Nebraska LB Verbal Avery Roberts MVP At Rivals NJ Camp This Weekend

A pretty good weekend for the recent Husker verbal, but why did he get rated down?

I'm not normally one to do hype pieces on Nebraska Cornhuskers Football commits in separate pieces, but what Avery Roberts did this weekend was incredible, and it's going off a very odd rerating.

Earlier this week, ESPN decided to rerate their ESPN300, which is their top 300 recruits in the '17 cycle. Somehow, someway, their 11th best Inside Linebacker FELL out of the top 300, which is honestly hard to believe. It did knock down his 247composite rating.

Roberts wasn't very happy with that, and went out and won the Rivals NJ Camp MVP award on Saturday, for the second straight year.

Were they wrong? Well, here's the film to show you.

Now, this makes 2 Rivals camp MVP's to add to the Opening MVP he had last year. Speaking of The Opening, he showed up there today as well.

So, one has to wonder how ESPN dropped a kid that has won 3 MVP camps on the East coast in the last calendar year. When you figure that out, let us know.
