Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco offensive lineman Zach Robertson (6-4.5, 315), has five early offers, four from the Pac-12 and one national offer.

Notre Dame joined the mix, following offers from Cal, UCLA, USC and Utah.

"My most recent offer is from Notre Dame," said Robertson. "The head coach and offensive coordinator came by the school in January and offered me."

A few more schools are staying in steady contact with Robertson.

"I hear from Washington, Colorado, Georgia and Oklahoma a lot too," said Robertson.

For now, though, Robertson has three schools standing out.

"I have a solid top three of USC, UCLA and Notre Dame," said Robertson.

Robertson visited USC earlier this month for the Trojans' Junior Day.

"I went to USC and met with Coach (Tim) Drevno, their new line coach. He's a very good coach and I got to see the facilities and talk with the other coaches a lot."

Next up is a visit to UCLA in the near future.

"I'm going to visit UCLA real soon," said Robertson. "I've been talking to Coach (Adrian) Klemm about setting up a visit there."

Robertson attended the USC-UCLA game this past fall, as well as USC-Arizona at the Coliseum and UCLA-Cal at the Rose Bowl.

"It's nice being close to those schools so I can go to those games," said Robertson.

Robertson said the Bruins have been aggressive with him, but both schools have new signees that are teammates who are doing their part.

"Right now, I'd say UCLA is recruiting me the hardest," said Robertson. "Jacob (Tuioti-Mariner) and Jaleel (Wadood) both want me to come to UCLA with them. Malik (Dorton) and Damien (Mama) are doing the same with USC. Chandler (Leniu, a Cal signee), doesn't even try anymore."

Robertson said most schools envision him playing inside in college.

"I'm pretty sure it would be guard where I'll play," said Robertson. "I play tackle now but I think I'll end up at guard in college."

Robertson will be at next month's NFTC in Los Angeles.

Academically, he has a 3.2 and took the SAT in January.
