One of the top running back prospects in the state of Texas, Corey Robertson is likely to see his recruitment reach news heights this summer.

"I just received my third offer this past Friday from Colorado," said Robertson. "Utah also gave me a verbal offer and it is suppose to be coming in writing. Right now, my top schools are Iowa (offered in February), Colorado, Arkansas, North Carolina State, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, and Florida."

The 6-foot, 205-pound Robertson, whom also holds an offer from Baylor, has plans to attend camps at three of the nation's elite programs.

"I'm signed up to attend camps at Oklahoma, Iowa, and USC. I'm attending three days of all of their camps. I haven't heard from USC, and only gotten occasional mail from Oklahoma, but I decided on these camps last January."

In a previous interview conducted by The Insiders, Robertson had this to say about Iowa:

"They run the ball. And you can run it behind that big OL they got. They just seem to have an experienced and well-coached OL that is good at reading defenses and making their blocks in their I-back offense with their zone blocking schemes. Just seems to be working well for running backs there."

He rushed for 2159 yards on 232 carries (9.3 ypc) recording 31 touchdowns as a junior.

At this time, Robertson is tentatively planning to attend this weekend's TheInsiders/MSL Combine in Dallas, Texas on the SMU campus.
