For UH special-teams analyst Kyle Robinson, Roy's development has been both expected and a welcome sight. Robinson said that although the coaching staff thought Roy performed solidly last season, there were games in which he lacked consistency, overkicking the ball and not locating properly.
"We expected him to come back better this year, and so far, he's been pretty good," Robinson said. "He's very talented, and as his understanding of the game grows, he's just going to get better and better. You tell him something once, and it's done. He understands the opportunity that's been given him, the scholarship, so he's fired up to be here."
