Two weeks ago, on Sept. 15, Clemson extended a rare offer to a freshman in high school.
Callaway (Ga.) 2020 wide receiver Michael Robertson was the recipient. Robertson, the nephew of former five-star and current Cal receiver Demetris Robertson, is an electric playmaker who looks and plays beyond his years.
Georgia was first to offer Robertson in January. Tennessee and California offered after Clemson the same week.
The Clemson Insider recently spoke with Robertson about his offer from the Tigers.
“I was excited,” Robertson said. “It was the same time three years ago when my uncle (Demetris Robertson) got his. My dad told me that.”
Robertson’s father knows Clemson tight end Milan Richardson’s father, and thus, Robertson has heard plenty about Clemson.
“Their academics are good,” Robertson said. “They compete. He has told me about the campus and coaches.”
Robertson hasn’t yet visited Clemson but said he will down the road. What is he looking forward to seeing?
“Classrooms, how the environment is, the dorms, their workout facility,” Robertson said.
Right now, Robertson doesn’t have any early favorite schools.
“Not yet,” he said.
Robertson is one of the top prospects in the 2020 class. He is a teammate of 2019 offensive lineman Keiondre Jones, who also received an offer from Clemson on Sept. 15.
