Robertson Will Wait

As planned, Travian Robertson was in attendance for North Carolina's basketball game against Duke on Tuesday night. However, the four-star recruit decided to hold off on a verbal commitment.

"I'm going to wait and I'm going to go to other schools just to look at them and talk to my parents about things," said Robertson. "[The Tar Heels] are number one on my list, but I'm going to look at other schools before I make a choice."

Robertson, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound defensive end from Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland County, plans to unofficially visit Tennessee, South Carolina (February 14th), and NC State this month. Over the summer, Robertson will camp at South Carolina, North Carolina, and NC State.

Unless "something else pops up," Robertson said he will make a verbal commitment in August to avoid distraction during his senior football season. The Tar Heels are still the favorite to win his verbal commitment.

"I like the campus and the coaches treat you real well," said Robertson. "I have a lot of friends that go there, too."

UNC and NC State are still his lone Division I-A scholarship offers, but Robertson feels Tennessee and South Carolina are not too far behind on extending an offer.

As for Tuesday's visit? Robertson got to further develop his connection with the Tar Heel program, from the coaches to potential future teammates.

"It was good, it was my first Duke-North Carolina game and it was a good game," said Robertson. "I watched the basketball game and talked to the other recruits that were there [Aleric Mullins and Ryan Taylor].

"I talked to Coach [Brad] Lawing and the head coach [John Bunting]. [They talked about] me coming to the Junior Day on March 4th, and asked me how my knee was."

Despite playing in only two full games last season, Robertson totaled 11 tackles and three sacks as a junior. The rehab from his knee injury, which kept him on the mend all season, is coming along well, he said, and he figures to be back at 100 percent by the summer.
