UCLA Leads for 2015 Lineman

Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco junior offensive lineman Zach Robertson had to sit out the first five games of the season after transferring in from Lakewood over the summer and his game is starting to round in to shape...

Zach Robertson and his Bosco teammates took on a tough Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei team over the weekend and came out on top with a solid 24-2 win.

"Our coaches challenged us all week and told us it was going to be a very physical game," Robertson said. "That was the best defensive line we faced all year, they had really good defensive ends but we stepped up the challenge and got the win.

"I'm feeling pretty good where my game is at right now. I'm still learning out there after missing the first five games. The rest of the guys have been in the offense for over a year and I'm still knocking off some rust but I'm feeling more comfortable every game."

Robertson plays left tackle for the Braves but said he's being recruiting strictly as a guard right now and he has no preference where he lines up at the next level. On the recruiting front, Robertson landed a pair of Pac 12 offers before he even played a down this year.

"USC and UCLA have both offered me," Robertson said. "I'm also hearing from California, Colorado and Washington, they're sending me mail almost every day so I like all five of those schools a lot right now.

"UCLA is probably my top school and I have a good relationship with the OL coach, Adrian Klemm. They have a good program and I like the idea of staying close to home. My relationship with the coaching staff and especially the line coach will be a major factor in my decision.

"USC has a good program too and were my first offer so that means a lot. I'm definitely open to everyone still. It's early for me since I'm just a junior and I know I have plenty of time to go through the process before I make my decision."
