Robertson planning July camps

One of the fastest-rising prospects in the Midwest's 2016 class is Fort Wayne (Ind.) Wayne's Auston Robertson who already holds four offers and will look to earn more at July camps.
"I am going to Ohio State's Friday Night Lights and then I might go to Penn State's one-day on the 18th or 19th," Robertson said.
The camps at Ohio State and Penn State will be the first time he will work out for either school. He camped at Michigan and Notre Dame in June, earning an offer from the Fighting Irish after his performance in South Bend.
"That was exciting because with (Fort Wayne athletes) Drue (Tranquil) and Jaylon (Smith) going there," Robertson said. "I didn't think they were going to offer at first, but I got the offer."
Michigan did not immediately offer after Robertson's camp performance, but he was encouraged by the feedback he received from the Wolverines.
"They said they would like to get me up there for another visit," Robertson said. "I had plans on going last week, but I think we'll wait on it and go in a week or two coming up.
"I think they are interested. After the camp they showed us around. I like the city it is in and I liked the stadium."
The other three schools that have offered Robertson are Akron, Indiana and Toledo and he is taking the rush of new interest in stride.
"It is exciting and I am just enjoying the process," he said. "I don't have any dream schools, I just want to go to a college that will help me get a good education and has a good team as well."
The 6-foot-5, 234-pound Robertson started this off-season primarily playing tight end and wide receiver for his 7-on-7 team, but as his recruitment has progressed more schools are looking at him for defensive end.
"I'm adapting to it pretty well," Robertson said. "I like both (positions), but I just like playing the game and it doesn't matter where I play."
Robertson said he is currently working on adding weight to his frame and his next target weight to reach is 245 pounds.
