Troy picks up pair of commitments

Published 3:03 pm Tuesday, November 6, 2012

Troy added to its commitment list this week adding Ariton High School defensive end Seth Roberts and Madison County High School running back Jordan Chunn. I will contact the players later in the day when they get home from school. I will also get a static list of commitments posted on the blog ASAP.

Ariton head coach Julius Head confirmed Roberts’ commitment and said the Trojans were getting not only a top-notch player, but a quality person.

“He goes above and beyond. He is a good defensive player and goes 110 percent every play,” Head said. “What makes him special is that he works hard in the weight room and does the extra things to make him better.”

Roberts (6-4, 225) is Troy’s second defensive player to commit and second defensive end as St. Paul’s Bryan Slater pledged to the Trojans earlier this year. Roberts also received interest from West Alabama, South Alabama and Jacksonville State.


A Madison County High School representative confirmed running back Jordan Chunn committed with the Trojans.

Chunn’s (6-0, 211) other offers came from Alabama A&M, Arkansas State, Jacksonville State, Middle Tennessee and UAB.
