Hempstead, Texas defender Tylond Robertson is an incredibly versatile player. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound prospect could line up as a defensive end or outside linebacker at the next level. Colleges have known about the small-town star for quite some time but he has yet to receive a ton of recruiting attention.
That could change soon, though, as he recently received test scores back. According to Robertson, he should not meet all the necessary requirements to make it through the NCAA Clearinghouse.
"I just got my ACT score back and I made an 18 so I should be good to go," Robertson said.
Robertson has attended numerous games at a school just up the road from his hometown and he makes it no secret that he would like to play for them if at all possible.
"I'm hoping to sign with Texas A&M," he said, "but I don't know what I'm going to be doing just yet. My coach says he called A&M to let them know (about the ACT score) but I haven't heard back from them just yet."
Robertson has spoken often with his recruiter for the Aggies in the past and hopes to do so again soon.
"Coach (Troy) Walters, that's my recruiting coach," he said. "They were recruiting me pretty hard before. I need to see where I stand with them. I called him but we keep missing each other."
For the time being, the three-star prospect has set up official visits to two other in-state programs.
"I haven't been on any visits just yet," Robertson said. "I'm going on one this Friday and another one next Friday, though. I'm going to Texas State and SFA."
