Already boasting offers from Illinois, Iowa and Central Michigan, 2017 Naperville (Ill.) Neuqua Valley wide receiver Isaiah Robertson has the prototypical size and ball skills to compete at the collegiate rank.
Standing 6-foot-3, 190-pounds, Robertson is spending the better part of his summer on the camp circuit hoping to impress any and all coaches that may be looking on.
One stop this summer was at Bolingbrook High for a Michigan satellite camp where he caught the attention of Wolverine’s recruiting coordinator Erik Campbell.
“No, I haven’t heard from Michigan yet,” Robertson told The Michigan Insider. “Coach Campbell I believe said they’d keep in touch, but I haven’t heard anything since. He just said he liked me and they would be in touch.”
Although communication between he and the Wolverines has been very limited since the camp performance, Robertson’s interest hasn’t dipped off.
“I’m very interested in them,” said Robertson. “I like their academics with them being one of the top schools in the area. I like the coaching staff and the direction they’re going in. I also like their football tradition.”
If the Wolverines were to come calling with a scholarship offer down the line, it would not only strike a positive chord with Robertson, but also for many in his inner circle.
“It would mean a lot especially because most of my family and family friends are from there,” said Robertson. “It would just be really cool. I was born and raised in Illinois, but both of my parents were in Michigan.”
Robertson is a prospect with a high ceiling, picking up added interest on the recruiting trail despite a calm few weeks. Still, he hopes to begin that relationship with the Wolverines and get up to campus sometime in the future.
“Right now, things have been relatively quiet especially since I can’t be contacted like that yet,” said Robertson. “I’m very interested in Michigan. They have a great program in progress and I believe I will be visiting in the future.”
