Scout 300 LB Merlin Robertson

Gardena (Calif.) Serra linebacker Merlin Robertson was planning to make a summer commitment but said he will now go through the recruiting process and take all of his official visits before deciding.

Merlin Robertson has been on our radar since he was just a freshman at Serra and he has had an impressive off-season.

He is a naturally big kid, strong, tough and physical but he is moving a lot better this off-season than we can remember. His lateral mobility has improved and he is a lot better in space and dropping in to coverage. He still plays with that same physical edge to him and should have a big senior year.

On the recruiting front, Robertson has a top five of the BYU CougarsLSU TigersOklahoma SoonersOregon Ducks and USC Trojans. There was a time when he was planning to make a summer commitment but Robertson said his plan is to now wait all the way until Signing Day.
