Washington (D.C.) Dunbar running back Vernard Roberts recently participated in the Blacksburg NIKE Camp on Saturday and impressed pulling down MVP honors. On the recruiting front, Roberts and his brother have mentioned playing together, but right now they are favoring separate schools. Who does the tailback favor?
"Michigan State is my leader," he said. "It's because it's a running back school. I like the style of offense. Michigan State is more my style and it was a dream school since I was in diapers.
"West Virginia is falling in second. They are more of a spread type team and run the option."

Currently his brother Vance is favoring the Mountaineers. With the difference between the two, how are they working that out?
"I plan to go where my brother goes and we want to land in the same spot," he said. "We're having disagreements. He's trying to lead me towards West Virginia and tells me how good West Virginia is and I tell him about Michigan State."
Obviously right now, his brother hasn't landed an offer from Michigan State. What is State saying in reference to the possibility of extending an offer to his leader?
"My brother made a tape and they said it wasn't enough of his cornerback action," he said. "He's making another tape as we speak and once they get it they should let us know. They are really interested in him."
The brothers are contemplating camps this summer at Maryland, Pittsburgh and Wake Forest so far.
Meanwhile, Roberts went on to discuss his recent performance at the Blacksburg NIKE Camp.
"I thought it was a good time," he said. "I got to showcase my ability and got to play against a lot of other great players. It was just another day in the office."
