In case you missed it, Nebraska four-star linebacker commit Avery Roberts had an interesting tweet out LSU running back Leonard Fournette, saying that he would "...put him to sleep!" if they ever met on the football field.

The tweet was eventually deleted, but Fournette found out about it and sent Roberts the following personal message, which was screenshotted and tweeted out by the four-star prospect.

Awesome move by Fournette by taking the high road and providing the young football player with some future advice.

Nothing to see just a harmless troll that got blown out of proportion and actually got acknowledged

Good to see he took the high road here but wouldnt have expected anything else with him. On another note, I havent read the comments yet so Im guessing the words "class or classy" has been used at least 15 times now. Anything less and TD posters are sleeping.

The kid was pumped that LF7 even acknowledged him. Nothing to see here. Good luck to both.

High road? Lol he called him "young boy". He might as well as called him a bitch. Dude just took it, too.

Based on Fournette saying "boy I know it was a joke", you can tell that kid backed down heavily on what he said right before that.

Should have just ignored the "boy" IMO. The kid got the exposure he was looking for.
