4-Star Nebraska LB Commit Says He'd "Put Leonard Fournette To Sleep"

Tackling LSU running back Leonard Fournette isn't an easy task for any defender. Sometimes, just getting in Fournette's way results in this happening

So maybe Nebraska four-star linebacker commit Avery Roberts is just being young and foolish when he responded how he did to a tweet asking what you would do if Fournette came running at you. 

That's right. Roberts says he not only wouldn't back down, he'd put Fournette to sleep. Bold statement for sure, but you don't get to be ranked as one of the top inside linebackers in the 2017 class without the ability to hit and a boatload of confidence. 

Roberts has both.
