"My top schools are Colorado State, New Mexico State, and Northern Colorado. I don't have a favorite," said Robert.

All schools involved like Robert at defensive tackle and that is what he prefers to play.

He says all he has ever received from CU is junk mail. Many schools may be slow playing him because he needs to get his grades up in order to qualify. He has a 2.1 core GPA right now and will take both his ACT and SAT in December.

He says his greatest attributes are his aggressiveness and love for the game.

Robert will start lining up visits after the season.
