Greg Roberts had a pretty good birthday Thursday.

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Nacogdoches junior defensive end told ETSN.fm on Thursday evening that Baylor had extended him the first offer of his recruitment.

Roberts and teammate Jacob Bragg, a 6-foot-3, 300-pound offensive lineman, recently attended a Texas junior day together. Bragg holds one offer from Louisiana Tech. The Dragon duo should continue to garner interest from programs across the region.

Roberts is the son of Greg Roberts, Sr., who won the 1978 Outland Trophy at Oklahoma and played five seasons in the NFL.
