LSU will host four-star offensive lineman Zach Robertson on an official visit this weekend, according to Scout's Greg Biggins.
Robertson has been committed to Arizona State since Dec. 26, but LSU has shown interest in him throughout his recruitment. Robertson wanted to take a visit during the season but was unable to schedule the trip. Now the Tigers will get their chance to make an impression.
Robertson ranks as the No. 25 offensive guard in the country, though he projects to either a guard or tackle on the next level.
"Robertson is a big, physical lineman who can play guard or tackle in college," reads Robertson's official scouting report. "He has played primarily tackle but his size and athleticism is probably better suited to play an interior role at the next level. He's very strong, a physical player and has benefited playing in an offense that is balanced in the run and pass. He's an intelligent player, very competitive and should have a chance to compete for playing time early in college."
Robertson has already taken official visits to Arizona State and Nebraska. The Bellflower, Calif., native will also visit USC on Jan. 23.
LSU still has a significant need along the offensive line, particularly at tackle. The Tigers currently have three commits — George Brown, Adrian Magee and Maea Teuhema — but have missed on guys like Jerry Tillery, William Sweet and lost former commit Matt Womack to Alabama.
Robertson is one of two offensive linemen expected to visit this weekend. LSU also plans to host four-star tackle Chidi Valentine-Okeke for an official.
