roberts spent his first three years attending Furman. He’s in his second year taking classes at Clemson.
Roberts was Furman’s backup quarterback last year, completing 9 of 13 passes for 110 yards and rushing for 71 yards. Roberts won the job over redshirt freshman JeMar Lincoln.
Roberts said he’s often parked his car outside the stadium where the second-ranked Tigers play. This weekend marks the first time he’ll have gone inside.
