Robertson to Visit Michigan, Hopes For Offer

2016 Fort Wayne (Ind.) four-star defensive end Auston Robertson reflects on his Michigan camp experience and details his plans to visit Ann Arbor with a friend as well.

Easily one of the most gifted athletes in attendance at Michigan’s football camp a couple of weeks ago was 2016 Fort Wayne (Ind.) four-star defensive end Auston Robertson.

Standing 6-foot-5 and up to 234-pounds, Robertson excelled in 1 on 1’s as he continues to work on his technique as a pass rusher.

“I think I did good at the Michigan camp,” Robertson said. “At the end of the camp I think the head coach asked me to come back for like a visit or something. But yeah, my performance there was pretty good I would say.”

“I like the coaching staff there,” Robertson added. “A lot of the stuff that they were teaching there I’d learned at other camps but the coaches there wanted to see more technique.

“I liked that though because they use more technique and I got to learn more.”

Recently picking up an offer from Notre Dame, Robertson said the Wolverines haven’t specifically mentioned a scholarship just yet but that that could change in the near future.

“I didn’t really talk to them about that but they just said we have to get you up there again sometime,” Robertson said. “And I’m planning on going back there sometime next week. It’s going to be a week day.”

Robertson adding, “I’m hoping to get an offer from there (Michigan).”

Should Michigan extend an offer on his visit to Ann Arbor, that would vault the Wolverines up into a race at the top with a long time rival.

“From the offers that I have now they would be in the top two,” Robertson said. “With them and Notre Dame.”

Also planning to make the trip to Michigan is good friend and 2016 Fort Wayne (Ind.) Bishop Luers four-star wide out Austin Mack who actually picked up an offer from the Wolverines following a strong camp performance.

“We’re really close,” he said. “We train together and do a lot of stuff together.”

Could the duo be looking to head off to college together two years from now?

“It’s more of like, we have plans to go to the same college but if a college doesn’t fit me we’re looking for a college that fits both of us so if the college doesn’t fit me or it fits him he’d obviously go there and I won’t,” he said. “Hopefully we’ll find the college that fits both of us.”
