NORMAN, Oklahoma -- Norman junior Donovan Roberts picked up his third offer Thursday, receiving a scholarship offer from the Tulsa Golden Hurricane, his first offer from an in-state school.

The 6-foot, 195-pound junior running back racked up more than 2000 yards and 32 touchdowns in his junior season, leading the Tigers to their first playoff appearance since 2007.

This offer comes on the heels of an offer Wednesday from the Michigan Wolverines and an earlier offer from the Indiana Hoosiers. Roberts has interest from several Big 12 schools, but has yet to receive an offer from a school in the conference.
