Robertson has big time potential

Sophomore defensive end Auston Robertson of Fort Wayne (Ind.) Wayne talks about moving from wide receiver to defensive end for his junior and senior years, as well as what he has planned for the summer.

Sophomore defensive end Auston Robertson of Fort Wayne (Ind.) Wayne may only have played defensive end for all of three weeks so far, but the potential this 6-foot-5, 230-pound defensive end has is obvious.

Robertson was one of the top performers at RAS camp in Fort Wayne on Saturday. He played wide receiver for Wayne as a freshman and sophomore, but will move to defensive end for his last two years.

"I wish that I made the move sooner because right now, I'm relying all on instincts to make plays," Robertson said. "The coaches out here are helping me a lot, though."

Robertson has offers from Akron, Toledo and Indiana.

"It feels good," Robertson said. "But, I'm not too focused on that stuff right now. I won't think about making a list of schools until my junior year."

Robertson camped with Ohio State on Sunday, a day after he picked up his first Big Ten offer from Indiana.

"I have been to Indiana before, but not really for football," Robertson said. "The stadium is nice, but I won't really know about how I like it until I take an unofficial visit."

Robertson is a natural athlete and pass-rusher.

"Speed and my ability after they get my hands on me," Robertson said when asked to define his strengths. "I'm a competitor."
