Illinois commit Roberts tears ACL

Illinois commit Roberts tears ACL

Austin Roberts has compiled 46 tackles this season for Rice Lake (Wis.) High School.

Those tackle totals will likely remain the rest of the season after the Class of 2014 Illinois commit tore an ACL last Friday during Rice Lake's 28-21 loss at Hudson (Wis.) High School.

Rice Lake coach Dan Hill said Sunday he didn't know the extent of Roberts' injury at the time, but found out Monday it was the ACL. Roberts, who committed to Illinois on June 13 and is one of two linebacker commits for Illinois in the Class of 2014, is expected to miss the rest of Rice Lake's season.
