Robertson Anxious To Experience OSU

"I have been waiting to make this visit since they sent me the date," said Killeen, Texas safety prospect Deric Robertson, who will be part of a monster recruiting official visit weekend starting Friday at Oklahoma State. "I really am looking forward to making my official visit."

Deric Robertson had a tremendous season helping lead Killeen into the playoffs, and he finished with 54 tackles and two interceptions, one of which he returned for a touchdown. He earned all-district honors for his efforts.

The son of two retired military members, Robertson said he is really excited about his upcoming opportunity to play in the International Bowl for Team USA. The game will be played in Austin, Texas on Tuesday, Feb 5, the night before signing day, and he will be playing with four of his future Cowboy teammates in the game against an International All-Star team.

Along with Robertson, Tyler John wide receiver Fred Ross, Waco University defensive tackle Ben Hughes, St. Louis Country Day and Mary Institute offensive lineman Jack Kurzu, and San Antonio Madison defensive tackle Vincent Taylor will all play in the game televised on CBS College Sports on cable and satellite.

"I'm looking forward to that too," said Robertson. "It is really going to be good to be with all those guys."

The players will all get together the next morning for a mass signing and OSU will be strongly represented.

Robertson has really beefed up. It's pretty impressive as he told us he is now 6-2, 203 pounds and has run a 4.4 hand timed forty. He has a bench max of 335 pounds and a squat of 510. Those numbers are outstanding for a graduating senior high school safety.

As for our upcoming Go Pokes Magazine recruiting issue feature, Robertson told us about his experiences with community service and what it means to him, and that too is very impressive.
