Wyatt Roberts was somewhat of a star character in the "Last Chance U" documentary on Netflix as the starting quarterback for East Mississippi Community College. Teammate John Franklin III is battling for snaps right now at Auburn, but Roberts' future in football was undetermined last we checked.
Roberts, a Mississippi native, was hopeful for out-of-state offers, non-committal about a future that included Mississippi State football. Now he's in the mix with the Bulldogs, bringing national championship experience to the quarterback competition.
When Roberts suffered a rib injury against Mississippi Delta Community College in 2015, Franklin III took over and scored six touchdowns in the first half. The 48-0 thrashing set off a bench-clearing brawl that included with stitches and a trash can being thrown. The game stopped right there, along with the team's pursuit of a junior college championship.
Now Roberts will have a chance to potentially face Franklin in the SEC West if he finds his way on the field in Starkville, Mississippi. On "Last Chance U," there is an inside look at Franklin's recruitment and Roberts' then-undetermined football future.
