"I'm big and can pound the ball," Robertson said. "I'm a big power back and have good speed too. I have great vision and love to punish people. I still want to get faster overall and work on my quickness."

Robertson favors Colorado and Washington solid over Arizona, Oregon and UCLA. All of his favorites have offered, except UCLA. "Colorado is recruiting me the hardest," Robertson said. "I like the recruiting coach, Darian Hagan. He keeps in contact with me each week and they have been the most consistent. I like that they are an up-and-coming team. They have a young team and said that I'd be able to make an early impact."

He will be visiting the Buffs on December 10. Robertson also has an official visit scheduled to Washington on January 6. "I have some family out there and it's a nice area," Robertson said. "The new coaches are great and they said they really need a big running back that can pound the ball the way I do. They said they see me playing right away."

The only two schools that Robertson has already visited are Oregon and UCLA and he admits that he loved watching the UCLA versus USC games growing up. "I always liked watching the local schools. I used to follow UCLA a lot," Robertson said. "I have family in Oregon too. I love the campus and facilities. It's a great place and really beautiful. Everything there is top of the line."

"I'd like to play early and go somewhere that has a pretty good tradition. I'd love to start as a freshman if possible," Robertson said. "Right now I'm just gonna enjoy the process until Signing Day."

He reports a 3.0 GPA and will be taking the SAT on December 3.
