Zach Robertson has not played one game in his junior season yet but he already has offers from two Pac-12 powerhouses.
The 6-foot-5, 308-pound offensive lineman who transferred from Mayfair to Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco has to miss five games this season because of transfer rules but that has not stopped USC and UCLA from offering.
USC was first and Robertson reports that UCLA got involved in the last few days as well.
The Bruins were expecting to offer the 2015 prospect at the New Mexico State game last weekend but after talking to the coaches during the week, UCLA decided to offer right on the spot.
"My coach has a good friend at UCLA so they were in touch," Robertson said. "My mom e-mailed them and they told me to come to the game and they would offer me there but we talked to them and they decided to give it to me right there."
Robertson will miss Bosco's game next weekend against Los Angeles Crenshaw and then he should be back for the second part of the season and playoffs. That could help his recruitment even more although Robertson doesn't need much assistance.
The 2015 prospect already has the two offers and other programs have reached out as well, major teams from across the country.
"I talked to the Oklahoma coach," Robertson said. "He was just there at Bosco a few days ago. Definitely Cal is interested and Colorado is sending a lot of stuff as well."
All this attention is amazing to Robertson, a name at Mayfair last season but even he's surprised things have picked up so fast since he hasn't played at all this year.
"It's a dream come true," Robertson said. "It's really crazy."
