Bishop Dunne DL talks SMU interest

2016 Bishop Dunne defensive lineman Jordon Robertson talked with Billy about camping at SMU and earning an offer there!

2016 Bishop Dunne defensive lineman Jordon Robertson camped at SMU Saturday and came away impressed while earning an offer.

“I visited the camp and they offered me on the spot. I feel real great about it and my family is real happy,” Robertson said. “They’re a great program and have great coaches.”

Robertson spent most of his time with defensive line coach Buddy Wyatt, but overall was impressed with the entire staff.

“It was great. I saw great things. I loved the way the coaches hyped the players up and got them mentally prepared for their next drills,” Robertson said.

Wyatt showed Robertson that he can be tough on players, but also joke around with them.

“I think he’s a great coach. He’s one of my favorite coaches with how his sense of humor is with the players,” Robertson said. “That’s one thing I really like about him.”

The coaching staff like Robertson’s physicality, but didn’t really talk about how he’d be used. Robertson was invited back for an unofficial visit as a way to gauge his interest in SMU.

“We just talked about me visiting up there and they want to see what interest I have in them,” Robertson said. “I have real high interest in them.”

Kansas State, Nevada, Iowa, Texas-San Antonio, Massachusetts and Central Arkansas have offered and are showing plenty of interest in Robertson.

Tulsa contacted Robertson Tuesday and Oregon State, Arizona State and Arkansas have shown interest as well. Robertson hasn’t given much thought to where he’d like to go.

“I really haven’t thought that far ahead. I got to sit down with all the coaches and talk about where I’m needed in their program,” Robertson said. “SMU is my top three. SMU, TCU and Texas A&M.”

Robertson plans to take an unofficial to SMU later this summer. Arkansas will get a camp visit and he camped at Oregon State Tuesday as well.

The 6-3, 245-pound defensive end said he wants to play right away at the next level.

“Just their level of needing me. A college that I can come in and play and change the program,” Robertson said. “They’ll get a hard-working player, who’s physical and a leader on and off the field,” Robertson said.

Robertson doesn’t have any sort of time frame for a decision.
