Running Back Has Two Favorites

The 5-11, 225-pound running back from Lakewood High, Justin Robertson, had a good day at the recent Los Angeles Combine. He talks about his recruitment and his current two favorite schools...

Lakewood (Calif.) High running back Justin Robertson (5-11, 225) made the most of his experience at the Los Angeles Combine, and in the process, showed that he could be considered more than a fullback at the next level.

"I think schools will see that I can be a power back and not just be a fullback," said Robertson.

Robertson ran a 4.7 forty, a time he thought was good for him. "I was the heaviest running back there, but my 40 time was better than a lot of guys," said Robertson.

It was a .05 improvement from the time he ran at the L.A. Nike Camp. At the Army All-American Combine in San Antonio, he benched 185 a total of 22 times, then upped it to 26 times at the Nike Camp. "I'm just continuing to work harder and get stronger," said Robertson.

He has yet to receive an offer, but is receiving interest from UCLA, Colorado, Oregon, USC, California, Oregon State and Kansas State.

"My top five schools are UCLA, Oregon, Colorado, USC and Cal," said Robertson. "UCLA and Oregon are my top two schools."

Robertson is cousins with Bruin offensive guard Shannon Tevaga. "He has a lot of good things to say about the coaches and the program," said Robertson.

Robertson said his GPA (2.9) is improving and he took the SAT on May 7th and is awaiting the results.
