Robertson enjoys Notre Dame trip
Auston Robertson didn't hesitate when asked what his favorite part of Saturday's game day experience at Notre Dame was. "Talking with Jaylon (Smith) after the game," Robertson said. "It was really good to catch up with him. He was telling me Notre Dame was a great place and that I would really like it there." Robertson, a four-star defensive end in the junior class from Fort Wayne (Ind.) Wayne, has picked up offers from both Notre Dame and Michigan, and he's receiving strong interest from Michigan State and Ohio State. "I was a little surprised at how badly Michigan played," Robertson said. "I didn't see that coming." Robertson isn't ready to name any favorites, but he and fellow Fort Wayne, Indiana standout wide receiver Austin Mack plan to attend the same school. Both will announce their commitments next June at RAS camp at Trine University. Standing out to him about Notre Dame is Irish defensive line coach Mike Elston. "I got to talk with him a little after the game," Robertson said. "He's a good person, and I really like his attitude." The 6-foot-5, 230-pound athlete played wide receiver up until this past summer when he made the switch to defense. Robertson will potentially visit Ohio State this upcoming weekend for the Buckeyes' game vs. Kent State. He plans to visit Michigan and Michigan State this season as well, though no plans have been set. Robertson is a four-star prospect and is ranked as the No. 11 defensive end in the class of 2016.
