Robertson Ready To Tackle The Next Level
"I'm most likely heading down there on Monday or Tuesday," said Robertson. "I'm looking forward to meeting the new guys that are coming in and just starting my college career."
Robertson, who totaled 74 tackles, 7 ½ sacks, 2 fumble recoveries, and 4 forced fumbles in his senior season, has set a few goals for himself in the upcoming year.
"I just want to stay healthy and be able to compete with the other guys. I want to get faster and stronger and learn everything. I'm just going to work hard."
Robertson was invited to take part in the annual Offense-Defense All American game in Fort Lauderdale, FL last week, and he enjoyed meeting and hanging out with several of his future Gamecock teammates at the all star event.
"That was a lot of fun. I was playing with a lot of guys that are going to be my future teammates, and I got a chance to see what it's going to be like in the future. There were like eight guys that are all committed to South Carolina all playing on the same team. It was a great experience."
The defensive line particularly had a Gamecock flavor to it, as Robertson, Cliff Matthews, and USC lean Carlos Dunlap all battled it out for positioning at defensive end, and according to Robertson, that gave him a good idea of what to expect on the next level.
"It was fun to me, knowing that we're all going to be playing together, and we can help each other out in the long run. Knowing that all of us are going to be playing at South Carolina on the same D-line, I knew we weren't going to have any problems. In the game, we were all trying to compete to see who could get the most sacks, and Cliff ended up with the most."
Lastly, Robertson wanted to pass on a message to Gamecock Nation as he is set to begin his college career.
"Get ready. I'm on my way, and I'm ready to help them win."
