He caught two passes for 12 yards that year and was named the Academic Player of the Week on April 22, 2022. During his 2020 junior season, he did not see any game action and took a redshirt year.

Before joining Coastal Carolina, Roberts was named to the USA South All-Conference first team in 2019 as a sophomore at North Carolina Wesleyan. He led the conference in average yards per catch with 25.4 yards and ranked second in the conference in touchdowns with nine. He played in 10 games as a wide receiver, tallying 29 receptions for 737 yards and nine touchdowns. As a freshman, he recorded seven catches for 145 yards and two touchdowns.
