North Carolina Still On Robertson's Mind

With the goal of making his collegiate decision by the end of the summer, Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland County defensive end Travian Robertson is attempting to evaluate his scholarship offering schools in the upcoming months.

"(I'm looking for) a school that's hard on discipline and cares about the players," Robertson told Inside Carolina on Sunday. "I'm not looking to start, but I want to get on the field and play my freshmen year."

About a week ago, Robertson unofficially visited N.C. State and is fresh off a trip to Columbia.

"I took a trip to South Carolina unofficially Wednesday," said Robertson. "It was something I had to go see. I want to see all the schools before I make a decision."

Robertson is in the process of planning a trip to Clemson and figures to attended camps, but not participate, at South Carolina, Florida, and North Carolina.

At the present time, Robertson holds offers from Clemson, N.C. State, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia Tech. He claims he is looking at all six schools, but four stand out.

"All that have offered me I'm interested in, but I have four that I'm very interested in -- [N.C.] State, [North] Carolina, South Carolina, and Clemson," said Robertson.

Currently lacking a leader among his favorites, Robertson denies published reports which state the Gamecocks and Wolfpack are his "top two."

"No, I was saying that South Carolina and N.C. State were the two closest – both are two hours away. No [they aren't my leaders], it was just something I was comparing at the time."

A four-star prospect, the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder missed all but three games of his junior season with a knee injury, but still totaled 11 tackles and three sacks.
