Defensive tackle Daryl Robertson out of Bedford (Va.) Liberty came out of the Virginia Tech Nike Camp one of the top lineman in the region.
Robertson is now expecting the evaluation period to kickoff with visits from Virginia's Anthony Poindexter and coaches from Wake Forest. What does the lineman like about the two schools?
"Virginia has a good academic program and they've had a good football program up there the last two years," he said. "Wake's head coach used to be the head coach at my high school in the earlier years, so that would be kind of cool. I'm sure they've got a good academic program there too."
Robertson still holds two offers from Maryland and Virginia. Despite this, the lineman said he's trying to keep his options open and look at everybody.
After the Nike Camp, Robertson is now focusing on preparing for next season.
"I'm just training hard and trying to get better now that the Nike Camp is done," he said. "I'm working to get my speed down and my strength up, I also wish I could get taller."
Next season Robertson is hoping for bigger things with Liberty in his senior year.
"I think we should do well, I hope I have a good season and we have some players returning that can really play," he said. "If some people step up, we'll do alright, our expectations are state always, but we've got to work hard to get there."
This summer Robertson plans to attend camps at Virginia, Virginia Tech and Maryland.
As for a decision, Robertson is thinking he'll hold out until close to Signing Day.
"I don't think I'll commit early," he said. "It'll probably be right around Signing Day, unless I get tired of having all the commotion and decide where I want to go."
The lineman was named first team all-region on offense and second team all-region on defense as he posted 75 tackles.
