On Wednesdays we feature an in-state prospect who could be flying under the radar of college coaches. This week's UTR prospect is Little Rock Hall’s Elijah Roberts. 

Class: 2023 

Position: Defensive Lineman 

Size: 6-3, 285 pounds

Offer: Lyon College 

Stats:  31 tackles, 5 sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, 2 forced fumbles 

Coach Jeff Withrow on Roberts: 

"Great feet. High football IQ. Understands blocking schemes. Defensively, gets off blocks very well. Very athletic linemen. Good student. Holds an offer from Lyon, of which he is very appreciative. I think at worst he is a D2 guy. He has been invited on a visit to Oklahoma State on Nov. 26.”
