Robertson lands SEC interest

Zach Robertson has seen a tremendous amount of interest coming in from major programs across the country and that's all good news because he doesn't plan to commit until after his senior season.
The 6-foot-5, 308-pound four-star offensive lineman from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco has recently been offered by LSU - he's planning an official visit there - and Robertson said other top teams have reached out as well.
"I have received a lot more SEC interest and I got LSU to offer and then Clemson and Georgia started talking to me," Robertson said. "Coach (Lane) Kiffin from Alabama came and we have talked so it's really been busy and schools are showing me a lot of love.
"A lot of the schools are trying to get me to some of their camps and they want me to attend some practices. I don't know if I'll do any camps even at all. I'm not sure yet."
Robertson, rated No. 188 in the 2015 class by Rivals.com, already has landed offers from Arizona State, Arkansas, Cal, LSU, Nebraska, Notre Dame, UCLA, USC and Utah.
Oregon is showing a lot more interest and Robertson is hopeful the Ducks come through with an offer soon. The relationship is preliminary but the Bosco recruit is definitely interested in that Pac-12 powerhouse.
"Coach (Joe) Bernardi talks to me just about every day," Robertson said. "We just talk about the school and he wants to know if I'm interested. He wants to build that relationship with me before they offer me. They came by the school last Wednesday and they've been talking about (an offer)."
As for a decision, Robertson said he doesn't plan to do anything until after his senior season. An official visit to LSU is almost a definite and he's leaning toward taking one to Washington as well. Other possibilities for trips include Arizona State, Notre Dame, USC and UCLA.
"I think I might just keep it open and wait until after the season," Robertson said. "I don't think I'm going to wait until signing day but it's going to be after the season. I want to take my officials."
